The Experience – Open Wide and Say Spaaaaaah!

We strive to give our patients an experience beyond anything they’ve encountered in a dental office. One of the ways we do this is by delivering excellence in a comfortable, relaxing environment. Our reception area offers complimentary premium bottled drinking water and fresh flowers.

Our entire dental care team is dedicated to providing you with our "Five-Star" service. Patients can choose from such relaxation amenities as heat and massage integrated into the dental chair, a warm aromatherapy wrap for the neck, warm soulage aromatherapy mitts for the hands and feet, a heated or chilled herbal eye pillow, and a warm chenille blanket. A spa bolster will be placed under your knees for additional comfort, to take stress off your lower back. “New-release” DVD’s, cable TV, or Apple TV, with wireless headphones and overhead televisions are available during your treatment, or you may choose to play X-Box games, or sleep during your appointment. Patients are given a steamed, moist towlette after treatment, a personal lip balm, and a premium bottled drinking water to go.

Each member of our team works together to meet all the dental needs of our patients in a gentle, professional, and caring manner. Each of us will make every effort to see that your visit is an exceptional experience. We take great pride in our knowledge and experience, and are committed to continuing education focused on state-of-the-art, minimally invasive dentistry.

Signature Smiles is not just a dental office- it’s as one patient exclaimed "a resort for your mouth!"

A Typical First Visit
A Thorough Dental Examination.
We believe a comprehensive first exam is the best way to begin the process of obtaining a healthy, beautiful smile. We take the necessary time to fully and thoroughly evaluate your present dental condition. Our goal is to give our patients the necessary information and education so that they may enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile for years to come. Here is what to expect.

When you arrive, one of our patient coordinators will greet you and take time to answer any questions you may have on your initial new patient consent forms, office policies, and privacy policies. We’ll spend some time getting to know you and your expectations. You'll meet some of the other members of our team, be given a private tour of the dental spa, see our in-house CEREC dental lab, and view some of our cutting edge dental technologies. We continue with a one-on-one discussion covering your past dental history and present concerns. After that, your treatment consultant will then guide you through the rest of the process.
1. We will take any necessary dental x-rays with digital radiography (which uses 90% less radiation that traditional x-rays).
2. We will perform a full-mouth periodontal probing to determine if you have any signs of gum disease. We will also create a chart of all your teeth and the restorations presently in place and note areas of disease, bleeding, or other problems noted.
3. We will perform an oral cancer screening with VELscope, checking the tongue, cheeks and surrounding soft tissues
4. We will use Intraoral Television Imaging, which is used as a tool which allows us to take a tour of your mouth through digital full color pictures. This lets you view the insides of your own mouth and shows you tooth by tooth what “WE” see.
5. Dr. Nelson will perform a complete cavity check tooth-by-tooth and use our laser for cavity detection when necessary.
6. Dr. Nelson will treatment plan your diagnosed dental wants and needs, and spend time with you in a personal consultation to discuss any questions or concerns you might have.
7. We will present the treatment plan to you with the total cost of your treatment.
8. We will assist with insurance estimations and dental financing if necessary.

We feel that dentistry is about communication, and communication is the most indispensable tool of all. You will be informed of the necessary steps needed to restore your mouth back to it’s original health and beauty. We are happy to assist you with dental financing and a payment plan if necessary.
