4 Critical things to Ask When Choosing a New Dentist
1) Do the doctors and hygienist wear magnification?
In this age of technology, it is imperative that clinicians use some type of magnification when performing tedious procedures. (Even jewelers use magnification). All of our doctors and hygienists use Design for Vision® magnification.
2) Is the office equipped with the latest technology?
Dentists are missing 75% of small cavities in the grooves of the teeth! Laser technology has now enabled us to find small cavities before they become a problem. The Diagnodent® is a fluorescent laser to detect cavities.
Digital Radiography/ Intra-oral Cameras- Our digital x-rays allow us to take x-rays with 75-90% less radiation than the conventional type. We use this technology as well as our camera to take photos of your teeth for insurance purposes and for patient education.
3) Do I have to run all over town for specialized treatment?
Our doctors perform a wide variety of services – in house:
- Cosmetic Dentistry
- Endodontics -(Root Canals)
- Children of all Ages
4) Are Financing Options available?
At Thomson Dental Arts, we want to provide the best treatment for our patients. We realize, however, that the reality of expense is a concern when commencing with treatment. Therefore, we have financial options listed. We do accept assignment of dental insurance with the patient being responsible for their estimated portion.
