Care and Commitment
From the waiting area, to the exam room, our practice is staffed with professionals who are completely dedicated to your oral health. Using advanced, state-of-the-art equipment designed with efficiency and safety in mind, we are able to provide you with the highest quality care. As you walk through our office, you will see that we keep everything comfortable, clean, and sterilized – because your comfort and safety is our number one priority. Our approach to dental care is all about the patient experience–YOUR experience – and we are committed to providing a personal touch to each visit, showing how much we care.
Digital X-Rays and Digital Panoramic X-Rays – Digital X-rays have the ability to take images of your teeth with a significantly smaller amount of radiation compared to traditional film X-rays, making them a safer alternative for children and pregnant women alike. Additionally, digital X-rays produce immediate images, allowing our dental professionals to reach a diagnosis faster, and start your treatment sooner.
Dry Shield Patient Comfort System – The Dry Shield Dental Isolation System is a new all-in-one dental device that allows our dentist to work more efficiently; it not only suctions fluid—it also protects your tongue, shields your airway, and even serves as a bite block. This system was created with the patient’s comfort in mind; it is made with soft, flexible material, helping you remain comfortable throughout your entire appointment.
Intraoral Camera – Intraoral cameras have the ability to provide us with live, updated images of your teeth in harder-to-see places of the mouth. They even allow you to see what we see as we explore your teeth, helping you be more informed about your diagnosis and treatment.
