Dr. Amano and his staff believe that each patient should come to his or her own decision about what treatment is best, but an intelligent decision requires enough information to make that decision. That’s why we explain everything including what is wrong (photographs, x-rays, printed materials, and illustrative models), the consequences of no treatment, various treatment options, costs in both time and money, and any other information that is pertinent to each individual situation. We strongly believe in pro active preventative dentistry like adult sealants and fluoride varnish and a variety of current preventative gum disease measures. We will answer all questions that you may have with accuracy and integrity.
When treatment begins we always apply our zero tolerance for pain, COMFORT ZONE PROTOCOLS. These include especially selected anesthetics for maximum comfort, and added things like neck pillows, CD players with headphones, blankets, etc. The point is we believe you, the patient, should make the decisions about your own treatment. The very latest dental materials (Dr. Amano has a complete understanding about this because he has a Ph. D. in Chemistry), and most of the available high tech instruments like digital x-rays, laser decay detection, high resolution photography, digital apex locator for root canals, etc. will be used as required. The entire dental team will provide excellent dental care with the highest level of comfort.
