Wilshire Dental and Village Dental's Newly-Renovated Offices Ready for Patients

October 08, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Wilshire and Village Dental recently renovated its Santa Monica and Los Angeles dental offices to better serve the community. Upgrades include amenities for patients, modern digital tools, and behind-the-scenes software that empower the staff to work more efficiently and spend more time with patients.

Los Angeles, California Wilshire Dental, a general and cosmetic dentistry practice in the Los Angeles area, recently renovated its Westwood Village and Santa Monica offices. Investments in digital x-ray equipment, intra oral cameras, an endodontic microscope, practice management software, flat screen televisions, and interior paint have modernized the offices, and all work is now complete.

"These renovations are all about the patient experience," said Dr. Melanie Schlang, one of the four dentists on the Wilshire Dental team. "Whether from a comfort, convenience, or oral health standpoint, everything we did was examined from the patient's perspective," she said. "Even upgrades to our backend practice management software have an impact on our ability to deliver an exceptional experience."

According to Dr. Schlang, the move from traditional x-rays to XDR digital x-rays reduces the amount of radiation patients are exposed to and vastly improves diagnosis. "The images are much clearer," she said. "And they can be enlarged and the contrast increased for an optimal diagnosis."

She was also excited about the practice's new intra oral cameras and Zeiss microscopes. The intra oral cameras are useful both for viewing crevices in the teeth as well as in educating patients. For patients in need of a root canal, Wilshire Dental's new Zeiss endodontic microscopes allow the dentists to perform more complicated root canal procedures in-house. Dr. Schlang explained that rather than referring patients to specialists and introducing potential delays, root canal patients can get immediate relief.

"We've also created a more modern, relaxing experience complete with flat screen TVs in each room and soothing paint schemes," she said. "Whether our patients want to catch up on the latest news or relax with silly cartoons, we can make it happen."
