We are located in a retail shopping center with plenty of free parking; the parking, building, and our office is wheel-chair accessible.
Our operatories are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment: we use dual monitors: patient can watch x-rays, and/or video exam on their monitor; doctor has her own monitor for diagnosis. Patients can watch their favorite movie while work is being done.
Low-dose Digital Radiography
We use low-radiation digital x-rays that uses up to 90% less radiation then standard x-ray systems. The x-ray images appear instantly on the computer, so our staff spends more time with you and not in the darkroom. Each image can be magnified and enhanced to reveal hidden problems. Your safety, comfort and care are our primary concerns.
We use a high resolution, wireless intra-oral camera, allowing doctor to use video as a diagnostic tool. You can watch the video live during the diagnosis. This camera magnifies images, allowing us to spot potential problems like cracked fillings, fractures in teeth, and beginning of decay. With this revolutionary tool, we can provide early diagnosis of small problems before they become larger problems.
We use other high-tech equipment such as radiosurgery tools that allow for bloodless, painless incisions.
