COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
Welcome to Our Longwood Dental Office
This is where we welcome our guests into our office. The combination of colors along with the flooring make a warm, soothing environment for all to enjoy.

Our Operative Rooms
We begin our comprehensive new patient exams here to give our patients a chance to share with us a little bit about their past medical and dental history, as well as any goals or concerns they have about their smiles. We also discuss treatment plans here when we review the findings of our examination.
We have two operatories for hygiene, two for our dentists, and one for emergencies. All have LCD flat screen monitors that swivel and pivot for easy viewing whether you’re upright or laying back. You may watch cable TV, an educational video, see images of your teeth, look at your x-rays, or watch a movie. The choice is up to you! Our chairs are covered with “ultra-leather”, which is SO soft! All of our operatories have solid Cambria Quartz countertops. Unlike granite, which is porous, this Italian quartz will not absorb anything. In addition, all of our operatories are arrayed around the outside of the building with large windows so you can enjoy the view.

X-ray Scan Station with Digital Panoramic X-ray machine
All of our X-rays are digital, which means 80-90% less radiation exposure for you. We don’t have a dark room! Your films are scanned by a laser and digitized at this workstation. We have XM Satellite radio for your convenience, along with an assortment of children’s video’s for those who would like to see them. To the left you can see down the hallway past central sterilization, and beside the panoramic x-ray machine you can see our CEREC 3D Cad/Cam acquisition unit.
Like the operatories, we have Cambria Quartz countertops in our central sterilization area. They’re beautiful, durable, non-porous, and easy to clean and disinfect. The little machine on the countertop just to the right of our autoclave is aSterilox unit. It creates a solution we add to our water lines to kill all microbes, and most importantly, their BIOFILMS! There are literally hundreds of miles of little rubber tubes/hoses in the average dental office. Even with distilled water, biofilms form, making the water coming out of the dental units less pure than tap water UNLESS you have a Sterilox. One less thing our patients have to worry about!
In-House Dental Laboratory
This is where the doctor glazes and custom characterizes the shade of our in-house porcelain restorations. The color of the paint on the walls is designed to relax the retina and improve color acuity when matching shades. In addition, the lights are all color corrected, full spectrum lights for more accuracy.
