We want all of your patients to be relaxed and comfortable while they wait for their appointment. Take a seat in our tastefully decorated reception area and enjoy a cup of coffee or a hot mug of tea.
Our staff loves children! We have gone above and beyond in making our office a pleasant experience for all of our patients, regardless of their age. We encourage your children to enjoy our brightly colored waiting area, complete with fun activities and an arcade machine.
Our treatment rooms are truly state of the art. There are two TV’s in each room: one 32” mounted against the wall so patients can actually see their own teeth, radiographs, and images in high definition and another flush with the ceiling so patients can watch something entertaining while receiving treatment. There are computers in every operatory as well as up-to-date dentistry technology to provide you with the best possible service. One thing that sets us apart from other practices is that all of our treatment rooms have glass doors which allow us to provide our patients with privacy and keeps us HIPAA compliant.
Proper sterilization is a top priority at Ada Smile Place. We also have a cutting-edge hospital-grade sterilizer called a Triangle Unit which is developed by Patterson Dental. The sinks, doors, and drawers are all foot activated which helps us keep everything as clean as possible.
The consultation room is the heart of our office. Here we can talk with patients one-on-one about their treatment and finance options. It is much better talking face-to-face in a quiet non-dental room where the patient and financial coordinator can discuss possible options, and they can choose the treatment that best coincides with their own dental goals.
The comfort of our patients is one of our highest priorities. Our staff is always ready to offer you a paraffin wax hand treatment, a massaging dental chair, flavored lip balms, warm guest towels, and a chance to listen to your favorite music or watch a movie while you get treatment. Afterwards, we will give you a delicious milkshake!
