General Dentistry Treatments in Bernardsville

Bernardsville Dentist Serving Morristown, Basking Ridge, Mendham, Chester, and Far Hills, NJ

Searching for a good dentist is as important as searching for a good medical doctor. It is important to do your homework and research each of your options prior to making any final decisions. At Proud to Smile Dentistry, we place emphasis on the cosmetic and general dental care of each of our patients. Without good general and preventative care, the effort and expense of cosmetic care will not offer lasting results.

We place the highest importance on all of the dental maintenance and cosmetic needs you bring to us from the moment you enter our practice. We employ the most advanced techniques and technology in all of our procedures, whether they are very easily performed or extremely difficult and detailed. To find out more about the services we offer at our practice, please call (908) 888-9858 today.

Dental Training

The dentist you choose should have received up-to-date training and possess a high level of proven skills, with a well-rounded education in general dentistry and in any specialty fields that they regularly practice. They should be considered a reputable professional in all chosen fields of dental practice, and they should come highly recommended by other dentists or people you trust. Patti Swaintek-Lamb, DMD, received her Doctorate of Medical Dentistry from Temple University in 1992 and has continued to pursue training in advanced dental treatments.

Dental Experience

Experience is another major factor when choosing a good general dentist for yourself or for your family. Training is the foundation, but experience and a good reputation for skills, professionalism, and communication with patients is a must for any growing or established practice.

You should focus on your specific needs when determining the type of dentist you are looking for. If you know you will need dental work like bridges or crowns, it is in your best interests to seek a dentist who is known for performing great work in these areas. A dentist who has a great reputation for dental implants but has only done a few bridges or crowns is probably not the best choice to meet your needs.

Ask Questions

The best thing you can do for yourself when choosing a general dentist is to ask a lot of questions about:

  • The dentist
  • The practice
  • The office staff
  • The hygienists
  • The dental assistants
  • The procedures they perform
  • The technologies they use
  • The techniques they use

You can also ask to see pictures of past procedures (before and after).

We offer sedation dentistry with oral and intravenous (IV) sedation as well as nitrous oxide to ensure your maximum comfort. At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, there is a board-certified anesthesiologist on hand to make sure you are safe and adequately sedated.

Consider also making a list of other questions you would like answers to, and be sure to take them with you when you go to your initial consultation. A good dentist will be happy to take the time to talk to you and completely answer any questions you may have.

Your safety, comfort, and care come first, and at our general dentistry office serving Morristown, New Jersey and the surrounding areas, that is our number one priority. Please contact Proud to Smile Dentistry today by calling (908) 888-9858 or completing our online form.

After a thorough, painfree cleaning by the dental hygienist (Karima), Dr. Patti repaired a molar for me. The injection and filling were painless and she explained everything throughout the process. The entire staff is professional and friendly. Best ever dental experience for someone with dental anxiety.The office very recently underwent renovation and it’s gorgeous.
