Please highlight any unique services that your practice offers its patients. When the patient is seated in the back massage chair, dark glasses are placed to protect the eyes from foreign objects or a glare from my lighted magnification loupes. We also use a buffered anesthetic so the injections are more comfortable. I often use a dental dam to do the procedures, which is quickly placed to the area and gives a sterile and dry field. This allows for a better restoration with less procedure time. We often replace the old amalgam (commonly known as a silver filling) containing mercury, which is drilled out into a fine powder. By using the dental dam and isolating the area, the patients do not end up swallowing this fine metal powder. Describe the patient-doctor relationship at your practice. I pay attention to small details with my patients. I ask what’s new in their lives or if there are any changes in their medical history. I always place a small pillow behind their neck, place Vaseline on the lips and massage the joint after a procedure. I also follow up with them after a procedure and they are given my cell number just in case.

Are you using any new technology in your office? I’ve been in practice for about 30 years, but we relocated our office less than 10 years ago. The computers are networked into every room. Our digital x-ray equipment is unique in that the films are very thin like the conventional film size. Most digital sensors are thick and uncomfortable. I chose this type for the patient’s comfort. We also have an intraoral camera and a dental laser, which are new technologies in our office. What’s in store for you and your practice in the future? I take numerous continuing education courses to implement new techniques. We offer more of the adjunct services to make patients smile and feel good. This is a very exciting time to be in dentistry. So much has changed in the dental field, and I’m excited to deliver even better dentistry.
