It is our goal that you feel welcome and comfortable in our office. When we built our new office in 2007, it was our desire to provide a facility that created an open and relaxed atmosphere. We also wanted a facility that would allow us to incorporate the latest dental technology and techniques now and for years to come as advances in dentistry become available.
There are many features and details in our office for your comfort and safety. We would like to point out some of these which we hope you have noticed.
We are easily accessible for handicapped patients. Our front door is only a short distance from the handicapped parking. Our treatment rooms are designed for access by wheelchair and the patient bathroom is easily accessible for the handicapped patient.
Large windows are a part of our design to allow for natural lighting. Natural lighting is important for cosmetic dentistry in choosing tooth colors and shades. Large windows also allow our patients to enjoy the view of the outdoor trees and flowers.
Our treatment rooms are comfortable and equipped for state of the art dental treatment.
For your comfort, we also have warm blankets, soft neck-support pillows, personal CDs with noise-cancelling headphones, and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) available . We also have coffee, tea, and bottled water available upon request.
All surfaces are disinfected after every patient with FDA-approved chemicals. Disposable barriers are placed covering most surfaces in the treatment room with new shields placed after each patient. The water supply for each treatment chair is bottled distilled water replenished daily and dispensed via an enclosed system. Our water lines are treated daily to prevent bacteria build-up.
For your safety, our sterilization room is specially designed and built to eliminate cross-contamination between patients. All contaminated instruments are processed on one side of the room by ultrasonic cleaning, then packaged, sealed, and autoclaved. Sterile instruments removed from the autoclave on the other side of the room are then stored in an enclosed cabinet until they are taken to a treatment room for use.
