Our office has a beverage bar to meet every patient’s needs. General Anesthesia and Nitrous Oxide are available for any patients that are apprehensive about their dental treatment.
We utilize the latest technology to provide you the quickest and most comfortable visit possible
We take pride in our state of the art technology we are able to provide to all our patients. We are one of a very small percent of dental practices to have a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) machine that offers a 3D visualization for the doctors to diagnose and treat any complicated dental procedure. This CBCT scan offers an in house 3D x-ray to immediately perform a virtual treatment plan experience.
We also have a microscope to provide improved illumination and magnification enhancing precision and manipulation of all diagnostic and technical aspects of endodontics. Our office offers digital imaging, which dramatically reduces radiation exposure to the patient while offering quick, convenient image acquisition. We have made significant investments in the best technology on the market to ensure the absolute safest, most predictable outcomes for our patients.
