More About Edinburgh Family Dentistry

A Clean & Safe Practice

We follow all ADA and OSHA recommended standards for a clean and safe dental practice. We have a dedicated sterilization area where every instrument is disinfected and made ready before your visit, and we also thoroughly sanitize each room between patients. We worry about the cleanliness of our office so you’ll never have to!

Education & Credentials

We are fully trained, skilled and certified to provide the expertise you are looking for. To fulfill our responsibility to continuing education, we regularly attend dental conventions, seminars and clinical courses to stay on top of the latest treatment procedures and techniques. We are constantly seeking ways to better care for you and your family.

Information & Accommodations

One of the most important commitments we have to our patients is education. We feel that in too many cases, patients are pressured into expensive and invasive procedures without being fully informed about their options. We strive to empower you to make wise decisions for your oral health and develop conservative treatment plans to accommodate your individual needs and budget. We also make sure we are fully informed about your medical history, current medications and any other factors that might affect your dental health and treatment.

Kid Friendly & Kid Sensitive

Habits such as improper brushing and finger sucking can affect a child’s smile development – in the teeth, gums and even the jawbone. We understand that many children feel scared or uneasy about dental visits, and that our younger patients have different needs for treatment and communication. Our gentle manner and kid friendly staff will help your child feel at ease in our care. Best of all, we’re conveniently located just minutes from Hickory and Great Bridge schools, which means less school time missed for dental appointments!
