We Love Our Community!
The team at Northwest Dental Group is dedicated to being involved with the community in more ways than one. You might find us participating with the Good Samaritan Clinic, Dentistry From The Heart, Donated Dental Services, Mission of Mercy, or the Sperling Smiles Foundation. In February 2020, we took a trip to the Dominican Republic where we provided needed dental care and supplies to the people of the rural community of Punta Cana. Our team also sponsors several sporting teams in the area, and you might even see Dr. Post out there coaching!
The thing I enjoy most about working at Northwest Dental Group is the people. They really do become your family away from your family at home.
At the Northwest dental group we are so family-friendly. We have three offices available so there is always one close to where you are at. Our schedule is great for families as we start early and end late. We also have a lot of hygienists and a lot of doctors, so if you want to get your family all in at the same time we can accommodate that as well. And we're open on Saturdays.
It's family-friendly because we gear towards everyone in the family. We've got stuffed animals out there, a coloring station, with apples and water. Warm cookies, and just trying to make it a fun environment where they can walk in and feel safe, and feel like they are a part of our family.
Many people are very nervous about coming to the dentist and feel very uncomfortable, so we kind of specialize in those kinds of patients. We offer a comfort care menu that will make sure they are feeling relaxed. I learned a long time ago that I can easily help people comfort their anxiety without sedation drugs. Just the simple things like noise-canceling headphones so they don't have to hear the drill, nitrous or laughing gas so that my jokes are funny, it's just these little things that create a lof f comfort for our patients.
Invisalign is becoming the hot new thing and it's very easy to quickly with these retainers, change the way your teeth are, and how they line up. Say you have a date you want to go to, you pop them out and go to your date, and then opp them back in. So it's not like the whole metal wire braces where you have metal wire everywhere. This is a simple, easy, safe, effective way to straighten your teeth.
One of the things we really know well for here at Northwest Dental care is that if you call us in the morning we will see you the same day guaranteed. So if you wake up that morning and have a toothache or if you fall and break your tooth we can get you in and see that day and get you comfortable.
We really work to help those patients. That's our opportunity to make a difference in their life and get them out of pain. So if you call in the morning we will do everything we can to work with our schedule and to get you in that day and get you on the way to feeling better.
You know modern dental implants have changed the way we can give back confidence and a patient's ability to smile and feel good about themselves and to be able to eat and chew anything that they want.
We have several doctors who do dental implants at the office. Which is great because then patients don't have to go to a specialist to get that done.
Without question I feel like our doctors are some of the most highly educated, highly trained, doing some of the most advanced procedures in dentistry, and having this sort of group of us working together creates this environment to just be even better than that. You can't help but try and bring your best self every day. Everybody works really hard. Everybody shows sup, supports each other, and really has each other's backs, and I'm really proud of that.
Thank You, Rochester!
