Frequently Asked Questions

1. How would you describe your treatment recommendations?

Our office follows an evidence-based protocol. That is, all of our treatment methods and modalities, as well as our equipment (ie. X-ray, sterilization, etc), are all backed up by the latest scientific research ensuring the best dental treatment possible for you. We simply do not use technology or methods that have not been proven to have high levels of success

2. Do you employ modern methods?

From our digital x-rays, intraoral cameras to our state-of-the-art sterilization facility, we are able to provide you with some of dentistry's best advancements.

Not only do digital x-rays reduce the patient's radiation exposure by about 90 percent, they also make it easier to communicate to the patient as the images are easier to display

The best way is to schedule yourself for a thorough examination. Your initial oral examination will take about an hour and includes a visual examination, soft tissue and oral cancer screening with velscope, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
