We Are Pleased to Announce Digital Smile Design!

At Rolling Oaks Dental, we understand that making the decision to address the issues you are unhappy with when you smile can be a difficult one. If you are unhappy with your smile, but you don’t know exactly what to do to accomplish the results you dream of, you probably have questions. Your smile makes a big, first impression when meeting new people, and if you’re not happy with how you look, your self-esteem can be affected as well. Some people have resigned themselves to think that they need to live with the smile they have, because of fear, the unknown of how to achieve a healthy and beautiful smile, and because of finances. How will you afford it? Will it be worth it, and will you be happy with the results? With these questions in mind, we have added some amazing options to help you answer these questions, AND actually see the results before you even start your smile goal journey. We have an insurance coordinator on staff to check your benefits, and we offer financing options! 

Many people have dental phobia or an intense fear of going to the dentist, which prevents them from seeking care. Click here for some tips on overcoming dental phobia. Also, we will do everything possible to make sure your visit with us is painless and relaxing. We offer a free consultation and you can discuss any apprehension you have with Dr. Dougherty and he can help to alleviate your fears. Oftentimes, our patients tell us that the fear of going to the dentist was actually much worse than coming in to see us! Also, we recommend that you check out our google reviews. We have a 4.9 rating out of 5.0 based on 226 reviews, which will hopefully alleviate your fear as well! 

Introducing Digital Smile Design!

Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a wonderful new treatment planning protocol, that will allow us to show you what your smile could look like BEFORE you start your restoration process. Imagine, taking the guesswork out of what your preferred smile will look like in just moments!

We will begin by taking simple photos of you smiling.  Next, we will use the DSD technology to create a “Before and After” photo to simulate the perfect smile for you. It is a simple process to show you what is possible after your work will be done! And that’s not even the best part!  Once your simulated photo is prepared, you will be able to discuss with Dr. Dougherty, in detail, what you like, don’t like, and what improvements you would like to see to create YOUR perfect smile. Digital Smile Design

Additionally, Rolling Oaks Dental offers a FREE, NO-OBLIGATION CONSULTATION for anyone interested in cosmetic and restorative dentistry and Invisalign, so that you can see what your potential smile will look like after treatment. 

Just think, ANY process you have in mind to help create your perfect smile is included in this amazing technology:

Digital Imaging

Still unsure?  That’s okay, we can take the process of simulating a new smile for you one step further, utilizing the Itero Intraoral Scanner. By simply merging the photos of your smile and a digital scan of your teeth, we are able to print a 3D “mock-up” of your new smile, that you can actually try on!  Instead of simulating your new smile on a computer, we can simulate the smile in your mouth, when we temporarily place the mock-up on top of your natural teeth.

The technology is revolutionary because it is now possible for you to see the potential results of ANY Cosmetic Dentistry BEFORE committing to any treatment.  With a vision and a plan of what you want right from the start, you can be more confident in your commitment to your journey of improving your smile and dental health. In the past, our patients had to have faith that things would look better in the end without having any idea where we were taking them. Now, with a Cosmetic Dental Plan from the beginning, you can feel more confident about saying yes!

Insurance and Payment Plans

We try to make it easy for everyone to have a beautiful smile. Each individual is different and so are your treatment plans. Our insurance coordinator will work with your insurance company to ensure that you receive your maximum benefits. 

Our dental clinic accepts cash, checks, debit cards, and most major credit cards. We also offer in-house financing and payment plans through CareCredit® for patients who qualify. We understand that low monthly payments can make it easier to fit quality dental care into your budget.

COVID-19 Protocols

We recognize that the virus has required all of us to be more mindful as we go through our daily activities, and we take the health of you and our staff very seriously. We want to reassure you that we are taking every precaution to continue to service our patients in a completely safe and hygienic clinical environment. All of our treatment rooms are private with closed doors, limiting risk of exposure and allowing social distancing. We take our patients’ health very seriously. Specific steps we are taking include:

  • Disinfecting public areas of the clinic repeatedly throughout the day between patients.
  • No waiting in the waiting room; simply fill out any new patient forms online before your appointment.
  • When you arrive at the clinic, you will be taken back to a disinfected treatment room.
  • Each room is thoroughly sanitized after each patient.
  • Dr. Dougherty and all staff wear masks and gloves that are changed out after each patient.
  • We are currently not treating any patients with any possible symptoms of illness or who have had potential contact with anyone who is sick. If you have recently traveled, we also ask that you kindly wait 14 days before coming into the clinic to ensure you do not develop any symptoms.
