Since 1997 we have maintained essentially the
entire patient chart electronically. This provides
numerous efficiencies, not to mention it is more secure and environmentally friendly than paper. Patients can access
encrypted basic account & appointment information online.
It is our responsibility for a patient to thoroughly understand their health and options. In each operatory, there is a patient monitor, allowing better education through illustrations, x-rays, and fiber-optic
photos of your mouth. It also provides a bit of entertainment to help
make the best of your experience.
Since January, 2000 we have taken x-rays with
high-resolution digital sensors instead of film. This
approach provides instant developing, and reduces radiation
exposure by 80%. This is also environmentally sound since there
is nothing disposable (i.e. chemicals or lead).
