Patient Forms, Map and Directions to Marietta Office

High quality dental care and patient comfort are our goals. We are committed to helping you achieve the best possible dental results in a comfortable and friendly environment.

We ask that our patients have a comprehensive dental and periodontal examination regularly, which includes a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. We use the findings from our examination to formulate a complete diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan for you.

Recommendations for treatment are explained at a consultation time set aside specifically for you. The consultation may take place at the initial appointment or may be scheduled as a separate appointment at your dentist's request. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the best possible information concerning your treatment options. Our time investment in patient education enables us to render the best possible outcome for your dental treatment and health.

Patient Protection
In the last few years, patient protection has become an issue of public concern.With the discovery of the AIDS (HIV) virus and the medical implications of Hepatitis B. It has become necessary for health care facilities to consistently apply state-of-the-art sterilization and disinfection techniques to provide patients with maximum protection.

In our office, your safety is our highest priority. Throughout the day, we continuously and thoroughly sterilize our equipment for your protection. Before and after each patient, all treatment surfaces (e.g., countertops, chair surfaces, lights, x-ray machines, and trays) are disinfected with the most effective and safest products available.

To ensure your safety, we follow a number of standard sterilization procedures with ail instruments and handpieces. First, instruments are brought into our sterilization room and placed in a cold sterilization solution prior to being placed in an ultrasonic cleaner to remove even microscopic debris. They are then rinsed thoroughly before being sterilized in an autoclave, which runs for 2o minutes and reaches a temperature of 400 47-5 degrees, thereby destroying all bacteria and viruses. Handpieces are first surface disinfected, then cleaned internally with compressed air and lubricant, and finally placed in an autoclave for sterilization.

Our autoclaves are monitored regularly in ensure they effectiveness and safety, according to OSHA regulations.

Staff members use masks, safety glasses, shields and new gloves for each patient.

All staff members are updated annually in proper patient protection procedures and have been vaccinated against the Hepatitis-B virus. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding patient protection and will give you a personal tour of our sterilization facility.
