Raleigh Dental Care – For New or Relocating Patients

If Raleigh, North Carolina is an area where you’re thinking of relocating or seeking dental care, here’s some information that may be of interest to you with respect to the level and types of dental care you can expect to receive at Raleigh Comprehensive and Cosmetic Dentistry.(RCCD).

An Emerging Model for Dental Care

Many Raleigh dental care patients are now benefitting from the progressive thinking of Dr. Robert L. Williamson III, a graduate of the prestigious UNC School of Dentistry. Raleigh Comprehensive and Cosmetic Dentistry offers a broad range of dental care services under a single roof. Because Dr. Williamson has undergone the appropriate training, his Raleigh practice is able to provide an additional range of dental care services, sometimes referred to as Comprehensive Dentistry. Yet another set of dental  skills and qualifications allow Dr. Williamson to offer an additional subset of dental care services – Cosmetic Dentistry – that includes many elective options aimed at improving your smile.

This emerging dental care model allows us – the dental care practice most familiar with your dental care history and potential apprehensions – to provide needed services (such as wisdom tooth extraction, periodontal treatments, root canals, and orthodontics) in a familiar environment. This also helps to eliminate some of the anxiety that some patients may have experienced if they had to seek outside, specialized dental care services before becoming a patient at Raleigh Comprehensive and Cosmetic Dentistry. Of course, we do refer any extremely complex case to an appropriate dental care counterpart who is an expert in that very specific dental care issue and whose skills may be necessary in that particular situation.

One More Important RCCD Dental Care Option

Last, but by no means least, you need to know that Dr. Robert L. Williamson III is one of the few dentists in Raleigh who is authorized to practice Sedation Dentistry. As of June 2009, less than 3% of Raleigh dentists and less than 3% of North Carolina dentists were accredited to administer the type of sedation dentistry that our practice makes available to you. To ensure patient safety with the growing popularity of sedation dentistry, the North Carolina Dental Board put new sedation dentistry accreditation rules into effect in July 2009. The options we provide facilitate your comfort during any type of treatment – from routine exams to more lengthy treatment procedures.

Hopefully, this wide range of dental care options that we are qualified to deliver to patients in our Raleigh office helps to communicate that comfort, convenience, and quality of care are all equally guiding principles for Raleigh Comprehensive and Cosmetic Dentistry. It’s also the reason that many patients are willing to travel from areas both near and far in North Carolina – and even other states – to receive their dental care from us.

Dental Care Accessibility and Quality

For those who may be relocating, you should be aware that Raleigh dental care is far more accessible than it is in much of North Carolina. While the state as a whole ranks very poorly in dentist-to-patient ratios, the availability of dentists in Raleigh exceeds the national average. Nevertheless, patients of General Dentists who need to refer routine specialty needs to outside providers may have to endure waits at times, in spite of painful conditions.
