All Smiles Dental Care has an enthusiastic and well-trained team working with the dentist. There are two business administrators to assist in booking appointments, submitting dental claims, and reviewing treatment. They will likely be your first contact at our office and will immediately make you feel welcome. Two hygienists are responsible for looking after your preventive needs. They are thorough, gentle and strive to develop a home care regimen to make your dental visits easier. Finally, the dentist has two assistants to make you comfortable and ensure that procedures run smoothly and efficiently.
There is more and more evidence that your oral health is linked to your overall health. Research is continually being done in this area. It is vital that we consider this when developing an individual treatment plan. Sometimes an underlying medical condition can affect periodontal (gum) disease or dental caries (cavities). At each exam appointment, the dentist will perform an oral cancer screening. VELscope Vx offers an enhanced intra-oral examination of the soft tissues of your mouth (see the New Technology tab for more information). It is recommended to have a VELscope exam done yearly. Another important part of detecting disease includes the collection of radiographs or x-rays specific to each patient. All Smiles Dental Care has digital x-ray technology. There are many advantages to this. The most important is the significant decrease in radiation compared to traditional x-rays. The ability to lighten or darken the image or even sharpen it assists in diagnosis. It also makes it easier to communicate with specialists or dental plans if the need arises. Dental radiographs are a simple, safe way to detect problems when they are small and clinically imperceptible. In most cases, it makes correction easier and less expensive. The All Smiles Dental Care team is focussed on the prevention of problems before they start.
