Precision Dentist

When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Drs. Galasso, Feldman, Landolt, Coelho and their staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.

Many dentists use air-driven “hand-pieces” (the dental term for “drills”). While acceptable for many procedures, these “whiney sounding” air-powered hand pieces all have a degree of non-concentricity; they do not rotate perfectly smoothly.

For the most precise aspects of restorative procedures, we use electric hand-pieces. This results in extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration (crown, veneer, or filling). This will bring more comfort to you as well. With a more precise tool, there is less vibration and less noise.

Digital X-Rays:

Drs. Galasso, Feldman, Landolt and Coelho choose carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.

Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal.Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you. Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.


Drs. Galasso augments his injection technology with a machine called The Wand, a computerized release of local anesthetic that, when used in more difficult areas to inject, result is significantly less discomfort that traditional injection techniques.
We also provide Nitrous Oxide for conscious sedation to any patient that benefits from its use, along with the conventional local anesthesia. (See next page.)
If required, we can provide a licensed and certified anesthesiologist to provide full sedation. This would benefit patients with high anxiety levels for complicated surgical procedures. Please discuss this option with any of the doctors when reviewing you planned treatment.
