If you’re like most people, getting ready for a major event in your life — whether it’s a wedding, graduation, anniversary, or other milestone — is a stressful time. Sometimes the last person you think about is yourself, and your teeth, even though your smile is going to be on parade through one photo opportunity after another.
An experienced dentist such as Dr. Donna Vagnozzi-Bucci of Pennington has many ways to make your smile a beautiful complement to the event you are celebrating. The time to take action is now, not at the last minute.
But for many people going to the dentist can be a dreadful experience! In fact, many people avoid going to the dentist unless they have a toothache. Even the sound of the drill unnerves them. If you’re one of those people, you should try Family & Spa Dentistry, Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci’s unique office in Pennington. They have a way of making dentistry a pleasant experience.
When you walk into the office you feel like you’re walking into a fine hotel. Instead of the usual smell of a dental office you get a scent of jasmine or lavender. There’s a fire glowing in the fireplace and the soothing sound of the waterfalls and soft music puts you as ease. The front desk staff are welcoming and invite you to have a beverage and/or fresh piece of fruit. You feel like you’ve just stepped into their home. New patients are invited to tour the office and are given an introduction to the clinical team. Once seated, patients are offered complimentary paraffin hand waxing, a warm neck wrap, aromatherapy, soothing eye mask and they can enjoy a mini neck and shoulder massage or heated massage pad. The experience is something you’ll want to tell your friends about.
The atmosphere and spa amenities are not the only advantage to visiting Family & Spa Dentistry. Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci and her team of dentists and dental specialists have over 25 years of experience. Their state of the art practice offers the most advanced dental technology and services. Preventive services include oral cancer screenings with Velscope, diagnostic services include digital radiography which emits 90% less radiation then traditional x-rays and DIAGNOdent, which is used to detect caries that are not seen clinically or on x-rays. “We use the DIAGNODENT to check suspicious areas like stain or even deep anatomical crevices on the biting services”, states Kim Cleary dental hygienist, who has been with the office for over 24 years. In fact, most of their staff have been with the office for 20 or more years.
They offer all phases of dentistry including basic fillings, crowns, root canals, and cosmetics such as veneers, whitening, bonding, porcelain crowns, Botox and dermal fillers. If you or a partner suffer from snoring or have a sleep disorder you can receive oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea and/or snoring. They have an endodontic specialist who does all of the root canal treatment and she relaxes her patients so much they often fall asleep in her chair. Their periodontist has extensive training in gum and implant surgery. He also performs wisdom teeth extraction. There’s dentistry for the whole family including orthodontics. Invisalign and traditional braces are both available.
Quality dentistry with a gentle touch has always been Dr. Vagnozzi’s motto and you can tell she enjoys dentistry when you meet her. “Creating beautiful smiles and helping people stay healthy and feel good is a priority to me,” she says. “New patients are welcome to call or just stop by for a visit. Our office staff will be happy to answer any questions they may have about dental procedures or dental insurance.”
