We use a variety of state-of-the-art technology including a Digital X-ray System, DIAGNOdent™ (a revolutionary way to detect and find cavities), an Automatic Vital Sign Monitoring System, and a WaterLase® MD™ (an alternative method to the dental drill).
Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays. The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment. Digital x-rays are instant, so there is no longer a need to develop the film. Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care. It’s also a very green technology. By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste, digital x-rays are better for both the patient and the environment!
Laser Caries Detection by DIAGNODent™
With this latest technology, a laser light detects cavities that are not yet visible to the naked eye. This technology enables dentists to practice minimally invasive dentistry by providing a better possibility of diagnosing this disease at an early stage.
WaterLase® MD™ is an alternative method to the traditional dental drill. Traditional dental drills work with friction and vibration, which causes heat and can cause pain for the patient. WaterLase® MD™ employs a unique combination of laser wavelengths and water to achieve the same results as traditional drills, but without the heat and pressure that can trigger pain.
Ultra Quiet Electric Handpieces
These handpieces provide less vibration and noise than traditional dental drills. They are quieter and more efficient in tooth preparation, making dental procedures shorter and more manageable.
Automatic Vital Signs Monitoring System
Our office uses an automatic vital signs monitoring system that ensures patient safety while using sedation dentistry. Using this advanced technology allows our staff to accurately monitor our patients’ vital signs while focusing on the wellbeing of the patient.
For your information and your child’s safety, DPD regularly tests the water at EVERY exam table to assure uncontaminated water for your child.
Soft Tissue Lasers
Soft tissue lasers are used for periodontal (gum) surgeries. These lasers are more efficient, cause less discomfort, promote a faster healing time, and decrease the risk of infection, providing a better outcome.
Digital Flat Screen Monitors
These television monitors are found next to every patient chair. Patients can watch a movie or TV show. Patients can also view their dental x-rays when speaking to the doctor about the findings for a better understanding of their oral health.
