The dental intra-oral video camera

This is probably one of the most useful tools that we have for assisting us when we are doing our New Patient Exams. It allows us to see back behind the teeth and it displays the picture on the 20 inch monitor in front of us, so that we can discuss it with you. Frequently, we will make a copy of the picture for either before and after pictures, or for sending to insurance companies to assist in claims processing.

The overhead light system

This may not be as high-tech as the other equipment, however, we have found that by utilizing special “full-spectrum” light bulbs in our operatories, we are better able to offer more accurate color matching for crowns and composite fillings than if we only used fluorescent bulbs (which are about one-third the cost). We have been using this system for over twelve years and is worth it to us to allow you to have the better aesthetic result that can be achieved from doing this.
