Dr. Green employs the best technology available to ensure that we provide our patients with exceptional dental care. Advanced 3-D imaging allows complete visualization of the mouth, airway, and jaw joints to ensure that we are providing the highest level of diagnostics possible.
The practice also utilizes:
- Computerized jaw tracking,
- Facial muscle electromyography,
- Digital bite force analysis to see if the jaw joints, facial muscles and teeth are all working in harmony together.
- Jyssica the hygienist is trained in the use of piezoelectric scalers which provides an incredibly comfortable cleaning with little to no “scraping” of your teeth.
“No patient or guest should feel shame about their oral health or feel pressured into treatment” says Dr. Green. She will tell you what she sees, give you options for treatment, and then let you decide what is best for you in an honest, caring and respectful manner. Going to the dentist can be stressful, the Smile Doctor team strives to minimize that as much as possible.
The Springfield Smile Doctor dental practice is locally owned and operated and uses only the best materials, laboratories, and dental technology. “We would not put anything in a patient’s mouth that we would not want in our own mouths” says Dr. Green. “We believe all treatment should be driven and guided for the benefit of you and your oral health.”
Patients are treated as part of the dental family. Dr. Green and the smile team will take the time to get to know patients and their expectations in order to make sure you meet your oral health goals and have the best possible experience. They understand that patients’ time is valuable.
