We would like to
invite you to come tour our new facility, to see first hand the modern
state-of-the-art operatories. We have convenient hours,
with Monday and Wednesday evening appointments available and Saturday
appointments as well.
Our new waiting room is large
with comfortable chairs, the operatories are large
with amenities such as T.V's and VCR's and Computer Digital
Radiography. The CDR allows us to take
x-rays with 1/10th the radiation of normal
x-rays and to view them within 8 seconds
on a computer monitor. The new full head x-ray machine
(panorex) takes incredibly detailed radiographs with one-tenth (1/10th)
the radiation of a traditional panorex machine. This state of the art machine
allows us to visualize the x-ray as the machine is taking it. This machine also
takes detailed radiographs of the jaw joint that previously required CAT scans
or MRI’s. This allows us to serve you best with an immediate diagnosis
with minimal radiation.
We also have a new laser
cavity detection device, which allows us to
find cavities when they are not even
visible on x-rays. We have also acquired
an air abrasion unit, which eliminates the
need for drills in removing decay from certain
teeth. Additionally we have a state
of the art sterilization area and a
separate lab room to prevent cross contamination.
The bathrooms are large and squeaky clean.
We have added a laundry room to wash
and dry our garments and towels in
house . We also have over 600 square feet of storage,
which allows us to keep all pertinent
patient records in house under my supervision.
We have also
required an AED, which is an Automated External Defibrillator, which has been
shown to be invaluable in saving lives. Because we do a lot of sedation
dentistry, we also have (2) pulseoximeters which help us do our procedures with
a high level of safety.
We are certain you
will appreciate the 1st floor access with
close up parking. As we have endeavored to make
the new office as comfortable as possible
for our patients, we are always open to suggestion to
3 Dimensional CAT Scan
are proud to announce a new addition to our office equipment. In June, 2006 our
office had a 3 dimensional CAT scan machine installed. This state of the art
x-ray machine has the ability to provide concise detailed radiographs of the
entire head. These digitally enhanced radiographs allow the clinician to take 3
dimensional slices of any part of the head. Because it is a computer enhanced
digital image, the radiation dose for these CAT scan images is similar to
traditional panoramic images (full head x-ray).
Our office is one of the first in the state of Ohio to offer this technology,
allowing us to provide the most concise detail oriented care. These images are
useful in the surgical placement of implants, the visualization of the TMJ, the
visualization of abscesses or tumors, along with countless other orthodontic and
As patients increasingly ask for more sophisticated and immediate procedures,
our advanced in-office imaging systems provides very accurate information for
expanding general dentistry, oral and orthognathic surgery, implantology, TMJ
analysis, spinal studies, airway assessment, periodontal, orthodontic, impaction
and many other dental procedures.
I encourage interested patients to visit the companies website at www.imagingsciences.com
for more information on this exciting new technology. It is our commitment at
our dental office to serve you best with 'One Stop Dental Care' in order that
you can achieve and maintain a beautiful smile with straight healthy teeth, gums
and jaw joints. As dentistry evolves, we remain on the cutting edge of
technological advances for you ... our patients.
