April 2013 – It appears that many of our patients are concerned about radiation dosage. We appreciate and respect everyone’s concern but after doing a bit of researching, we are happy to inform everyone that dental xrays emit a reasonable amount of radiation compared to other sources in our everyday life. Dental xrays are a valuable tool for diagnosis, therefore we recommend routine xrays once a year as part of your checkup. We use digital xrays which has a reduced amount of radiation exposure. Here is some information that will help you understand radiations exposure.

|One year exposure to radiation from environment||3,000 microsieverts per year|
|Medical CT scan for abdomen||8,000 microsieverts|

New for 2011! We now offer implants and oral surgery procedures performed by an experienced Oral Surgeon. Meet our newest member of the team Dr. Jennifer Liu. Get to know her in the “About Us” section.
We now offer an anesthetic reversal agent called Oraverse. Patients that have important events to attend immediately after their dental appointment can now have their numbness reversed. In most cases patients return to their normal sensation within 1 hour after the reversal agent is given.
Our office now has the ability to do most restorations in a single visit including crowns! Our new CAD/CAM system scans your tooth and creates 3D images which are then used to accurately create a custom restoration by the computer. A crown or other restorations can be fabricated right here in our office in less than 1 hour while you wait. No more temporary crowns to deal with and waiting for 2 weeks before getting your permanent crown delivered. More about this as our site is being updated.
A word from our Doctor. (more on Liu in the about Dr. Alan Liu section)
Patient satisfaction is our number one goal. Throughout the years we have had great success with making our patients happy, If for any reason you are not treated with the most respect by any staff member or if your experience here was not the best experience you’ve had at a dental office, I like to hear about it. I will personally handle all concerns. All patients are treated like our family. Please feel free to contact me at my personal email at firstname.lastname@example.org
