We have no on-site developing chemicals because we use digital cameras - a technology referred to as intraoral radiography - to take photos of your teeth. We can then record the images of our patients' teeth on our computer system for an easier-to manage and more-accessible system.

 

Cosmetic Dentistry (whitening)

Porcelain veneers
Bonding
Tooth whitening, including the Zoom 2 Advanced Power in-office whitening process (as seen on TV), custom-fit bleaching trays, and professional-strength Crest  Whitestrips


Please keep in mind that it's important to have a thorough dental exam prior to undergoing any whitening process. The exam is necessary for establishing that the patient is in generally good health. It also provides time to review all whitening options available to each particular patient. Medical history, medications, condition of natural teeth and condition of gums must all be evaluated and taken into consideration in making any decisions.

 

Our e-friendly environment

No on-site chemicals, paper reduction, cleaner air. What does all of this really mean?

We record as much as we can directly on our computer system and skip the paper shuffling so we don't waste the paper or the time. What little paper we do use, gets recycled.

By using digital imaging instead of traditional dental x-rays, we can show our patients their dental images, explain problems, simplify office record-keeping, and keep records secured off-site as a backup. The digitized imaging and computer system also ensures that Dr. Dan will have a patient's records available to him more quickly should a patient call with an emergency.

Our office also operates a high-quality air system consisting of ozone for freshness and UV for killing germs. "No on-site developing chemicals and a high-quality air system." Why does that matter to you? It matters because it means there's less "stuff" in the air, so it's a safer, cleaner, and more germ-free environment for the patients, for the staff and for those in the waiting area. In other words, it's better for everyone.
