A thorough oral cancer screening and dental examination, medical history, x-rays, and sometimes plaster models of your teeth are essential to a proper diagnosis. Emergency problems are cared for first. Then, a detailed treatment recommendation is given as a guideline to attain optimum dental health now and for years to come. We will also show you how to effectively clean you mouth to prevent disease.
To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly observe all Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and American Dental Association (ADA) guidelines. All instruments are cleaned, disinfected and routinely sterilized as recommended by the ADA and the CDC. Whenever possible, disposable single use items are used to ensure your safety. Handpieces are sterilized with a steam heat autoclave. All surfaces in the treatment rooms are cleaned and disinfected after each patient. All staff wear protective gloves, eyewear, uniforms and masks..
Our office attempts to make your visit as relaxed as possible. We understand how uneasy many patients may feel about their dental visit. Modern treatment techniques can be used with available stereo headphones, cable television, nitrous oxide gas, oral pharmacological agents and a local anesthetic to help ensure you are relaxed during your visit. We have electric motor handpieces which make less noise. Emergencies can occur at any time. We make every effort to handle your emergency dental needs as soon as possible. Our 24-hour emergency number is (866) 574-9280.
In addition to cable television, our patient flat screen video system in each treatment room has the computer based CAESY® video education program. It gives you the latest information about any dental problems you may have or want to know about and explains ways we can solve these problems. We also have intra-oral video cameras that allow us to show you the inside of your mouth.
