One of the more exciting developments in dentistry is that of minimally invasive, laser technology. The Waterlase MD is a revolutionary device that uses a combination of YSGG laser energy and water, a process called HydroPhotonics, to perform many traditional dental procedures with less anesthesia.
The Waterlase MD allows for precise cavity preps with no pain, needles or drills (in most cases). Plus, minimal amounts of tissue are removed, helping to preserve as much tooth surface as possible. The composite restoration is placed and you'll be on your way with no discomfort or numb lip.
American Dental Association recognizes only nine specialty areas. Cosmetic dentistry, TMJ, implant dentistry, Neuromuscular dentistry and Aesthetic dentistry are not part of these nine specialty areas. While Dr. Shackelford is a general dentist that has received training in these areas, since there is no ADA recognition of specialty in these areas, Georgia rules require the following statement. "Cosmetic dentistry, TMJ, implant dentistry, Neuromuscular dentistry and Aesthetic dentistry are specialty areas not recognized by the ADA that requires no specific educational training to advertise this service".
A professional Atlanta or Suwanee Georgia dentistry practice focusing on cosmetic dentistry is hard to find. The same is the situation for Alpharetta dentistry and Alpharetta Cosmetic dentistry or a convenient Johns Creek dentist or alpharetta dentist. Dr. Robert Shackelford has created this site so people can learn about cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, dental implants, esthetic dentistry, micro dentistry and general dentistry in Atlanta. There are tons of video and educational dentistry information located throughout www.askaboutasmile.com. Our main location is 3915 Johns Creek Court Suite 110 Suwanee, Georgia GA 30024, but many of our patients are from Atlanta, Suwanee, Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Cumming, Gwinnett, and Duluth, Georgia. We literally built a practice from the ground up with an emphasis on State-Of-The-Art Dental Technology, establishing lasting relationships and a high level of patient comfort. We know that there are a lot of dentists in Atlanta and Suwanee so we appreciate you taking the time to review our dental practice. We invite you to come visit our office and see for yourself how great dentistry can be. It's not the same old experience that it used to be.
