HANDPIECES OR "DRILLS"
Our office is equipped with the newest line of dental drills. No longer do children have to be scared by the high pitch noise of the dental drill. The only sound children will hear is the light rush of water to cool the bur.
PAPERLESS DIGITAL OFFICE
We’ve implemented a sophisticated electronic dental records system that allows our doctors to review dental charts and X-Rays through a monitor located at each dental chair.
CLOSED WATER SYSTEM
Our treatment chairside water is supplied using refillable bottles rather than plumbed from the existing city water system. This allows us to continually ensure the quality of the water supply and to completely drain each system independently to facilitate regular cleaning.
