Our Core Values
Full-Service Dental Care means we will always do our best to keep you comfortable, safe, and happy with your dental experience.
We believe in providing a high level of personal care that our patients expect. We understand that you take valuable time out of your busy schedule for your oral health, and we believe in making it worth your time.
We use high-quality dental materials to mimic the translucent qualities of natural enamel. Our tooth-colored dental materials are shaded to blend in seamlessly with your smile, and we stand behind our care. Simply put, we believe dentistry should look as good as it works.
Modern dentistry is always evolving. Every year introduces us to new pioneering technology that makes patient visits more precise, efficient, and comfortable. We are committed to staying up-to-date through continuous education, and Dr Bridges and our team attend hundreds of hours of educational courses every year.
We approach each patient visit with warmth, compassion, and honesty. As the owner of Smile Station®, Dr Bridges knows that every patient experience matters, and we hold ourselves to higher standards because of this. This personal experience is what sets us apart from corporate-owned and chain dental offices.
We Keep You Healthy and Safe
Your health is important to us. Our dental staff works to establish an environment of trust and comfort by adhering to our strict infection control protocols and sanitation procedures as recommended by OSHA, the American Dental Association, and the CDC. You can relax and feel confident, knowing that your health is valued and secure.
We take care to sanitize all surfaces and rooms between patient visits, and all dental equipment and tools are disinfected. We use air and water purifiers to keep our entire office environment extra clean. Our dental office is one of the safest places you can be at any time.
Our Wonderful Dental Team
Listening is what sets us apart. We truly value your dental concerns, and we will always listen closely to understand your needs.
We will always treat you with respect, even if we only see you one time. We appreciate the trust you place in us, and we work hard to always respect it.
Dentistry is a collaborative effort built on integrity, appreciation, and consideration. Since our goal is to build life-long patient relationships, we focus on patient education to encourage you to actively participate in your own dental health.
We don't believe in taking an aggressive approach. We will never push or intimidate you into receiving unnecessary dental treatments. We understand that your health choices are your own. We are here to listen, give expert advice, and help when necessary.
Modern Dental Technology
Modern dental appointments can be comfortable, safe, and fast compared to days past. The quality of your dental care is greatly influenced by the level of dental technology used. We invest in our patients when we invest in modern dental equipment and training. Patients visits are far more comfortable and speedier than in days past.
For example, our digital x-rays are fast, comfortable, precise and dramatically decrease radiation exposure. Our intraoral cameras allow us to show you close-up photos of each tooth so that you can make better decisions about dental procedures. Digital scans are fast, comfortable and have replaced old-fashioned, messy, gooey impressions. Finally, our 3D cone beam and CT scans help us make complex dental care better, faster, and more comfortable. We will always continue to invest in modern technology to have the best, most comfortable care possible.
