Our office employs many types of new technology. These technologies benefit the patient by offering improved diagnosis and care.
iTero® 3D Scanner
The use of the iTero scanner allows the orthodontist to take digital impressions of the patients teeth. Patients will have a comfortable, impression-free experience. Enjoy the benefits of a high-tech, chairside experience without the mess and gagging associated with traditional impressions. Using the scanner allows us to be more efficient and can reduce the number of visits to the office, saving you time.

365 3D Printer & 3Shape Scanner
The 365 3D Printer and 3Shape Scanner allow for the customization of clear aligners and bracket placement virtually on a computer resulting in faster treatment time for our valued patients.
Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays. The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment. Digital x-rays are instant, so there is no longer a need to develop the film. Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care. It’s also a very green technology. By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste, digital x-rays are better for both the patient and the environment!
Ultra Quiet Electric Handpieces
These handpieces provide less vibration and noise than traditional dental drills. Not only are they quieter, but also more efficient in tooth preparation making dental procedures shorter and more manageable.
Digital Intraoral Cameras
An intraoral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and orthodontist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time. With an intraoral camera, patients are able to better understand what is happening and review the status of their oral health.
These headphones are for patient use during any dental procedure. Patients can listen to their favorite music, movie, or television show without having to hear all of the surrounding noise going on as the dental work is being performed.
Digital Flat Screen Monitors
These television monitors are found above every patient chair. Patients can watch a movie or TV show. Patients can also view their dental x-rays when speaking to the orthodontist about the findings for a better understanding of their oral health.
Our office offers free Wi-Fi for our patients use while visiting our office.
iPads® for Patient Use
Our office provides iPads® for patients to use while in the office receiving treatment. They can play a game or watch a favorite TV show or movie.
Roku® and Movie Selections
We also have Roku® units available for each chair, providing each patient the opportunity to select their own movie or TV show to enjoy during treatment. We also offer phone charging stations with sterilization.
