On your first visit to Murphree & Reed Dental, you can expect Dr. Steve Murphree or Dr. Davis Reed to come out to the reception room to greet you personally. The doctors and their entire staff want to make sure you feel welcome and comfortable, so you can ask the important questions and receive the kind of care that will give you complete confidence in your dental health.
Both Drs. Murphree and Reed feel it is important to really listen to their patients before providing any suggestions or treatment recommendations, so you will have the time to express your ideas and concerns and communicate what you are looking for. In this way, the doctors can help you arrive at the solutions that fit best for you.
During your visit, you’ll also enjoy comforts and amenities that will help you feel right at home. We’ll provide you with a warmed neck pillow and a blanket to wrap yourself in. Then can choose between listening to music or watching movies or cable sports programs on your own 50-inch, wall-mounted flat-screen television.
In addition, you’ll find that we work with the latest high-tech equipment to enhance the accuracy of both diagnosis and treatment. Our digital x-rays not only reduce radiation by up to 90 percent, making them safer, they are immediately available for the purpose of diagnosis.
Intraoral cameras help provide excellent visibility in areas of the mouth that would otherwise be difficult to see clearly, and they can provide up to 50X magnification. This also means you’ll be able to see what the dentist sees, so you can understand the need for certain treatments.
When you need an impression of your teeth, we’ll take a detailed digital scan instead, making the preparation for some procedures easier and less messy and time-consuming. And without bonding technology, many cosmetic and restorative procedures would not be possible. Advances in this technology have ushered in the age of all-porcelain and zirconia crowns and bridges, white composite fillings, and porcelain veneers.
