Patient Health & Safety Is Paramount

Just as we are passionate about helping you and your family smile brighter, we are committed to safeguarding your health. That’s why we have incorporated several safety measures in our practice.

Water distillation

We use Sterisil® water distillation for our dental procedures. The benefit of using distilled pure water is that we can remove any substances, like bacteria, that may compromise our patients’ health.

Amalgam separator

Additionally, we have added the Solmetex™ amalgam separator to our water lines. This device redirects toxic substances from our water treatment system when we remove old metal fillings. We are also proud to be a mercury-free dental practice!

Lowest dose and lowest scatter X-rays

To minimize your exposure to radiation, we utilize the KaVo NOMAD Pro 2 handheld X-ray system. This system uses the lowest dose and lowest scatter X-ray technology. As an extra measure of safety, we also protect our patients with lead aprons that include thyroid collars.


How often do I need to have an examination and cleaning?

We recommend that you come in twice per year, every six months, to have your teeth, gums and supportive tissues checked. That way, you won’t require more extensive treatment later on. Plus, a cleaning leaves your teeth feeling smooth and gleaming! In some cases, such as for those with gum disease, more frequent appointments may be necessary.

What is involved in a routine checkup?

We’ll discuss your medical history and whether you have any dental concerns. Then, we’ll perform a thorough evaluation of each tooth, making any necessary notes as we go. We’ll check your mouth for any early warning signs of oral cancer. Once the examination is complete, we’ll polish and floss your teeth to a luminous finish.

Is there pain involved in a routine checkup?

No. A routine checkup is gentle and simple to do. If necessary, we can supply nitrous oxide. We understand that some patients are nervous about visiting the dentist and we do our utmost to help you feel relaxed and comfortable.

Will I need X-rays?

X-rays allow for a more in-depth look at your oral health, showing every facet of your teeth. We take them at your routine examinations to ensure that nothing is missed. If we identify a potential issue, we may take more X-rays so that we fully understand the nature of your problem. We’ll never take any X-rays that are unnecessary.

If you’d like to show off a bright, gorgeous smile, we can help. Contact us today! Saturday appointments are available.
