West Chester PA (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
New technology recently introduced at Dr. Mark Sullivan’s dental office in West Chester, PA is helping patients become more educated about their dental conditions and treatment with intraoral photography. The intraoral camera technology used at Sullivan Dental not only aids in more accurate care, but helps patients feel more confident with their dental procedures as well.
X-ray images have been one of the most used methods to determine which oral conditions exist in each patient’s mouth and also what treatment is needed to correct them. However, X-ray images are not completely accurate and are often difficult for the average patient to decipher. With intraoral photography, a camera is placed at the end of a wand-like device that can easily reach all areas of the mouth, giving patients a better view of their teeth in real time and the dentist a more accurate look at what treatment is required.
“Comfort and convenience are the hallmarks of our office, and with our new intraoral photography, we’re able to provide a higher level of both,” said Dr. Mark Sullivan of Sullivan Dental. “With this new device, we can show patients in high resolution imaging which conditions need correcting instead of just taking our word for it from X-ray imaging. In turn, they feel more confident and comfortable with the procedures we complete.”
Besides providing a better patient experience, intraoral photography is beneficial to document oral conditions for insurance purposes. High resolution imaging of the intraoral camera can pick up even the smallest defects and details not previously possible with X-rays.
Patient reviews of Dr. Mark Sullivan’s new intraoral photography have been outstanding.
“I always appreciate the care I receive, and it’s the special touches that I love,” said Jeff, a patient of Sullivan Dental in West Chester, PA. “They are always trying to make me more comfortable and, when necessary, willing to go the extra mile. I never thought going to the dentist could be an enjoyable experience, but with Dr. Sullivan and his staff it is.”
In addition to offering the latest dental technology, Dr. Mark Sullivan and his staff in West Chester, PA also provide general dentistry and preventative care, cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, bridges, treatment for tooth sensitivity, TMJ and more.
Dr. Sullivan received his dental education at Temple University after graduating from Villanova University. He places a high importance on continuing education in dentistry and has completed more than 500 hours of extracurricular classes to enhance his skills as a dental professional. He was completed courses in general aesthetics dentistry and is known to offer the most advanced dental technologies in his office.
