Patient Education

We feel patient education is very important. Our goal is that you are completely informed concerning your condition and any treatment that will be performed. We encourage you to voice any questions you may have.

Patient Safety

We adhere to the highest professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our staff regularly attend safety seminars and are quite knowledgeable on the latest techniques.

Sterilization

We know that preventing the spread of infectious diseases such as AIDS, herpes, hepatitis and even the cold virus is critical. We use extensive sterilization procedures, going well beyond the guidelines recommended by the American Dental Association and Centers for Disease Control.

We use barrier techniques such as disposable masks and gloves and replace them with every new patient. Each piece of fixed operatory equipment is wiped-down with antibacterial solution prior to every clinical procedure. Sterile water delivery systems are utilized. We use autoclave sterilization for all instruments prior to dental examination and treatment. You can be assured that our staff have been specifically trained on sterilization procedures and their importance.

Pre-medication

Patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. valvular heart conditions and artificial joints) may be asked to pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to certain treatments. We do this with your safety in mind. Please inform us if you have a condition that might require pre-medication.

Patient Comfort

We go to extraordinary lengths to ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible during dental procedures. 

To make

Special Equipment

We strive to stay on the leading edge of dentistry techniques and equipment. In order to do this, we take a great deal of continuing education. We also utilize advanced equipment in our office. This includes:

Advanced Sleep Dentistry

Dr. Sinclair is an expert in the treatment of sleep apnea. This disorder causes sleep loss, low blood oxygen, and potential medical complications and oftentimes can be treated effectively with a dental appliance.

Invisalign Orthodontics

Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth without the use of metal braces. Dr. Sinclair is a certified Invisalign practitioner.

Low Radiation Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Rays are taken with very low radiation. They require less time to process than traditional X-Rays, and can be digitally enhanced or enlarged to aid the dentist in treatment planning.

Low Radiation Panoramic Radiography

Panoramic Radiography (Panarex) is an advanced full-mouth x-ray that allows a full “panoramic” view of your teeth.
