Welcome to our beach office. We strive to make your visits with us as comfortable as possible. We also strive to provide our patients with the best, safest and most comprehensive care available in dentistry today without the merchantile hype. Dr. Dunavant was the infection control officer at 21st Dental Company, Kaneoke Hawaii when the HIV issue became prevalent. He designed the infection control protocol and wrote the manual for the new facility there. So, of course, we clean and disinfect all surfaces and sterilize all instruments between each patient. Notice that our operatory room counter tops are not cluttered with containers and equipment that are stored there between patients.
We have computer terminals in each operatory that allow us to digitize diagnostic information and have it readily available. We have been utilizing digital radiography since 1998 which requires 50-75% less radiation exposure than conventional film and is incredibly cleaner and more diagnostic. We utilize digital photography and charting for treatment planning, including dentofacial cosmetic analysis. We utilize a digital photoscope which greatly magnifies an individual tooth under focused illumination to reveal cracks in teeth that aren’t detectable with x-rays. The insurance companies appreciate the digital information we are able to email to them in support of our treatment claims.
We utilize interactive digital patient education modules during treatment plan presentations to take the mystery and fear out of recommended procedures by seeing them illustrated and explained in full motion video.
We utilize CEREC® CAD-CAM technology, when indicated, in fabricating single-visit all-ceramic crowns and onlays. We utilize Zoom®, light enhanced teeth whitening technology as well as our Natural and Quantum™ techniques.
All you may need to bring is your ipod with your favorite music and ear plugs.
