In September of 2012 we decided to make a decision in our office to not only update the look, but to also update and expand the scope of things we can offer our patients in our practice. I started to place dental implants in 2001, but my goal was to be able to offer dental implants to my patients using the most up to date methods, which meant investing in 3D cone beam technology. In November of that same year we purchased the Sirona XG3D to allow us to be able to see the jaw in 3 dimensions and to combine that technology with the CAD/CAM digital impression technology that we have been using in our practice since I took over in 2007. We can now digitally see exactly how much bone you have, show you exactly where we want to place that implant and without any conventional impressions we can order a guide to allow us to place the implant right where we planned.
I then decided that it was important to expand my knowledge of dental implants so I sign up for a dental implant continuum that took 4 months and 100 hours to complete. I’m proud to say that graduation was this past Sunday, June 1st. I will be taking this education further by attending a live patient course In January 2015 to learn even more complex implant procedures. The entire team came down to the course this past weekend (except for Connie who was under the weather) and are very excited to share all the knowledge we have learned about how dental implants can improve your dental health. We look forward to staying on the cutting edge of dentistry and technology to continue to offer you the best dental care possible while continuing to maintain our small family feel. We cherish your continued support and look forward to sharing this new knowledge with you! Click here to find out if implants are right for you.
