You are the most important patient whenever you visit Plano Smile Studio. We know some of you may be thinking that’s a little corny, but it’s an important part of how we have designed our practice.
“One patient at a time” is our motto. For us, this means the patient sitting in our chair is the most important person in our office.
We also take pride in being able to provide complete dental care for patients in Plano and throughout the Dallas and Fort Worth area. We want to be a one-stop shop for all the dental care needs you and your family may have.
Our own Dr. Hucklebridge is a graduate of Baylor University and the Baylor College of Dentistry. He has been a practicing dentist for more than 25 years.
During that time, he has attained fellowship status in the American Academy of General Dentistry. Fewer than 10 percent of dentist achieve this recognition, which requires 500 hours of continuing education and completion of the fellowship examination among other requirements.
He has previously been recognized by his peers as one of the best cosmetic dentists in Plano.
More recently he received notice of another award. Dr. Hucklebridge will appear in the database of topDentists™ and he will be listed as one of the best dentists in the August edition of FortWorth texas magazine.
TopDentists is based on surveys of dentists and specialists. In other words, Dr. Hucklebridge’s peers also consider him one of the best dentists in the Lone Star State.
You may not care about the awards mentioned above, but you should care about the reasons Dr. Hucklebridge received them. It’s because he and his team take pride in providing the highest quality of care for every patient who walks through our door.
This starts with the preventive care we provide for children and adults alike. We encourage all our patients to receive a cleaning from our dental hygienist, Jan Wares, at least twice a year. (Patients with recurring oral health issues may need to visit us more frequently.)
During your cleaning, you can expect to receive personal attention. You also can expect a professional cleaning and examination. We will remove any tartar or plaque buildup in your mouth, and we will be on the lookout for any signs or symptoms of gum disease, tooth decay, or other oral health problems.
We also use digital radiography to make X-rays of your teeth. This provides us with information on changes to the alignment of your teeth, and it uses 90 percent less radiation than standard X-rays.
You also will have the opportunity to get dental sealants (which can reduce your and your children’s risk of developing cavities) and fluoride treatments (which can strengthen and repair the enamel on your teeth).
If we lived in a perfect world, everyone would brush and floss their teeth like they should. Everyone would come to our office for routine cleanings and checkups, and no one would ever get a cavity, much less lose a tooth or teeth.
Since we don’t live in that perfect world, we want to be prepared to help with any dental problems that may arise.
If you have teenagers or children who will someday be teenagers, you will be glad to know that we offer orthodontic care in our practice. This includes Invisalign, which uses clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth instead of the brackets and wires used with traditional braces.
We also want you to know that our office is considered an Invisalign Preferred Provider. This means our office has treated several patients with this system. More importantly, our patients have successfully straightened their smiles.
As your teens get older, their wisdom teeth will erupt. Experts estimates vary, but as many as 85 percent of patients will need to have these teeth removed to prevent long-term oral health problems.
You will be happy to know that we can do teeth extractions in our office as well.
Your comfort is as important to us as the dental care that we provide.
For this reason, we offer oral conscious sedation and IV sedation in our office. Either option is great for patients who experience dental anxiety.
This will help you relax, and you may even sleep through your procedure with no memory of your treatment.
