Patient Education

Patient Comfort: A Top Priority at Kauai Smile Center

Our office staff takes extra measures to ensure your relaxation at Kauai Smile Center. You will notice a friendly atmosphere the moment you walk through the door. We go the extra mile for patient satisfaction, including investing in technology to make your visit more enjoyable, efficient, and relaxing. During procedures, you may find comfort in the silence provided by in-house music system that plays a variety of songs. In fact, we reduce noise even further by using quiet electric hand pieces.

Efficiency at Every Dental Examination in Kauai

Maximizing efficiency means less time in the dental chair. We use digital radiography not only because it emits 80 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays, but also because it requires no processing time. An added convenience of digital X-rays is the ease of image transferring for specialty doctors or insurance claims. Panorex digital X-rays give Dr. Ishida a panoramic view of both your upper and lower teeth. Helpful for monitoring bone loss and detecting malocclusion, these digital images provide a variety of diagnostics. Also offering digital images, intraoral cameras let Dr. Ishida see into the hard-to-reach places of the mouth with minimally-invasive methods.

Patient Education for Optimal Oral Health

Digital imagery is not only convenient but also helpful for patient education. A chairside monitor displays the digital images from X-rays and intraoral cameras so that Dr. Ishida can explain diagnoses and illustrate treatment plans. In the reception room, you will notice a helpful assortment of educational brochures that clearly and concisely describes different dental conditions and the procedures we can use to treat them.

Systematic Diagnostics and Infection Control

Rest assured that at Kauai Smile Center, we use technology that offers thorough diagnostics and meticulous infection control. At your next dental examination, Dr. Ishida may use digital x-rays to detect cavities in their earliest stages. Thorough screening is vital so that we can provide the most minimally-invasive treatment options. Another advanced technology we provide is steam autoclave, which is a modern sterilization method that completely sterilizes all instruments and prevents harmful bacteria from developing in your mouth.
