Several of our staff speak Spanish or Armenian and will be happy to assist you, however, possible.
We find that patients are more comfortable when they know what to expect on each step of a proposed treatment. As learning is primarily a visual process, we offer a three-dimensional animated presentation of all major periodontal and dental implant procedures. This computerized presentation (known as Consult Pro), has become a valuable aid in patient education.
Our goal is that you are completely informed concerning your condition and any treatment that will be performed
We adhere to the highest professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our staff regularly attend safety seminars and are knowledgeable on the latest techniques.
We know that preventing the spread of infectious diseases such as AIDS, herpes, hepatitis and even the cold virus is critical. We use extensive sterilization procedures, going well beyond the guidelines recommended by the American Dental Association andCenters for Disease Control.
We use barrier techniques such as disposable masks and gloves and replace them with every new patient. Each piece of fixed operatory equipment is wiped-down with antibacterial solution prior to every clinical procedure. Sterile water delivery systems are utilized. We use autoclave sterilization for all instruments prior to dental examination and treatment. You can be assured that our staff have been specifically trained on sterilization procedures and their importance.
Patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. valvular heart conditions and artificial joints) may be asked to pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to treatment. We do this with your safety in mind. Please inform us if you have a condition that might require pre-medication.
