Sears Dentistry is located in City Centre shopping plaza. We are located in a great area where you can grab a bite to eat or do a little shopping around your appointment time. If you prefer to wait in the lobby we offer free Wi-Fi to our patients. We are a digital office so we have all patient records stored on a secure database. We utilize the newest technology when it comes to radiographs and therefore you are receiving a much lower dosage of radiation than in the past. We take intra-oral pictures and have screens in each operatory for you to view your problem areas. When not viewing images or x-rays you can watch your favorite shows to take your mind off of being in the dental chair.
We strive to provide the best care to our patients and therefore we only utilize new aesthetic materials that are the same shade of your natural teeth. We offer BOSE noise cancelling headphones if you want to drown out the sound of the dental handpieces and in our whitening room we have a television on the ceiling so you can lay back and relax while you are having your complimentary whitening session. our staff wants you to feel like you found a new dental home that you will be happy to return to. We want you to not only feel welcomed, but to feel like you are part of the family. Come visit us today!
