Prevention & Education

Our practice believes that preventative education and care are instrumental to optimum dental health. We put forth every effort to provide patients with health care rather than disease care. We rely upon thorough dental exams -- checking the health of teeth and gums, performing scans for oral cancer and taking x-rays if necessary. We know how helpful patient education and regular teeth cleanings can be toward preventing dental disease. We work together on your dental health.

Complete Safety

Control over infection is very important in our office. We maintain strict sterilization and cross contamination preventative measures to protect both ourselves and our patients. All our dental instruments are precleaned in Ultrasonic Cleaner, then heat, steam, and pressure sterilized in a state-of-the-art Statim autoclave after each use. All exposed surfaces in the operatory are disinfected between each patient.

The steam sterilization process is monitored by mechanical, chemical (internal class 4 indicator and external class 1 indicator) and biological monitoring system (Henry Schein Maxitest in office Biological monitoring system) to ensure its effectiveness.

Our Digital x-ray system requires very little radiation to be emitted. Instead of film and chemicals, a tiny digital sensor is used, which sends the image directly to the computer. The radiation exposure is 80% less than traditional X-ray.
