Our team of highly knowledgeable dentists attend additional education courses, clocking more than 100 hours each year to fulfill the oral needs of their patients effectively and efficiently. We proudly use state-of-the-art equipment to provide gentler, more accurate care, utilizing tools for advanced interventions as well as basic dental care. For example, our intra-oral camera functions allow us to view images on our computer immediately, giving us the ability to educate our patients and engage with them about which treatment option would benefit them best.

Ensuring the Safety & Comfort of Our Patients
Both our dental team and patients love how safe our in-office technology is. Our new digital x-ray system emits less radiation, while still providing our Richardson patients with essential information to properly examine their mouth and diagnose various oral diseases. With modernized dental instruments, we’re able to perform less invasive procedures and reduce the chances of common gum disease infections. Treatments like Invisalign and dental implants are another great alternative to braces and dentures because they ensure the comfort and convenience of our patients.
At Richardson Dentistry, we use the SL3 Laser for soft-tissue treatments. Laser technology affords us greater accuracy with complex periodontal issues and rapid healing times for our patients. Thanks to the soft tissue laser technology, we can treat them with more comfort and precision than ever. The specially calibrated light beam is used to sculpt and cauterize specific areas of tissue, effectively minimizing bleeding and accelerating the healing time.
Say goodbye to messy dental impressions with the 3shape TRIOS intraoral scanner! Generally, in the past, we were required to take a physical impression of your mouth that was then sent to the lab for custom-made crowns, appliances, and aligners. Now with the help of TRIOS, we’re able to scan your teeth and email the impression to our lab digitally, for a quicker process and turnaround time.
The world of dentistry has been revolutionized by 3D printing technology. 3D printers have become so advanced in recent years, they can print nearly anything within a matter of minutes. Our office uses a Formlabs® 3D Printer to quickly and easily create totally customized molds and resins for dental patient use.
We can use our 3D printing technology to create fully custom:
- Crown and bridge models
Electronic documents help us to minimize the storage and scanning of paper documents, limiting the need for paper shredding services and the growth of scanned images. Having all our practice’s documents organized digitally can dramatically improve efficiency and make the lives of our employees and patients easier.
