At Dentistry for Kids and Adults, we are committed to delivering quality dental care to you and your family safely and efficiently. As a part of this commitment, we continuously seek out the best materials and technology to help us provide the best possible care and create a pleasant experience every time you visit.
Digital Radiography has changed the way we take dental x-rays, making the process safer, faster and a lot more comfortable. Unlike traditional x-rays that use film, digital x-rays are taken with a small digital sensor that uses significantly less radiation and doesnt require the use of chemicals to develop the images.
With digital x-rays, high-quality images instantly pop-up on the screen, saving time and allowing us to review your x-rays and share our findings with you right in the treatment room. The use of digital technology also helps us make a more accurate diagnosis and make better treatment recommendations.
An intra-oral camera is a small, pen-like device used to take high-quality, magnified, color images of your teeth and gums. It helps us diagnose and document certain conditions that may not be visible on x-rays, and it allows us to share this information with insurance companies and dental specialists as needed.
We are proud to be one of the first practices in Santa Clarita to utilize Cone Beam 3D technology. This advanced technology allows us to take three-dimensional of your mouth and jaw with less radiation and in less time than traditional film.
DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary new way to find even the smallest areas of tooth decay and cavities. By using the advanced DIAGNOdent technology, we can treat small cavities and areas of tooth decay before they become larger issues requiring multiple procedures.
DIAGNOdent is a pen-like device that uses a precise laser scanning system to scan your teeth while sending out an audio signal and registering a digital read-out. By measuring the fluorescence within each tooths structure, we can identify where cavities are developing on and around your teeth. DIAGNOdent is comfortable and takes only a few short minutes to scan your entire mouth for cavities and decay. Detecting tooth decay as early as possible helps eliminate the number of costly treatments that you may need down the line and helps treat small problems before they become serious dental cases.
Our practice is completely paperless, which means that our patients charts, clinical notes, medical histories, x-rays and other vital records are stored electronically. Using less paper is great for the environment, and it helps us provide safer, convenient, and more thorough care to our patients.
Isolite is an innovative device that makes your procedure more comfortable, reduces treatment time, and assures high-quality dental care for you and your loved ones. Isolite is a soft, flexible mouthpiece that gives patients a place to rest their jaw and relax. It protects the tongue and cheeks, keeps away any debris and controls bad tastes and smells.
Trios Intraoral Scanners have replaced the need for messy, uncomfortable impressions that often had to be taken over and over again and didnt always produce the best results. The new, state-of-the-art 3S Shapes Trios Scanner takes high-quality digital impressions in color, significantly improving accuracy and the final fit of your dental restoration. There are many benefits of using Intraoral Scanners for digital impressions. Scanning is more comfortable and takes less time to complete than traditional dental impressions.
Unlike the conventional plastic trays and rubbery impression materials, digital scans produce less distortion and more accurate digital impression, which in turn, leads to better clinical outcomes. Moreover, because digital scans are sent to the laboratory directly via a secure portal, there are fewer steps, limiting the risk of errors or miscommunication.
ScanX Digital Radiography System utilizes wireless, wafer-thin PSPs to take digital x-rays with exceptional comfort and the same crisp image quality. PSP plates are very thin, small, flexible, and have rounded corners so that even our youngest patients can feel comfortable and relaxed when taking their first x-rays.
PSP plates are also faster and more sensitive than traditional dental film and require a lot less radiation so that moms and dads can be confident that their child is receiving the least amount of radiation needed to produce a necessary diagnostic x-ray.
We were voted the Best Dentist in Santa Clarita, and we work hard every day to show our patients why we deserve this honor. We love to see patients return year after year and we have proudly served generations of families in our practice. We believe in preventive dentistry because we feel that prevention is the best way to control both dental disease and the cost of dental care. We encourage our patients to come in regularly for their cleanings and checkups so that problems can be noted earlier and treated with less invasive techniques.
We take full advantage of the newest advances in dental technology. We use lasers, digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, and Cone Beam Computing Tomography (CBCT) to provide safe, comfortable, and non-invasive diagnosis and treatments. And we are environmentally-conscious. Our paperless technology with iPad registration forms and online access save trees and save our patients time.
From the beginning, it was our mission to provide the finest dental care with a personal touch. We have designed our spa-like office with your comfort and convenience in mind. We invite you to have a refreshing beverage, cover your eyes with protective eyeshades, put on soundproofing headphones, and relax with a neck pillow and a warm blanket as you watch TV or listen to music during treatment. But its not our amenities that will make your visit pleasant; its our attentive and patient-focused team who will do everything they can to create a great dental experience for you and your loved ones.
Our goal is to assure that kids and young adults feel good about visiting the dentist and establish healthy habits that promote a lifetime of healthy and beautiful smiles. We appreciate the trust and confidence that parents place in us, and we work hard to earn the trust and confidence of their children.
We focus on prevention, early detection, and gentle treatment in a non-threatening and caring environment. Our bright, spacious, and open child-friendly facility allows parents to stay with their little ones as they receive gentle dental cleanings or dental treatment.
We use a tell-show-do technique to help children get to know us before we begin any treatment. With fun cartoons on the ceiling monitors, our caring, and upbeat dental team, and cool prizes awarded for good behavior, its no wonder that our young patients look forward to going to the dentist.
Our practice is centrally located in a way that allows us to serve: Canyon Country, Saugus, Valencia, Newhall, Stevensons Ranch, Castaic, Palmdale, and Lancaster. Wherever you are coming from in the greater Santa Clarita area, it will be an easy trip to our office.
Every day we meet people who would rather be anywhere else but here. We meet people who suffer from painful teeth and bad breath; who are self-conscious about their smile; who fear to go to the dentist because of a bad experience in the past; who have waited too long and are now embarrassed to return.
If this is you, we can help! We promise to listen. We promise that we will not lecture or judge. We promise to take the time and work with you within your comfort and budget. Weve helped thousands of patients, just like you to achieve a healthy smile, gently, comfortably and painlessly. And we are here for you!
