Painless Anesthesia with The Wand®

The WandYou do not have to be a dental phobic to appreciate this revolutionary device.  The Wand® uses a microprocessor to deliver dental anesthetic at a slow enough rate that most people do not notice discomfort.  Dr. Collins introduced “The Wand” to our patients over ten years ago. The latest version of this device offers improvements in computer controlled local anesthetic delivery, with a unique feedback mechanism to limit pressure. Patients say “It’s the best shot I ever had”. We also improve comfort by using anesthetic with neutral pH, compared to acid pH that stings.

We now offer advanced oral cancer screening with the ViziLite Plus system, where we use a simple mouth rinse then exam with a special light in an effort to identify cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions earlier. 

By the way, we welcome phobics.  Colonel Sanders isn’t the only one who knows how to “do chicken right”!

Dentistry under ObamaCare - Rx for Uncertainty

Many Americans are not aware that Obamacare, formally known as the “Affordable Care Act”, requires medical insurance for everyone on January 1, 2014. Unfortunately, no one really understands what Obamacare is, and there is great confusion about the ultimate effects of the law. Some warn that medical insurance premiums will increase dramatically, causing “rate shock”. Some of our patients have already reported loss of dental benefits, downgrades for annual maximums, or loss of all health care benefits as employers scramble to make all employees part time. Given the uncertainty about benefits in general, I am urging those who know they need treatment to use your benefits as soon as possible, while you still have them.
