When you walk into our office, you’ll immediately notice our beautiful, modern facility, which has been carefully designed and maintained. We hope that you’ll see that we treat our patients with the same meticulous attention to detail. If we take such good care of our office, just imagine how well our Summerlin dentist and team tend to the details of your dental work!
When you visit our Summerlin dental office, one of our friendly team members will warmly greet you. If this is your first visit with us, we will usually invite you to chat with our dentist, Dr. Polley so that you can share what matters most to your health and smile. Whether you want immediate, short-term relief or a solution that delivers lifelong health, we’ll cater to your needs, because we’re here to serve you!
Upon entering our treatment room, you’ll discover that we practice state-of-the-art dentistry. Our office features chairside monitors, digital X-rays, digital photos, and digital imaging. Among our new advanced technology is the Orthophos S 3D CBCT (cone beam computed tomography). The Orthophos lets us get 3D images of your teeth and bones in higher detail and with less radiation than a medical CT scanner. Plus, it has an open design, so you’re not crowded in. We use this to help accurately plan for complex restorative procedures like dental implants. The CBCT makes the procedure faster and more accurate so you can get your new smile more quickly and enjoy better results.
We partner with our patients, taking the time needed to educate and inform because you deserve to know and understand the reasoning behind our recommendations. After your visit, you’ll sense that we truly love learning about your dental health, so we can equip you with the information you need to make the best decision for yourself.
Our highly-trained hygienist will take great care of you. She loves educating our patients about their oral health, and she uses educational tools to give them feedback as they work toward improving their hygiene. There is never any scolding, and her kind and gentle touch will make your visits with her something to look forward to.
