Technology is redefining modern dentistry. New techniques and treatments make your visits faster, easier, more comfortable, and better for the world around us. The latest advances allow for earlier, less-invasive treatment, which produce faster healing and greater precision during dental procedures. In addition, our office is all digital, increasing our efficiency so you can get on with your day.
Digital X-rays generate 75% less radiation than conventional X-rays! Not only are you exposed to less radiation, but images are instantly available, and produce no chemical waste. Using a digital sensor, we can take an image of your mouth and download it into our computer, where it is immediately available to view with you. Good for you, good for us, and good for the environment!
Dr. McCormick believes in a united approach to dental care. One of the ways he achieves this is through the use of a high-tech intra-oral camera. This miniature video camera delivers a close-up image of the interior of your mouth direct to our computer screen. Now you can see what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine, making you an active participant in each dental decision. You'll be amazed by what you see!
The STA System™ utilizing The Wand™ is the first computer-controlled local anesthetic system. Rather than using an old-fashioned syringe that can be scary and painful during injections, Dr. McCormick uses an anesthetic pump that gives him better control during the numbing process and results in a more comfortable or even painless experience for most patients. The technology has been clinically proven to be able to provide a pain-free injection. Additionally, the Wand dispenses a more accurate and safer delivery of anesthesia. You no longer have to be fearful or anxious about the traditional dental needle when you visit our office!
