Preventive Services

XraysThe mission of our office is to provide excellent dentistry to our patients in an efficient, professional, caring atmosphere and to educate them on their roles in maintenance and preventive dentistry. By stressing prevention we are striving to ensure the patient’s future dental needs are kept to a minimum and in so doing, the longevity of the dentistry performed is maximized.

Our preventive services include periodic oral cancer examinations, periodic decay-detecting X-rays, professional cleanings, fluoride treatments and oral hygiene instruction.

Staying Current

Excellent dentistry requires doctors and staff to be current in their knowledge of new materials and techniques. Our office is committed to continuing education. Our doctors attend seminars and courses yearly to remain informed of all new pertinent treatment modalities. The clinical staff attends courses as well, keeping them up-to-date on new advances in dental medicine. Our clerical staff attends business seminars to stay abreast of the ever-changing insurance world, so that we can help you obtain maximum benefits from your insurance.

Infection Control

Our entire office attends yearly seminars updating us in new recommendations. Staff members are trained in proper infection control and have been vaccinated against Hepatitis B-Virus. We utilize modern autoclaves to sterilize our equipment and all staff members wear masks, gloves, and protective eyewear. Disposable gloves worn while treating patients are never worn more than once and all surfaces, chairs and units are disinfected between patients to prevent cross-contamination.

Patient Comfort

For patients who are apprehensive, a personal tape player with a selection of tapes is available to help reduce anxiety. We also offer nitrous oxide (Laughing Gas) to alleviate a patient’s apprehension of receiving local anesthesia.
