Guided Tour

Our practice participates with most dental insurance plans.

Over the past several years there has been a great deal of concern over safety in the dental office. In our office we take meticulous care to protect our patients.

All of our instruments, including dental drills , are ultrasonically cleansed and sterilized after each use with an autoclave (steam sterilizer). Our autoclave is tested on a regular basis by the oral pathology department of Emory University to insure its effectiveness. Parts of the dental treatment room which cannot be placed in a sterilizing machine, such as the chair, light, x-ray machine, and counter tops, are freshly covered for each patient with a plastic barrier after disinfection with a solution approved by the American Dental Association. Our staff always use: masks, gloves, and eye wear as an added precaution.

You and your family should feel comfortable with the safety techniques employed at your dentist's office. We would be happy to review with you our office protocol for infection control.

We hope that you have enjoyed this brief tour of our web site. There are other areas of our site that you may want to visit such as our What's New Page, or learn how you can perform a Home Oral Cancer Screening....a five minute exam which can save your life.

...and don't forget to sign our guestbook.
