Our Dental Technology

At Dodds Dental, we take pride in doing dentistry differently. That’s why Dr. Emily Dodds and Dr. Dustin Dodds invest in the latest dental technology to enhance your comfort, health, and level of oral care. We believe that our commitment to an exceptional patient experience is what sets us apart, and our state-of-the-art equipment helps us ensure that you enjoy every aspect of your visit with us.

No More Goopy Impressions

The iTero Element 2 Scanner

The newest dental technology in our office is a digital scanner, the iTero Element 2. This scanner is one of the most cutting-edge scanners on the market and allows us to take oral images and scans without using dental impressions, which many patients find to be uncomfortable, particularly if they have a sensitive gag reflex.

With the iTero Element 2, a simple scan of your teeth helps us plan treatment for Invisalign, crowns and bridges, implant restorations, full and partial dentures, nightguards, retainers, and more. These quick scans help us provide flexibility and keep you comfortable by avoiding the need for messy dental impressions.

Catching Cavities Early

Intraoral Cameras

We also have a number of advanced intraoral cameras that we use to diagnose a variety of dental health issues, including cavities. With bright light and magnification, we can spot tooth decay before it progresses, and we can also diagnose potential cases of oral cancer and other oral issues more effectively.

Faster Scans, Lower Waits

Digital X-Rays

We use a digital x-ray unit that can take bitewing x-rays as well as full-mouth panorex x-rays of your entire upper and lower jaw, as well as your temporomandibular joints and sinuses. Digital x-rays are faster than traditional, film-based x-rays, and they also require less radiation. We also have a portable x-ray unit called the Nomad, which allows us to take X-rays just about anywhere without specialized, immobile equipment.

Convenient Charting

Paperless Forms & Charts

For your convenience, we use paperless forms and charts, and you can get details about your visit online. At Dodds Dental, you’ll never have to deal with complicated forms or paperwork. Just log into your patient portal and you can see everything you need to know about your oral health at a glance. Not only is this convenient for you, but it’s faster for our team, which means lower wait times and more efficient service.

Comfort & Entertainment

Netflix In Every Operating Room

We’re dedicated to your comfort, and we have HD TVs with Netflix in every operating room. Want to catch up on Stranger Things during your six-month teeth cleaning at Dodds Dental? Just let us know, and we’ll be more than happy to stream you favorite shows!
