The fear of the dentist is a common issue experienced by both children and adults. There are multiple reasons people have a fear of the dentist including the unpleasant smells and sounds and the possibility of experiencing pain or discomfort during their dental procedures.
Many people also avoid the dentist because their schedules are too busy to wait at the dentist or make multiple appointments for treatment.
At Lakepoint Dental Health and Aesthetics, we understand that the dentist office is not exactly the funnest, most enjoyable place our patients want to be.
As unpleasant as it is going to the dentist, regular office visits are crucial to maintaining superior oral and overall health.
Regardless of why you avoid or forget to schedule a dental appointment, our dentists and dental hygienists strive to make each patient’s visit to Lakepoint enjoyable.
State of the Art Technology
Dentistry has come a long way since its beginnings. Common dental procedures such as cleanings, filling cavities and extracting teeth are quick and have little to no pain or discomfort. A short 100 years earlier, these procedures were time consuming, expensive and dangerous.
Dental technology continues to advance to allow dentists to perform more and more restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. Many of the procedures done today are done even faster and with less discomfort thanks to improved dental technology.
At Lakepoint, we fully embrace the use of the latest, state-of-the-art dental technologies in order to give our patients a superior, more comfortable and convenient dental office experience.
Some of the technology we use in the office include:
- CEREC CAD/CAM technology
- digital radiography
- soft tissue lasers
- intraoral cameras
- surgical microscopes for root canal treatment
- 3D study models using a jaw simulator
Knowledgeable Dentists With Certifications
Our doctors Ernie Belen and Mary Ann Chang have certifications, education and experience in the fields of cosmetic dentistry, smile makeover, aesthetics, periodontics and endodontics. Both our dentists continually attend continuing education courses to learn about and implement new and improved ways to provide patients with quicker, better service.
Our dentists and dental hygienists have 17 years of combined dental school training, 37 years of combined practice experience, and over a thousand hours of continuing education courses.
Being armed with the best, most effective and efficient treatment operating procedures, we commit to providing each client as fast and pain-free dental experience as possible.
Empower Our Patients
Dentists are notorious for telling patients how the health of their teeth and gums should be. We realize that this type of condemnation contributes to why people dislike the dental office and put off getting the dental treatment they need.
At Lakepoint, our patients won’t find our dentists or hygienists wagging their fingers and telling patients how their oral hygiene can improve and how their teeth and gums should look. Instead, we entrust the care of the patient’s oral health to the patient themselves.
We feel patients will take better care of their teeth and gums when they are motivated and empowered to do it themselves. We educate patients on proper oral hygiene techniques as well as offer suggestions on how to improve their oral hygiene and prevent dental health issues from arising.
Patients who take great care of their teeth and gums will need less dental work done in the future. Patients with adequate at-home dental hygiene will only need to come in for a short routine dental examination and cleaning. All in all, patients will have less time in the dental chair and more time doing other things.
Our goal is to help our patients keep and maintain their natural teeth. We find this to be more doable and effective when we let our patients take the initiative and responsibility of their own oral hygiene and care.
The use of modern, state-of-the-art dental technology, having knowledgeable dentists and staff and empowering patients are three ways Lakepoint Dental reduces the pain and duration of our patients’ appointments.
Regardless of the reason, if you haven’t seen a dentist in a long time, you’re putting your oral health at risk. Contact us today to enjoy a fast dental visit with as little pain and discomfort as possible.
