Patient Education

We find that patients are more comfortable when they know what to expect on each step of a proposed treatment. As approximately 65% of all learning is visual, we offer a three-dimensional animated presentation of all major periodontal and dental implant procedures. This computerized presentation (known as Caesy) has become a valuable aid in patient education.

Our goal is that you are completely informed concerning your condition and any treatment that will be performed.

Patient Safety

We adhere to the highest professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our staff regularly attend safety seminars and are quite knowledgeable on the latest techniques.

Sterilization

We know that preventing the spread of infectious disease is critical. We use extensive sterilization procedures, carefully following the guidelines recommended by The American Dental Association and the Centers for Disease Control.

Pre-medication

Patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. valvular heart conditions and artificial joints) may need to pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to certain treatments. We do this with your safety in mind. Please inform us if you have a condition that might require pre-medication.

Patient Comfort

We go to extraordinary lengths to ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible during dental procedures. 

Special Equipment

We strive to stay on the leading edge of dentistry techniques and equipment. In order to do this, we take a great deal of continuing education. We also utilize advanced equipment in our office. This includes:

Advanced Dental Implant Restoration

Dental Implants are a new alternative in tooth replacement.  Dr. Bouressa has extensive experience in creating functional and aesthetic replacements for lost teeth.

Cosmetic Whitening

We offer various procedures to whiten and brighten your smile.  For more information please see our dental whitening page.

Low Radiation Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Rays are taken with very low radiation. They require less time to process than traditional X-Rays, and can be digitally enhanced or enlarged to aid the dentist in treatment planning.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin durable shells that can be used to correct crooked, stained or chipped teeth.  Dr. Bouressa is an expert in this and other aesthetic dentistry procedures.
