Riki T. Kreitman, DMD Are you using any new technology in your office? When we built our state-of-the-art facility nine years ago, we integrated digital x-rays so we can better visualize decay and diagnose oral pathology. We also utilize soft tissue lasers, rotary endodontics and a Zoom! whitening system. We are always evaluating new technologies that are developing in dentistry and plan to incorporate them as they are perfected and become essential to improving patient care.

How do you ensure specialized care for your patients? Our professional staff is attentive to our patients’ needs and concerns and we ensure that there is always adequate time in our schedule to address any questions a patient might have regarding their care. For patients requiring extensive treatment, we design a custom plan and discuss the different approaches and treatment options available to them. But the most specialized care we provide comes from the sincerity and compassion with which we approach every patient. What are the most important qualities that a patient should look for when choosing a dentist? A dentist should have skill, intergrity and compassion. A dentist must have all three qualities in order to properly treat patients. Of course, it is necessary to also have the skills needed to perform intricate dental procedures. However, by understanding a person’s fears and concerns and addressing them with honesty, we are able to build a bond of mutual trust that sustains the relationship between the dentist and the patient.
