Throughout their more than 27 years of serving the Owensboro area, Dr. David Thompson and Dr. Vicky Frey have had the opportunity to help thousands of dental patients find relief from pain, prevent dental disease, and correct minor tooth imperfections. However, they will attest that the most fulfilling experiences they have been part of are the transformations that occur in patients who undergo cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Cosmetic dentistry helps patients restore their teeth to wholeness, unveil stunning whiteness, and radically restore their vitality for life. At Dental Designs of Owensboro, we offer patients a menu of procedures including Invisalign, tooth whitening, dental implants, same day crowns, porcelain veneers, and Six Month Smiles. For added peace of mind, all procedures can be performed using sedation dentistry.
Dr. Thompson and Dr. Frey share some insights into selecting a cosmetic dentist you can trust.
Review testimonials – Scout the dentists’ practice web site for real patient testimonials, such as are found at Dental Designs of Owensboro. Read their personal accounts and check out other unbiased sites like ReviewsM.D. and Vitals.com to see what others are saying and see how your dentists stack up against other cosmetic dentists you are considering.
See patient before and after photos – Take a look at the pre- and post-procedure patient results. A qualified cosmetic dentist should be very open to sharing the exceptional outcomes. Make sure the photos depict actual patients they treated and are not stock photos. At Dental Designs of Owensboro, patients have their professional portrait taken and are given copies at no charge. Many of these portraits are also displayed in our office, with patient permission of course.
Ask about dentist credentials and continuing education – Experience is more than a row of diplomas on the wall. Find out exactly what ongoing continuing education your dentist engages in, and ask how they keep abreast of cosmetic dentistry trends. Are they attending conferences and training? Dr. Thompson and Dr. Frey are board-certified by the Board of Dentistry of Kentucky and have completed a myriad of continuing education courses related to cosmetic dentistry, including a Six Month Smiles course, Invisalign course, soft tissue laser course, DURAthin Veneer Clinic, CEREC Intregration, and 3M Mini Implant certification.
Scope the office ambiance – Is the office inviting and relaxing, or cold and antiseptic? At Dental Designs of Owensboro, patients can sink into luxurious memory foam chairs, get comfy with pillows and blankets, and wear headphones.
