Of course, we can’t really claim that Dr. Perry is the best dentist in Baton Rouge–that would be a little audacious, and there is no objective way to determine such a distinction. But we can tell you all the reasons his patients think he is the best Baton Rouge dentist for them.
Commitment to Long-Term Patient Relationships
In his own words, Dr. Perry reinforces his office’s policies on patient-centered practice: “Our goal is to establish a long-term continuing relationship, a trusting friendship with open communication. I’m conservative in my treatment planning–I don’t push. Patients are not going to get the sales pitch here.”
This also means that Dr. Perry will make sure you are completely comfortable with the treatment plan. If financial issues prevent some forms of treatment, Dr. Perry will give you more affordable options with clarity and honesty about the benefits and drawbacks of each option.
State of the Art Equipment and Techniques
We strive to stay at the forefront of the latest practices, both in dentistry techniques and equipment and in methods that make our office run more efficiently.
We use digital radiography, which exposes our patients to 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays. A small sensor records images of your teeth and then sends that image to a computer. This digital image can be enhanced and examined more closely, providing improved diagnostic information.
CEREC stands for Charismatic Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. The CEREC equipment in our office means that we can usually provide our patients with ceramic crowns, inlays, onlays or veneers in just a single visit. An intra-oral camera takes a photograph of the prepared tooth, which is sent to a computer. Computer aided design (CAD) software allows Dr. Perry to custom-design a restoration that is milled right in our office, again using computer-controlled equipment to produce a precisely designed and executed restoration.
Best Dentist Office Methods and Practices
To keep track of your dental records and facilitate claim processing, we use paperless charting and electronic claim processing. Why should this matter to you, beyond ecological considerations? Our paperless charting techniques promote consistent charting and more thorough, accurate dental records. This method also allows us to quickly and accurately share information with your other health care providers, should that become necessary, and (of course) with your permission. Electronic claims processing reduces turn-around time, and is more efficient and accurate. We hope our progressive techniques mean that you will never really have to think about the way we run our office–everything will happen when and as it should, without hassle or delay. Each member of our team strives to make this one of the best Baton Rouge dentist offices available to you.
