Relax and ease any feelings of anxiety that you may feel while visiting the dentist by becoming an informed participant in the decision making process.

The DIAGNOdent® is an exciting new dental technology, allowing Dr.’s Bruce and Wintzell to find cavities on the chewing surfaces of your back teeth, even when they are just beginning and would have been missed by previous detection methods. The DIAGNOdent® is a small, portable laser unit that detects the cavity and alerts your dental team with an audible signal and readout explaining the cavity’s size. Stop cavities in their infancy rather than waiting until they are significantly bigger and causing major problems. As always, early detection and treatment is of immeasurable value in preserving your oral health.
