Digital X-rays:  80% Less Radiation Exposure compared to traditional film, eliminated the use of hazardous fixing / processing agents used with traditional film.

Water-less Vacuum System: Traditional water driven vacuum systems can use up to 200,000 gallons of water per year.  Our system uses no oil or additional water.

Digital Charting:  Significantly reduced paper waste.  Referrals and X-rays are stored electronically and can be sent over email.

Bio-compatible Materials:  Utilization of ceramics and composites to replace tooth structure in lieu of amalgam.   Healthier, happier, and more aesthetically pleasing smiles.  Restorations are also repairable in many cases.

Biodegradable Tooth Brushes: Bamboo biodegradable toothbrushes.

Cerec:   Allows fabrication of crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays on-site.  Reduced shipping of cases to Dental Laboratories.   Reduced waste (impression material decreased).  Reduced travel for patients as most cases can be completed in one visit.
