What was the last cool tech gadget you bought?
In 2017, practically everything we do involves high tech tools.

Discover how innovative technology also works to improve your dental experience at All About Smiles.

Quicker and Safer X-rays than Ever Before
X-rays have become a vital tool for a wide range of dental procedures. Our new digital x-rays ensure that your dental visit will be quicker and more convenient than ever before. Plus, our digital x-rays are significantly safer than others out there, reducing radiation by as much as 70%. Whether you come in for a basic check up or an elaborate dental procedure, your visit will be that much faster and safer due to our digital x-rays.
Precise 3-D Imaging in a Fraction of the Time
When it’s time to undertake a major dental procedure such as dental implant surgery or root canal treatment, the more specific information we have on the patient’s mouth, the more precise and successful the results. Our advanced CT scanner allows us to do just that – greatly improve the detailed data we receive on your jaw, teeth, and face. With the ability to scan the area all the way around a patient’s head, the resulting images are extremely detailed, allowing our McMinnville dentists to create precise treatment plans.
Using Laser Technology to Detect Tooth Decay
A small yet remarkably useful gadget that helps Dr. Golly diagnose tooth decay is Diagnodent. Resembling a thermometer in size and appearance, Diagnodent uses laser technology to identify weakened or decayed areas of teeth. Since early detection presents a much stronger chance of the patient controlling their problem, Decadent is a priceless tool for dentists and patients alike.
Customized Crowns in Just One Appointment
Our CEREC machine drastically reduces the time it takes to create customized crowns, fillings, and other dental restorations. While it can take weeks for traditional crowns to be made in a lab then sent back for fitting, CEREC compresses this timeframe into just one visit to our dentist in McMinnville. Patients can save tons of time and receive same day restorations thanks to CEREC.
Eliminates the Need for Impression Trays
Remember biting into a gooey impression tray at the dentist? Well the Dexcam 4 makes that a thing of the past! Now, Dr. Frances Golly only has to use this small handheld device, and within a few minutes, she can take an accurate digital impression of your teeth. Completely eliminating the need to use trays to take impressions, the Dexcam 4 is extremely valuable in saving time and promoting accurate treatment.
