We understand that a visit to the dentist may be a little stressful! To make your experience at Veranda Dentistry even more comfortable we are excited to offer massage with our licensed massage therapist, Ella Jenson, LMT. We are able to schedule 30, 60, 75, or 90-minute massages before or after your dental appointment. Ella is an Altoona native and offers Swedish (relaxing), deep tissue, and prenatal massages. She can be contacted or scheduled at the office at 515-266-3700 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The doctors at Veranda are always advancing to stay on the cutting edge of technology and collectively spend hundreds of hours each year at continuing education courses across the country to learn techniques to provide the absolute best possible care to our patients. Our latest efforts have been focused on incorporating 3-D printing into the practice. You may have heard about the ability to digitally design just about anything and then “print” or construct a three-dimensional product made of resin. If you haven’t heard of 3-D printing look it up on Youtube – it’s really cool stuff!
We are using this technology for multiple applications with an emphasis on creating surgical guides for dental implant placement. Using a 3-D scan of your jaw and models of your teeth we are able to construct a guide that allows for the perfect placement of your dental implant. We can plan and place an implant with the ideal location, depth, and angulation allowing for the most stable, esthetic outcome possible. Plus, the surgical guide allows us to be more efficient making the appointment shorter for you! This all results in a predictable, affordable tooth replacement in fewer visits giving you the confidence to smile proudly!
In order to best serve the community, we have extended our weekday hours and added the option to schedule Friday and Saturday appointments. We have three doctors available to serve you Monday through Thursday 6AM to 6PM and Friday and Saturday from 8AM to 4PM. These are limited, VIP spots so call now to schedule those weekend appointments – they’re booking up fast!
We have two birthdays this month: Dr. Emily on the 14th and Kylie VonHemel, RDH on the 17th. Be sure to wish them a happy birthday if you’re around the office! Or, visit our Facebook page to write them a quick note!
Wishing you a wonderful October from all of us at Veranda Dentistry!
