We Use the Best Technology
When you visit our dental office, we use the highest quality technology in the market to ensure a quick and easy appointment. To relieve stress about what we are doing in your mouth, we use an intraoral camera to show you exactly what’s going on. We also use a soft-tissue laser to make your visits quicker and less painful.
If the metal drill scares you away from the dentist, rest assured. The team at My Hills Dentist uses air abrasion dentistry to clean teeth and remove decay without the sounds or feeling of a metal drill. We also use digital x-rays to reduce the amount of radiation received. With other technological advancements, we assure you that you are in good hands at My Hills Dentist.

Sedation Dentistry Might Be the Answer
Sedation dentistry is a new fad in the dental world. Though the name comes from sedate, it does not always mean putting someone to sleep. There are different levels of sedation dentistry for different procedures and types of anxiety.
Most often, our patients will take a pill an hour before their appointment so they become calm and relaxed yet conscious. Other patients need a bit more medication to take the edge off. In these cases, we prescribe a stronger pill with a groggy effect.
