A Commitment to Patient Education
Dr. Ayzin and the staff at Dentistry @ Its Finest find that the best way to keep patients at ease in the office, and satisfied after their treatment, is to make sure that they are well informed. The more you know about the procedures that you will undergo, the more comfortable you are with them. This is why we use advanced patient education technology such as an intraoral camera, which lets you see the condition of your teeth and gums, and lets us show you the areas we’ll be working on.
Giving back to the community.
