About My Business:


Our philosphy is to maintain standards of excellence, patient satisfaction and comfort to the utmost of our abilities. To this end we provide several methods for our patients to relax and relieve their stress in the dental environment : Staff Relations - our staff and the doctor are open and attentive to every patient's needs. Treatment and Reception Room Environment - soothing environment, original photographic art, in-room television entertaintment, subdued and relaxing lighting all improve patient relaxation. Pharmacology - Oral Sedatives and Inhalation Sedation (Nitrous Oxide) are available for those patients who would benefit from this form of anxiety management. Computer assisted local anesthetic administration - if tissue pressure resistance increases during local anesthetic administration a computer logarithm in the anesthetic pump reduces the rate of administration to the site, and therefore improves patient comfort. Dental Lasers - The cold laser light treatment prevents heat build up at the treatment site and therefore allows a wide range of dental procedures to be performed with little or no anesthetic or drilling. NO NEEDLES, NO PAIN, NO DRILL, NO NOISE !!! For those procedures which require anesthesia, the laser is less traumatic than conventional dental instruments and therefore reduces damage to healthy adjacent tissue on a cellular level. Also, it will sterilize the treatment site, coagulate and precisely incise when needed, resulted in significantly more rapid and comfortable post operative recoveries. ADVANCED COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY - All treatment rooms and business facilities are networked and integrated with computerized charting, treatment planning, billing, and record keeping. Immediate Internet access for the treatment professional is also available in each treatment room. All Patients are provided with a computer generated chart and plan which includes anticipated insurance coverage for all future treatment needs after the initial appointment. Patients suffering from Temporomandibular Joint Disorders benefit from Computer Assisted Electrodiagostic Testing, including Electromyography, Electrognathology, Joint Vibration Sonography, and Transcutaneous Electrostimulation. Post Treatment Follow Up - for procedures which could result in post operative discomfort or complications we provide our patients with follow up appointments without additional charges BACKGROUND _ RALPH G.
