3D Computerized Digital Intra-oral Impression Scanning

I use the state-of-the-art, most advanced, 3Shape Trios digital scanner. This eliminates the need for unpleasant traditional gooey impressions—no more messy goop in your mouth! With our computerized digital 3D scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed, 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is our digital scan far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it’s faster and provides images that are more precise. We definitely make a great first impression.

With this computerized model of your mouth we can computer design your teeth restorations and orthodontic aligners and 3D print them out. Totally awesome!!!

Teeth whitening

Professional results—in about an hour

For a brighter, whiter smile I offer an in office activated whitening treatment that offers results in 1 hour.  It’s ideal for people who want instant whitening gratification, or those who have that special event coming up that requires a bright, white smile.

  • The tooth whitening gel contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride), which helps maintain the health of enamel throughout the whitening process.
  • Chemically activated, so no hot, uncomfortable light is needed
  • Dentist-applied treatment
  • Provides dramatic results in one hour

Fellow, Academy of General Dentistry

 fellow_academy_general_dentistry

In Virginia we have 6,500 dentist, of which 200 of us are Fellows of The Academy of General Dentistry.

What does that mean for you and your family?

Earning Fellowship takes dedication to dental continuing education (CE) beyond graduation. Only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Fellows. When you see a dentist with FAGD after their name, you can rest assured that they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. AGD Fellows practice these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times a year — not every dentist does this.

To become an AGD Fellow, a dentist must:

  • Complete over 500 credit hours of CE.
  • Earn 350 of those 500 credits in live courses.
  • Pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams.
