We know that choosing a dentist is an important health care decision, and we sincerely value your trust in us. Each member of our team is committed to offering patient-centered care based on proven technology and attention to detail.
We believe it is important to do our part in protecting the environment. Conservation measures we have taken include:
- Steam under pressure (autoclave) instrument sterilization methods, which do not use harmful chemicals;
- Waste filtration systems to allow safe disposal of old mercury fillings and prevent pollution of our water systems;
- Digital xray technology which requires less radiation than traditional film and does not require toxic xray developer and fixer chemical disposal into our water supplies;
- Recycling of non-patient metals, glass and plastic containers.
Staying abreast of current dental technology is important to Dr. Rodriguez; we rely on technology tools such as digital radiography to provide efficient, comfortable care for our patients. Read more about our Dental Technology.
