Intraoral Cameras and Chairside Monitors

Digital X-Rays

Soft-Tissue Laser

Biolase diode laserWe use our Biolase® diode laser to recontour gums, remove overgrowths, and many other soft-tissue procedures. Reduction of bacteria and inflammation can often be achieved without the need for anesthetic.

Sterilization

In our sterilization station, we use state-of-the-art technology, including hands-free features and color-coded sterile and non-sterile units that meet or exceed OSHA standards.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer will be diagnosed in more than 30,000 patients this year. Five years from now, only 57% of those patients will be alive. 27% of oral cancer patients don’t smoke or drink alcohol. Rod Stewart, Sigmund Freud, Aaron Spelling, and even the Sultan of Swat, Babe Ruth, were struck by oral cancer. It’s a stealthy disease that often isn’t detected until after it has spread to the neck and lymph nodes.

ViziLite oral cancer screeningsBecause we’re interested in your whole-body health, we provide oral cancer screenings with ViziLite®, a revolutionary technology that can detect oral cancer in the earliest stages. When caught early, oral cancer can be cured in 90% of patients. Dr. Glerum and her team examine patients for oral cancer at every visit. Dr. Glerum’s office is one of the first dental offices in Palm Beach County to use ViziLite®. The screening is painless and quick, and it could save your life.

Zoom!® Whitening

Zoom! teeth whiteningZoom! Whitening dramatically whitens teeth in less than an hour. You can relax to music or a DVD while we brighten your smile up to ten shades. This is the same whitening procedure used on ABC’s Extreme Makeover, and it is the only one endorsed by the show’s host, Dr. Dorfman.

We believe that while healthcare is vital and necessary to the well-being… there’s no need for it to be uncomfortable. In fact, it should be pampered and downright enjoyable! That’s why we aim for total, complete, VIP 5-Star Service for you while in our care. Your comfort and personalized attention should come first.
