It was October 3, 1988 that Cindi and I first opened the doors of Implant and General Dentistry of Vermont at our current location. The journey has been profound and exciting, as we have continued to improve oral health services over the past 25 years.
We have never lost our orientation for oral disease prevention and the focus on comfort and function. However, major improvements in dental materials, procedures and technology have evolved to satisfy the public’s desire for re-creation of the “natural” state, even when presenting conditions are quite severe! And, we have seen a growing number of our patients wanting appearance related services that allows them to recapture their youth.
Bleaching, tooth colored ceramic restorations, dental implant supported replacement teeth are but a few expanding areas meeting those life long esthetic needs.
A technological “revolution”, including digital medical records, photography and 3D x-ray imaging, electronic communication, lasers and CEREC CAD/CAM technology has helped us to be more exacting, effective and efficient “outwardly” without question. Patients are “wowed” by the process and love the excellent results new technology creates!
In 2009 , we completely renovated the office. Over the past year we have improved our team approach with the help of Laurie Lernihan and Leslie Doenges. Ultimately it is the quality of our relationships that eventually produces positive outcomes and long lasting health.
For our team, technological advances have become a portal for us to relate more deeply with our patients. We are better able to show, inform and help them envision their preferred future. Consequently, they have a better understanding of their clinical conditions, treatment options and can make more personally relevant decisions surrounding their oral health.
The evolution over the years has been a delight for us and for those we serve! We see it in their eyes, in their smiles, by their compliments, and in their enthusiasm when they refer family and friends!
We are thankful for the opportunity to serve, and reaffirm our pledge to continue providing the best that the dental profession has to offer here at Implant and General Dentistry of Vermont!
Yours in Health…
