Richmond Dentist Announces the Launch of New Website Designed to Educate the Community on Oral Healthcare

January 28, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Richmond family dentist, Juan M. Carrillo, DMD, of Soothing Dental Care, has announced the launch of a new, patient-focused website. Dr. Carrillo's practice is utilizing the website to educate the community on the importance of oral health. The website includes a library of dental videos designed to educate visitors on various general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry procedures, and a free interactive smile analysis to help visitors identify aspects of their smiles they would like to correct or restore.

"Our website was designed with our patients and the community in mind. It's a great resource if you're trying to learn more about a procedure, or if you simply want to know more about our practice before you stop in for a visit," Dr. Carrillo said. "We're excited to provide this extra level of service to our patients and the Richmond community."

Launching a new website also fit in with Dr. Carrillo's goal of using technology to provide better service and results to his patients. His practice has been using digital intraoral cameras and the latest digital panoramic x-rays for several years, which helps produce better treatment plans, and ultimately, better end results. Like the new website, Dr. Carrillo's digital imaging equipment assists with patient education.

"I want my patients to be absolutely comfortable before moving forward with any treatment plan. If I can show them what I see with an intraoral camera, and then provide them with information about the procedure or a video from my website, that empowers the patient and gives any treatment a higher success rate," Dr. Carrillo said. "A well-informed patient is better able to attain the smile they truly desire."

Visitors to the website can find helpful dental links, read patient reviews of the practice and download patient forms if they are a new patient. They can also read in-depth descriptions of the services performed by Dr. Carrillo. Some of the services offered at Soothing Dental Care include:

  • Cosmetic Dentistry
  • Dental Implants
  • Family Dentistry
