A Little More About Our Practice…
A Clean & Safe Office
Do you ever worry about cleanliness in dental offices? We go above and beyond for you, exceeding the American Dental Association (ADA) and OSHA recommended standards for a clean and safe practice. We have a dedicated area with state-of-the-art sterilization technology, where every instrument is disinfected, and made ready before your visit. We also sanitize each room between patients, and we use a closed water system (rather than everyday tap water). We worry about the cleanliness of our office so you’ll never have to!
Education & Credentials
Our team at Balcones Family Dental is fully trained, skilled, and certified to provide you with the expertise you are looking for. We fulfill our responsibility to continuing education by attending dental conventions, seminars, and lectures and keeping up-to-date on the latest dental technologies and procedures. We are always searching for ways to better serve you and your family as patients.
Information & Accommodations
We empower you to make smart choices for your oral health and smile enhancements through information and thorough consultation, easy and accommodating financing, and comfortable facilities and care. We also make sure that we are fully informed about your medical history, current medications, and other factors that might affect your dental health and treatment.
A Kid Friendly Office
Children typically become receptive to dental care and cooperative for routine dental visits around age 3 or 4, but parents should start inspecting their children’s mouth as early as they get teeth. Establish good oral health habits by making teeth brushing fun for your child! Play brushing games using a flashlight to shine in your child’s mouth, tickle them to make them laugh and open wide, or consider a rewards system for teeth brushing. Be as regular as you can so your child not only gets used to teeth brushing but also grows to understand that it is important.
When children are old enough for a dental visit, we start them out with a “happy visit” at our office. The main purpose of this visit is for children to get comfortable with us and the office environment, and we will do as much or as little as they will allow so the experience is positive and nothing is forced. We have found that by doing this, children will soon let us take x-rays, clean their teeth, and perform an examination of their entire mouth. This enables us to detect cavities and possible orthodontic needs early, which in turn makes more conservative and cost-efficient treatment possible. We perform early cavity detection in our office with laser-assisted decay detection technology called Diagnodent®. See our Services page for more info!
