At Arlington Dental Group, we take on a high level of responsibility for our patients. Our doctors pride themselves on a Complete Health Dentistry model to prevent dental problems from happening all while enhancing your overall oral wellness. We know that the mouth is the gateway to the body, and that you cannot have a healthy body without a healthy mouth. With this approach in mind, we educate our patients on the link between the oral health and whole-body health. We don’t just clean teeth and fill cavities; we help you to achieve complete health in every aspect of your dental care.

We know joining a new dental practice can be daunting for some. Our bright, crisp office is welcoming and comfortable, with amenities like a coffee bar and massaging treatment chairs. You will not spend much time in our reception area — we value your time and work hard to maintain a tight schedule.
As a practice that is committed to your complete oral health, it's crucial for us to get a thorough understanding of your health history, concerns, goals, and more. At your first appointment we will take a look at your medical history and listen to any concerns you have. We'll also take a variety of x-rays and will complete a comprehensive exam of your teeth, gum health, and overall health. Our team will share any significant findings and together we will decide what solutions you may benefit from. One of our hygienists will clean your teeth and can help get you set up for your next appointment. If you have any questions along the way don’t hesitate to ask! We’re excited to be here for you and to build long lasting relationships with our patient community.
When it comes to fostering a healthy mouth and body for our patients, investing in the latest advancements is absolutely crucial. In an industry that is ever changing and expanding, we’re not afraid to continue to learn and invest in technologies that better our patients' experiences and enhance their whole-body health.
With that in mind, we're excited to offer same day crowns using CEREC digital imaging and milling. That’s right, you get your permanent crown in a same day appointment. No temporary and no messy and uncomfortable impressions needed! We also use CBCT, or cone-beam computed tomography. This digital imaging system captures data about your teeth using a cone-shaped x-ray. In less than a minute, 150-200 images are captured from a variety of angles, giving us an in-depth 3D image of your teeth.
These tools and technologies not only make your appointment more efficient — they allow us to understand the full picture of your oral health all while providing top of the line treatment.
