Patient Services

Our patients are our whole purpose! That’s why we offer so many dental services and choices. Your mouth is as unique as your thumbprint, so we’ll help you decide which dental treatments will work best for you. If you have questions about what to expect, just give us a call or send us an email.

Additional Services

  • Root Canal Therapy
    If necessary, we can perform root canal therapy for our patients. The procedure usually takes only one appointment, and many times, we can place your permanent restoration that visit, too! Now these appointments can be long ones, so come prepared, but we let you stop frequently for breaks. The best part is that these appointments are virtually pain free, and there is little to no discomfort following most treatments. If we are unable to perform your root canal treatment in our office, we have the finest endodontists that we can refer you to. We guarantee they will make your visit as easy as possible, just as we would. Once again, we will be happy to schedule that appointment for you while you wait.
  • Soft Tissue Lasers
    Another awesome advance in dental technology is dental lasers. We use a soft tissue laser that can perform procedures from crown extension surgery (creating more tooth structure above the gum line in order to accept a new crown), to periodontal treatments, to treating mouth ulcers. Lasers allow us to perform precise, conservative, and efficient dental procedures. We always want to provide the most conservative and comfortable treatments for our family of patients, and lasers are one way we achieve this goal. Our soft tissue laser is so gentle that many times our patients are not even numb during procedures, and healing times are dramatically reduced when compared to traditional surgery.
  • The Wand
    A virtually painless injection system. The wand is computer driven to allow the local anesthetic to enter the tissue slowly and virtually pain free. We also use topical gel anesthetic so that you don't feel the stick of the needle. The Wand is terrific for everyone, especially children and apprehensive adults.
  • Sealants
    A micro-thin layer of plastic applied to your chewing surfaces or your adult molars. The procedure benefits kids as well as adults, providing a quick, easy way to combat tooth decay.
  • Smile Reminders
    No matter where you are or what you’re doing, we’ll make sure you remember your dental appointment with a friendly Smile Reminder to your cell phone, email, or pager. All we need is your contact information and we can communicate by way of emails or text messaging. You can confirm or change appointments, or we can contact you immediately if an opening comes available in our schedule that will better fit your hectic life. After your appointment, we can send you e-surveys to find out how you felt about your visit and if there are ways we could make your time with us more enjoyable. Technology really is wonderful!
  • Financial Options
    We participate with several insurance plans. We accept and are happy to file with most other insurance carriers. Please give our office a call to find out the details concerning your particular insurance plan. We will be happy to discuss this with you.
    We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, and Care Credit Financing. We also offer a senior citizen discount! We are happy to help you any way we can. All it takes is a phone call or an email to begin the process. It really is that easy!
  • Digital Radiography
    Your overall health is important, so we’re investing in digital radiography, which allows us to take X-rays with up to 90-percent less radiation exposure to patients. Additionally, digital X-rays can be immediately transferred to a chairside monitor, so there’s no need to waste time developing film with chemicals that are bad for the environment. You deserve the best, and we’re working to bring it to you at Dentistry by Design.
  • CAESY
    CAESY Patient Education SystemPatient education is important to us because informed patients make the best decisions about their dental care. Our CAESY videos will show patients an array of dental information, from how dental procedures work to the best homecare techniques.
