Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
As smart phones and hand-held computers bring the convenience of modern technology literally at our fingertips, Houston dentist, Dr. Terry Lee, wondered why dental offices have not followed suit. He grew tired of hearing people complain about lobby wait times, bill confusion, and being referred out to other specialists. These grievances led him and his comrades to develop a plan for a Garden Oaks area dental facility staffed with leading Houston dentists who know how to give patients the best dental experience possible.
“The office is equipped with efficient technology to serve the patients,” says Dr. Lee. “Patients will check in at a kiosk, and immediately get seated in one of our operatories. Patients will be served without the usual waiting and time-consuming paperwork.”
Dr. Lee explains that insurance information will be collected prior to the patient’s appointment and therefore not take up more of their time in the office. The team at Signature Smiles will use technology to keep patients informed through showing them videos of treatment options on their iPads, peace-of-mind cavity detection software, and more.
Signature Smiles’ multiple operatories will make it easy for the dentists to stay on schedule, and it will be possible for parents and their children to be treated at the same time.
“Our specialty is young families. We understand the cost, anxiety, and complexity of bringing each family member to the dentist,” says Dr. Lee. “We have a nursery room for the babies. We have an arcade for the children. Adults can watch TV and relax during treatment. We have cutting edge technology such as the lowest radiation digital x-rays available, dental lasers, and dental implants.”
Signature Smiles will have a full range of dental professionals: family practice and cosmetic dentists, a Houston pediatric dentist, a certified sedation dentist, and an orthodontist all under one roof.
“We invite community members to take a tour of our dental office,” says Dr. Lee. “We want everyone to see how unique and high-tech our office is. We want them to check out our children’s arcade, our customized operatories, and meet our amazing staff.”
