Tour Our Office
Advanced Dental Technology
We pride ourselves on having a modern practice. From the atmosphere, to the office systems, and beyond, we offer state-of-the-art dentistry in every way.
The dentist or hygienist inserts a pen-sized, camera-tipped wand into your mouth. The computing unit enlarges the full-color images and sends them to a TV screen comfortably viewed from the dental chair.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns
Our CEREC technology allows us to custom-make our patients' crowns over the course of a single visit to our office. Instead of requiring two or three appointments, our patients leave on the same day with custom-made crowns and brighter smiles.
A tiny sensor is placed in your mouth to emit a small amount of radiation – up to 90-percent less than traditional X-rays require. This creates a detailed image of your oral structures that is immediately viewable on a chairside monitor.
DIAGNOdent Laser-Assisted Cavity Detection
Cavity detection has gone hi-tech with DIAGNOdent. Using laser technology, we are able to detect the smallest areas of decay, and treat the cavity with a minimal amount of tooth reduction taking conservative dentistry to a whole new level.
Mercury-Free and Metal-Free Office
Though the ADA has stated that the mercury level in amalgam fillings is safe, we take no chances with your health. We are a mercury-free, metal-free dental practice offering all-porcelain restorations and composite fillings.
From online registration, to digital X-rays, we’ve created a paperless office. Not only does this provide patients convenience (no more hand-carrying film X-rays to referrals), but it’s also better for our planet.
We understand that some of our patients are apprehensive about seeing a dentist. Whether a recent experience or a lifelong worry has made you fearful, don’t let anxiety keep you from seeking the dental care you need and the oral health you deserve. Learn More About Sedation Dentistry.
