DIAGNOdent®

Fluoride in drinking water and toothpaste, while making teeth more decay-resistant, also make it harder for the dentist to detect cavities that start from microscopic defects in the tooth's outer enamel. DIAGNOdent is a laser instrument that scans for decay at the earliest stage …allowing Dr. Van Gordon to intervene painlessly before damage and discomfort set in.

Other Technologies

Other technologies employed in his office include digital x-rays that minimize film processing time, and reduce the level of radiation to which patients are exposed. And during restorative and cosmetic work, digital photography is used to match tooth color with scientific precision ...ensuring that each patient's smile looks perfect, right from day one.

Dr. Van Gordon believes that the superior care made possible by these state-of-the-art tools saves his patients money ...by permitting the early detection and painless treatment of problems, and the reduction or elimination of follow-up visits.
