How do the doctors keep up-to-date on all of the current techniques and materials?
All of our doctors subscribe to the latest industry journals, which keeps them current on research and development in the dental industry. On a regular basis, we all take time for continuing education so that our whole team stays familiar with the latest techniques and materials available.
How do I know when it's time for a check-up?
Many patients set up their check-up appointments six months in advance, when they leave their last appointment. As a courtesy, we will call patients to remind them of their upcoming general dentistry appointments. If you don’t schedule your checkup in advance, you will receive a postcard in the mail and be contacted by one of our recall coordinators with a friendly reminder.
At what age should my children first see a dentist?
We recommend that you bring your child in Livonia Dental Group for a children's dentistry visit by age three. This appointment is an opportune time for us to spot and prevent any potential oral health problems.
Do you accept referrals?
We are happy to accept referrals from other dental offices as well as from recommendations made by our patients to family and friends. Your referrals are our greatest compliments!
What makes you different than any other dental practice I can visit?
Few practices in Livonia, Michigan have lasted for 50 years. Our gentle touch and conservative approach to dentistry combined with an understanding of the latest dental trends has earned us a loyal patient following. And of course, we cater to the entire family—children, adults, and seniors.
What are crowns, veneers, and onlays?
We are glad you asked! A crown caps the entire structure of a tooth that has become too weak to stand on its own. Porcelain veneers are bonded to the front teeth, while an onlay covers the top of a back tooth. For many crowns, veneers, and onlays, we can create them in just one visit with our new CEREC machine.
Before we acquired the CEREC machine, we had to send the crowns and veneers to a dental laboratory for fabrication, which often took weeks. With CEREC, we can produce them on-site during your visit.
