Bell Family Dentistry uses the latest state-of-the-art dental technology to bring exceptional care to our patients.

We have the experience of 37 years working with different technologies continually evaluating, adopting and using them in the cases where they will work the best. We utilize the below technologies because they have been proven to provide the best results and the most patient comfort.

Digital X-Rays
We use Dexis digital x-rays and the most current protection techniques to achieve the best quality images to diagnose and discover problems while reducing our patients exposure to radiation.

Digital Impressions
Using a Cerec video camera to image your mouth we can “take an impression” without all the mess or gagging discomfort of impression materials.

Intraoral Cameras
We have intraoral cameras which allow you to see what we see and enable us to monitor and record situations in your mouth more closely. This allows us to educate you, take a more conservative approach while at the same time insures you insurance company can see what we see.

CAD/CAM Single Visit Crowns
We have the ability to make crowns in our office enabling us to insure quality and offer one visit convenience to our patients.

Air Abrasion
Air abrasion allows us to restore small cavities without the use of a drill.

Communication
We utilize the most current technologies including text and email to communicate with our patients and keep them informed.

We employ the latest anesthetic techniques and anesthetics to insure the comfort of our patients. Not every anesthetic works for every patient. We find the anesthetic that works.

Difficult times like these test our patience, character and faith in everything. As always our focus is to provide you with safe, quality, professional dental care. Over the years we have become like family, we are here to help. We are all in this together, and although we anticipate some difficult times ahead, we have been through crises before: inflation in the 80’s, the crash of “89, 2008 recession, SARS, and H1N1. Perhaps this seems worse at this time, but as with every other crisis, we can and will work together to help each other survive.

We realize the inconvenience of canceled appointments and the resulting potential for increased dental problems. The ADA, CDA and CDC have urged us to suspend all non-essential procedures and to only provide emergency care at this time. As soon as we are able, we will open the office to provide you the care you need. If you have a problem or question please call us at 760-729-8500 so we can help you determine the best course of treatment. Also, this will enable us to contact you as soon as we can begin seeing patients. Thank you for your patience, your forgiveness and your understanding.
