Our High Standards
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
Getting to know you and your history is an essential first step. That’s why we begin by having you fill out a comprehensive medical and dental history. You can either download the Patient Questionnaire ahead of time, fill it out and bring it with you or just take care of it in the office when you arrive for you appointment. That’ll give us a solid foundation for reviewing your overall health, which will help up determine the proper course of action.
Once the paperwork is out of the way, we’ll begin your exam. A member of our team will begin by taking digital x-rays and intra-oral photos. We then evaluate your gums to check for gingivitis or other periodontal diseases (very important!), a process which includes an oral cancer screening using a revolutionary tool called Vizilite®. Once that’s done, Dr. Bacon will perform a complete oral exam and work with you to build a personalized oral health plan. The entire process typically lasts about 75 minutes. You’ll leave with a thorough understanding of your current dental health, what the next steps are and what they’re going to accomplish.
