He also spends his spare time volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America. He used to coach soccer for many years but now generously gives his time to his church.
Our Summerlin Dental Office
We want everybody to feel at home in our dental office. From the moment you enter our doors and see our smiling staff and modern facility and then sit down for your procedure, we want you to feel relaxed and comfortable. With the same attention to detail as we place on our facility, we place on your dental care.
When you first arrive at our dental office, our friendly staff are there to greet you and answer any questions you might have. During your first visit with us, Dr. Polley will discuss your oral health and what matters most to you for your teeth. He is here to offer you immediate and long-term solutions to your problems to deliver lifelong dental health.
Once you enter our treatment rooms, you might notice our wide selection of state-of-the-art dentistry. Each room is equipped with chairside monitors. We also use digital x-rays, digital imaging, and digital photos. Our latest technology is the Orthophos S 3D CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) to take 3D images of your teeth and bones in high detail. This technology uses less radiation than regular medical CT scanners. It also uses an open design so you don’t feel crowded inside. We use this to plan for complex restorative treatments more accurately like dental implants. This helps us plan better, treat you faster, and have better results.
During each appointment, we work with our patients to provide them with the education and tools they need to succeed. We understand that you’re not an expert in dentistry which is why we want to break down each procedure or treatment we offer so that you understand it and decide what is best for you.
Our highly-trained dental hygienist is here to take care of you and provide your teeth with a fresh and clean feeling. She loves to educate our patients about their oral health and provide feedback to help improve oral hygiene.
