From our Patients
Do you offer sedation?
We offer conscious sedation (IV sedation) for our apprehensive patients. We utilize another facility for this procedure.
How long have you been around?
We have been practicing dentistry for 30 years. Nearly all of our staff members have been with the practice for a minimum of 15 years.
How do you do fillings and restoration?
For the past 20 years we have practiced dentistry guided by the philosophy of minimally invasive dentistry. When removing a cavity from a tooth we make the smallest hole possible in the tooth to get the bacteria out of the tooth.
Often times we don’t even use the drill. We use air abrasion technology. This technology consists of 25 micron abrasive particles driven by compressed air. This mixture of air and abrasive safely and effectively removes cavities from teeth.
Do you do orthodontics?
We have practiced orthodontics for over twenty years. Therefore we have a very thorough understanding of the principles of tooth movement. We also possess a very discerning eye for the subtleties of good versus great in finishing ortho cases. We only refer to a select group of orthodontists who share our philosophy of treatment and who pursue excellence in treating patients.
Do you do dental implants?
We have restored implants for over 25 years. If a natural tooth has been lost an implant is the longest lasting restoration dentistry offers. The success rate long term is 95%.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry to us means restoring any tooth to its optimum size, contour and shade. We, of course, have been doing this for a long time.In the last 15 years there has been a push in dentistry promoting cosmetic dentistry as only involving the front teeth upper and lower, but especially the upper teeth. There has been a lot of advertising concerning how chipped, fractured and discolored teeth can be bonded using tooth colored material or porcelain veneers. This of course can produce dramatic improvements. However we would never treat these broken and worn out front teeth without first considering the reasons these teeth are in the shape they are. We do not treat the symptoms of the problems. We treat the cause or reason behind the breakdown of the chewing system.
Do you treat children?
Yes, we do!
What type of bleaching system do you offer?
We provide custom trays to facilitate either in office or take home bleaching. Our bleach is the strongest available as regulated by the FDA.
Do you extract teeth or do root canals?
We do not do either, we refer both to specialists.
What kind of insurance do you take?
We accept most private and PPO plans. For further information, please call the office.
