Making Your Hygiene Visits Easier and Faster

We are always striving to add to our dental knowledge with the latest techniques and technology. Often, innovations mean better care for you or less time in the dental chair!

On your next hygiene appointment, you will notice your hygienist using very specialized technology. It’s called VoiceWorks by Florida Probe and provides the convenience of hands-free periodontal charting. This revolutionary technology lets one of our hygienists do the work of two, and do it more quickly and efficiently.

How does this new technology benefit you? In a lot of ways! Learn more about it before your next appointment.

Ready for a Pleasant & Positive Dental Experience?

Our dental team and Durham dentists look forward to meeting you.
