Late-night comic David Letterman brought the Top Ten List to life as a regular segment of his show, back in September 1985. Since then, humorous, tongue-in-cheek Top Ten Lists have become commonplace in many aspects of life.
Dr. Don Jones and his team at Social Circle Dental would like to introduce you to a new kind of Top Ten List. One that has the potential to impact the oral health, whole body wellness, peace of mind, budget, and busy schedule of you and your whole family.
The Top Ten Ways Social Circle Dental can enhance your life:
10 - Respect for your time. We know how important it is to keep appointments running on schedule and to ensure that each patient gets Dr. Jones' undivided attention. We book just one patient in a slot, allowing plenty of time. We also utilize time saving modern technologies such as CEREC for same-day restorations.
9 - Respect for your financial situation. We offer financing options and we help you file dental insurance claim forms.
8 - Respect your feelings. We understand that patients of any age may feel anxiety at the thought of a trip to the dentist. We provide a warm, comfortable atmosphere. Our staff is friendly and our care is compassionate. You get easy to understand explanations to help you make educated care decisions. We return calls and answer correspondence promptly so you don't feel forgotten.
7 - Respect for your family. Comprehensive care for everyone under one roof makes your family part of the Social Circle Dental family. It's convenient for you, and it allows us to apply an understanding of your genetic, medical, and dental background to current treatment.
6 - Respect for your overall health needs. We foster a broad network of like-minded practitioners. While we strive to accommodate all of your oral needs in-house, that network gives us the ability to refer you to a trusted associate for very specialized dental procedures, or other health issues.
5 - A wealth of experience. Dr. Jones has more than three decades of experience in preventing, detecting, and treating dental problems. His passion for providing healthy dentistry continues to grow, along with his knowledge base and artistry.
4 - General and cosmetic dentistry with holistic standards. Holistic dentistry recognizes the intimate relationship of oral health to whole body wellness. It is important that your dentist be able to deliver the gorgeous smile of your dreams. Dr. Jones provides safe general and cosmetic dentistry with attention to healthy materials and techniques that look great while doing no harm.
3 - Mercury free dentistry. Conventional “silver” amalgam fillings are comprised of about 50 percent mercury. We do not place amalgam fillings and we keep none of it on premises. Instead, we provide body-safe alternative materials that are strong and durable, and look natural.
2 - Mercury safe dentistry. Our patients may request that old amalgam fillings be replaced, or those teeth may require additional dental work. We adhere to the strict protocols established by the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) for safe removal and disposal of mercury fillings.
And the number one way Social Circle Dental can enhance your life is...
1 - Biological dentistry. Biological dentistry takes a holistic approach to the next level. We not only operate a mercury free practice with mercury safe removal techniques. We treat each patient as an entire person, not a mouth, or a single dental problem. That requires an understanding that everything we do to your mouth impacts other areas of your body. We utilize only biocompatible materials, and provide advice on nutrition and detoxification to improve overall wellness.
Become a Social Circle Dental patient today, to start taking advantage of the benefits of an enhanced life through biological dentistry.
Dentistry can involve more than the diagnosis and treatment of the mouth, teeth, and gums. Taking dentistry a step further, holistic dentists are mindful of how dental materials, technology, and procedures affect overall health and wellbeing. Holistic dentistry is about treating the whole body and often involves choosing the most conservative treatments. Patients can find this approach to dentistry at the office of Dr. Jones in Social Circle.
Using safe and effective dental materials
Dr. Jones operates a mercury free dental practice avoiding the toxicity of amalgam or other metals. His metal-free dental restorations are made of composite resin or porcelain; both are biocompatible materials. Composite resin is a tooth-colored material that is versatile and used for smaller dental fillings. Porcelain is a stain resistant, stronger, more durable material that is natural looking and blends nicely with the smile. We provide porcelain dental crowns and veneers, which can restore the health and beauty of the smile.
Utilizing innovative technology to educate patients
We utilize technology to better the patients’ lives. Providing the utmost convenience, we can utilize CEREC (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic) technology to provide beautiful porcelain dental crowns in a single appointment. Following tooth preparation and digital impressions, crowns are milled in the office. After checking the fit, size, and appearance of the crowns, they are bonded to the teeth. Ensuring a team approach to diagnoses and treatments, we can utilize an intraoral camera to educate patients about conditions. The technology helps to identify issues that may not be visible with the unassisted eye. After capturing detailed images inside of the mouths, we can view them on a computer screen and discuss them.
Providing conservative dental treatment
Dr. Jones is concerned about the effects cosmetic and restorative procedures can have on the overall body. Therefore, he recommends the most conservative treatments. For example, he provides teeth whitening treatment that can gradually brighten the smile. With this method, he avoids using strong bleaching chemicals that can irritate the gums. Instead, we will customize precisely fitting whitening trays and provide gentle bleaching gel for brightening teeth at home. For chipped, cracked, gapped, or misaligned teeth, he can provide veneers. For treatment, he will keep as much of the natural teeth intact as possible during the tooth preparation procedure.
Dental materials, technology, and types of procedures are a few factors to consider when selecting the right dentist for you and your family. To learn more about Dr. Jones’ holistic approach to dentistry, call 770-464-1900.
