Dental Technology

At Island City Dentistry, we are committed to creating the ideal patient experience. We use humor and spend time with our patients to give them a personal and worry-free visit. In addition to friendly and quality care, we incorporate the latest technology into our office.

New dental technology can make your procedures more accurate and less painful. Our technology allows you to make informed decisions about your oral health and which treatments you may need. Some of the technology you will find here includes:

Digital X-Rays

We use digital x-rays because they reduce patient exposure to radiation by up to 90%. The radiographic images from a digital x-ray instantly appear and can be adjusted and magnified on a computer monitor. You can see what Dr. Van Horn sees in real time, and help her make decisions regarding your dental care.

Intraoral Cameras

Intraoral cameras are diagnostic tools that make it possible to view your oral structures from every angle. We can see the entire mouth at once and discover valuable information about your dental needs. You, too, will be able to see the images first hand, and we can instantly send them to your insurance company for treatment acceptance.

Diagnodent Wand

The early and accurate diagnosis of tooth decay is the key to pain-free dentistry. The Diagnodent Wand eliminates the need for the uncomfortable poking and prodding involved in cavity detection. We can use this small wand to detect small areas of decay that other areas of detection often miss. We can treat you earlier with tooth-colored fillings instead of allowing the decay to become more serious.

Dr. Ronda Van Horn and her team are proud to combine art, compassion, and technical excellence. To learn more about the way our office runs, or to schedule your next appointment, contact Island City Dentistry today!
