GRD welcomes digital impressions!

Digital impressions use a scanning wand to quickly capture thousands of photos of the teeth and tissues in your mouth.  A computer combines these photos to create an accurate, virtual replica of your mouth.  This virtual model can then be transferred to a lab to make your crown, bridge, mouthguard, or other appliance.  We are excited to have this technology available for our patients!

Choosing Wisely, a resource for patients

The American Dental Association is collaborating with Choosing Wisely, an initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation, in an effort to help patients make educated choices about health care.  In addition to conversations with their dentist, patients can access evidence-based information on the website to help make informed decisions about dental treatment.  Visit ADA.org or choosingwisely.org to learn more!
