RCCD – Single-Visit Dentistry for NC
One of the benefits of becoming a patient at RCCD is the concept of single-visit dentistry (or minimal number of visits) that we provide for our patients in North Carolina and beyond. We understand that your time is valuable. Both Dr. Williamson and his staff have obtained additional training and experience that allow us to make the most of the time you spend in the dental chair. This helps us accommodate patients who travel from other parts of NC or other states to receive their dental care from RCCD, but yet demand the quality of care that RCCD provides.
The ways that we promote single-visit dentistry in NC are:
- Latest technology – We use state-of-the equipment that allows us to assess problem situations with both speed and accuracy. Other technology that we use, along with intensive training in its use, allows us to perform restorative and cosmetic procedures with efficiency without sacrificing precision in our results. We do not use any technology that we believe cuts corners or delivers anything less than top quality results. Similarly, we do not use technology, products, or approaches for which long-range outcomes are not yet well understood. Be assured, however, that we never rush through a diagnosis; some situations will require that you return for a more extensive assessment and give us more time to provide a clear explanation of options available to you.
- Comprehensive dentistry – Our broader range of dental services (comprehensive dentistry) lets you bypass having to “start over” with another provider for many needs such as wisdom tooth extraction, treatment of gum disease, and orthodontics. Rather than your having to transfer records and wait to get a new-patient appointment with an orthodontist, endodontist, or periodontist, we can usually treat most conditions that might require you to go elsewhere. Schedules permitting, we try to make your appointment be a single-visit dentistry experience – by performing treatment of the condition when the condition is discovered when we can do so without compromising the quality of our work. For lengthier procedures, this may not be possible, but we are committed to trying to make it happen whenever we can.
- Sedation dentistry – RCCD has extensive experience in providing sedation dentistry services. RCCD was a leading Raleigh dental practice in passing certification requirements for providing oral conscious sedation in NC. (The NC State Board of Dental Examiners began enforcing new standards to verify proper training, experience, and equipment for providing sedation dentistry services in 2009.) For both restorative and cosmetic procedures that might otherwise require two or three visits, we can often perform the work in a single visit. Be sure to ask us about sedation dentistry as an option for your treatment – whether your need is to save valuable time or to enjoy the benefits of an enhanced smile sooner.
