How is Waverley Dental Care different from other dental practices I can visit?

Besides being a state-of the art practice, Waverley Dental Care is a boutique-style office, emphasizing quality -- as opposed to quantity -- of care.

Can you show me how my smile will look before I undergo treatment?

Yes. Thanks to diagnostic digital photos and wax models in stone, patients can see where their smile is going. We will also discuss and review before-and-after pictures of other cases completed by Dr. Salibian.

Visiting the dentist is a little scary for me; is there anything available in your office to help me relax?

We try to make your visit to our office as comfortable as possible by offering a relaxing ambiance, free Wi-Fi Internet access, and LCD TVs in our waiting room. Patients are free to bring their iPods or other personal music players to each appointment.

Dental drills scare me. Is there anything else you can use?

We use state-of-the-art electric drills, which are much quieter than conventional drills and allow for shorter visits because of their precision.

There are so many dental procedures, such as crowns and dental implants. How will I know what's right for me?

We will take the time you need to discuss all of your treatment options during your first visit. Dr. Salibian will describe recommended procedures to you with the help of advanced educational software.

Do you have any advice for breath that is bad even after daily brushing?

Brushing your tongue is the first place to start. Many types of bacteria that can cause bad breath live on the surface of your tongue. Our hygienist may also recommend breath-freshening products to help you conquer halitosis.

How do you ensure patient safety in your office?

All of our patients fill out a comprehensive medical history form, and we use digital X-rays to significantly reduce radiation exposure.

Do you offer any flexible payment options?

Payment options are always available upon request.
