What Sets Us Apart?

At Waterstone Family Dentistry, we are committed to staying abreast of new equipment and technology that can enhance the patient experience and help us provide high quality, comfortable care.

Digital X-Rays

The digital X Rays taken at our office have several benefits over traditional film-based X Rays. These benefits include:

  • Less radiation
  • Faster imaging
  • High quality images that can be enlarged for easy interpretation and analysis
  • Easy transfer via email to a specialist
  • Environment friendly; there are no chemicals and no processing of X Rays in a dark room

Laser Dentistry

We use a soft tissue dental laser to deliver great dental care to our patients. With the laser, we can perform certain procedures with little to no anesthesia, less bleeding and faster healing. The dental laser can:

  • Trim overgrown gum tissue
  • Remove gum tissue over an implant, i.e., uncover an implant
  • Expose a wisdom tooth that is covered by soft tissue. This allows us to remove the tooth with less bleeding as no scalpel or blade is needed to uncover the tooth
  • Treat canker sores in the office so that not only can you get pain relief, but your treatment can take place the same day
  • Remove diseased tissue during deep cleaning
  • Relax sore, tight facial muscles and provide relief to overworked, inflamed jaw joints

Intraoral Cameras

We use a camera that resembles a hand-held want to take color images of your teeth, your gums, and any dental condition that we find. You can see exactly what we see in your mouth. Because a picture speaks a thousand words, the camera images help us to explain any concerns that we have about your dental health. We are also able to send the images to a specialist easily and quickly. And we can send the photos to the dental laboratory to help with color matching of a crown.

Emergency Dental Care

A toothache can often feel like the worst possible pain. We understand the importance of treating dental pain and tooth abscesses in a timely manner so that you can eat and sleep without discomfort and can resume your daily routine activities. Our office can accommodate you and your family members when you have a dental emergency. We reserve appointment slots in our schedule each day that we are open, to help those in pain get same day assessments and care.

Our main phone number also serves as our emergency contact number. During evenings and weekends, any voice messages left at our office are forwarded directly to Dr. Collier. So, rest assured that you can still contact us even when we are closed.

Second Opinions

Our office is happy to provide a second opinion about any treatment recommendations made to you for which you have hesitations or concerns. We will need a copy of the X Rays taken at the time of your exam. It never hurts to have a second set of eyes to evaluate your dental condition. If you are asking yourself “Do I really need all of this treatment?” call us today so we can help answer that question and any others that you may have.
