E4D Dentist

In 2012, I began to use E4D Technology to provide my patients with same day ceramic restorations. No more messy impression materials or hassle with annoying temporaries.

E4D Technology offers my patients the opportunity to have a metal-free restoration designed, fabricated and delivered in a single appointment. I am able to take a scan of your tooth with a special laser camera that safely captures the anatomy of the prepared tooth and renders it as a 3-dimensional image. There is no radiation, and no impression.

I then customize your crown, inlay or onlay using your digital "virtual impression" and 3D imaging software while you relax with a magazine or watch TV. The entire process from start to finish should take under two hours. If you prefer, you may leave the office with a temporary and return later in the day, or later in the week. It is up to you.

After the final design, the E4D milling system employs CAD/CAM technology to mill your restoration from a high-strength, metal-free, ceramic or composite block in a shade to match the color of the rest of your teeth.

Once seated in place, your restoration is complete - no second visit required! It is truly incredible technology, and it has changed everything about getting your tooth crowned. Metal free crowns are beautiful and durable. This is the ultimate in dental technology today.

Quiet Electric Motor Driven Dental Handpieces by Kavo

Kavo is the leader in dental handpiece technology. Over the years I've heard so many patients say..."I really don't like the sound of the drill, can't they do something about that?" Here it is. An electric drill that operates much quieter and much more smoothly that the traditional air-turbine drill that makes you cringe when you hear it. It is a dramatic improvement.

Helios 3000 Patient Lights

These lights provide amazing light, yet they don't shine in your eyes. They are LED, so they remain cool as well. This is optimal for shade matching anterior restorations.

Statim Sterilizer

This modern autoclave by SciCan is capable of completely sterilizing dental instruments in 8 minutes.

The Statim 2000 S-cycle cassette autoclave is the fastest benchtop sterilizer available.This will optimize clinical time management and improve efficiency... Everyone likes an efficient visit.

All of my handpieces (drills) are sterilized by the SciCan Statim.

iLase

iLase - Biolase Comfortpulse Dental TechnologyThe iLase™ is awesome. It features Biolase's unique ComfortPulse™ mode of operation. It allows me to deliver laser energy in very short pulses.

The result is reduced discomfort and a reduced need for anesthetic. It is extremely easy to use and helps create very esthetic crowns and veneers.

Ergonomic Dental Chairs by Pelton and Crane

After studying what the leading manufacturers had to offer, I selected beautiful black leather chairs by Pelton and Crane... the undisputed leader in dental chair design. Aside from being gorgeous, these made-in-the-USA dental chairs actually massage the patient during treatment.

Digital X-Rays

In 2007 my entire x-ray system was upgraded to the latest digital equipment and software. Each operatory has it's own computer and flat screen monitor.

Today, X-rays are no longer taken using large AC x-ray cones and film. Now I use low power, smaller DC units and digital x-ray sensors. There are many benefits, including dramatically lower radiation requirements, and large clear images that both the patient and I can look at.

VELscope

The VELscope is an easy to use instrument that can see oral cancer lesions before they are visible to the naked eye. Every patient is examined with this instrument at every check up.

It only takes a few minutes and it's totally painless, because the only thing that touches you is a beam of light. There will be no additional charge because I don't want anyone saying "No thanks"...it's that important. Early detection can save your life.

VELscope is a revolutionary hand-held device that provides dentists and hygienists with an easy-to-use adjunctive mucosal examination system for the early detection of abnormal tissue. It is based on the direct visualization of tissue fluorescence and the changes in fluorescence that occur when abnormalities are present.

VELscope is the only non-invasive adjunctive device clinically proven to help discover occult oral disease.

Unfortunately, only 35% of oral cancer cases are diagnosed in the early stages
. Fortunately, the VELscope System can help detect oral mucosal abnormalities that may not be visible or apparent to the naked eye, such as oral cancer or pre-malignant dysplasia.

The Rembrandt Saphire Light

This powerful ultra-violet light bonds small fillings in 3 seconds and large fillings in 5 seconds. This is especially handy when a patient requires multiple fillings as the time required to complete this procedure is short.

Dento-Surg™ Radiolase© II - Radiosurgical Device

This instrument is used to reshape an uneven gum line. It uses high frequency radio waves to quickly contour gum tissue. This is helpful during a "smile makeover" so that new laminates and crowns appear even and straight.

Intra Oral Camera

The intra-oral camera is about the size of a small flashlight. It can take high resolution photographs of your teeth and display them on the monitor in full color. Many patients are amazed when they see things that they have never seen before, namely their back teeth!

The camera is very helpful during an examination because the patient will have a complete understanding of the condition of his or her dentition...because they can see it with their own eyes.
