The safety, health and well-being of our mutual patients has always been our top priority. Whether this is through the care we provide or the environment of our surgical facilities. Our internal policies and procedures have always exceeded federally mandated guidelines to protect our patients and staff. Our commitment to provide your patients the safest care throughout this evolving situation is not something we take lightly.
We always have and will continue to go above and beyond to ensure that we are exceeding the highest standard of care and customer service.
Here are a few extra precautions that we are taking, but not limited to:
• Monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization.
• Following the news related to local conditions on an hourly basis.
• Increasing the frequency of our sanitation practices inside and outside our surgical facilities.
• Wiping down our waiting rooms, chairs, counters and door handles hourly.
• Providing additional hand sanitizer to patients.
• Allowing our patients to wait in their cars or outside our office and notifying them when we are ready for their appointment.
We are also asking our patients a few questions to help mitigate any potential exposures. These questions are:
• If you are a patient who has traveled outside the US within the last month
• Had contact with someone who traveled outside the US and was/is now sick
• Had contact with someone who was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus or the flu
• Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms: Temperature, Active Cough or Trouble Breathing
If you answer yes, our doctor will be informed and will take appropriate action to protect patients and staff.
The Doctors and Staff at SVII
If you are missing one or several teeth, chances are you are considering dental implants as a method of restoring your smile and oral function. Implants can provide a life-long solution to tooth loss and are the recommended method of treatment in many cases. As the popularity of this procedure increases, so do the oral care professionals who offer this service. Receiving your dental implants from a specialist is essential for the following four reasons.
To become a specialist, a doctor must undergo comprehensive training that takes years to complete. During this time, the physician learns academic as well as practical skills that will allow him to map out appropriate treatment plans for patients with varying circumstances. While traditional dentists may receive training in the form of weekend courses or continuing education classes, these programs do not have the breadth or depth of surgical specialist training. Working with a variety of circumstances and learning how to mitigate complications are an essential part of a specialist’s education and will help ensure successful results for you.
2. Success Rate
Dental implants traditionally have a high success rate. The Institute for Dental Implant Awareness states that between 95 and 97 percent of all procedures in the marketplace are considered effective by the patient and physician. This success rate is a direct result of the large number of experienced experts who have spent years training to complete this intricate procedure.
3. Final Appearance
When you commit to dental implants to replace missing teeth, you expect seamless, natural results and that is what specialists provide. With a professional, you can expect the angle, color, size and positioning of your new implant to fit your jaw perfectly.
When properly placed, implants should last 30 or more years. Each detail must be carefully attended to for this expected longevity. Contactthe office of Dr. Steven Saunders, Dr. Jeff Saunders and Dr. Jeff Dickson to schedule a consultation with an implant specialist.
