My grandmother, who worked for a local dentist many years ago, would dispense this valuable advice when I was growing up - be true to your teeth, or they will be false to you. Sure it’s a bit corny, but it has stuck with me for years, and it instilled in me a desire to make sure my teeth get the care they deserve.
This past summer, Oakdale Square was fortunate to get a new practice with an innovative approach to oral health care to serve our community. Dr. Cassandra Nguyen and Dr. Tuan Do established this new, family-friendly dental practice. They perform general dentistry, oral surgery, root canals, cosmetic enhancements (whitening, crowns, and veneers), and gum treatments.
Both dentists are passionate about educating their patients about preventative care to help ensure a lifetime of good, oral health. Technology is utilized in a cutting-edge manner to enhance the patient’s experience. For instance, digital records replace paper files for a more secure retention of patient information, lasers are used to minimize pain experienced through traditional methods of dentistry, and flat screen televisions are used to share dental images between the patient and the doctor to encourage discussion and education.
This type of innovative business will surely serve this community well for many generations, as Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Do are looking to set deep roots in the community. They are also committed to Dedham’s vision of a greener town by using technology to reduce paper consumption, and their new office was built to meet the standards of the 2011 efficient energy code.
Advanced Oakdale Dental is a multi-specialist office which has an in-house endondontist, Dr. Thomas Ollerhead, who provides root canals and root canal retreatments, and periodontist, Dr. Richard Glick, who provides gum treatments and implants.
Great care was given to the office space to help put patients at ease. The furnishings promote a relaxed environment - for instance, the dentists selected chairs with ultra leather and flexible arm rests to enhance comfort, and installed flat screens in each treating room, so patients can relax and watch their favorite programs.
To kickoff their practice, Advanced Oakdale Dental is running a variety of introductory specials, which are highlighted on their website - www.AdvancedOakdaleDental.com.
Please stop by and say hello to Dr. Nguyen, Dr. Do, Dr. Glick and Dr. Ollerhead. And, if you’re looking for a dentist who is approachable, caring and very passionate about your well-being, then give them a try.
