The 2016 Futuredontics dental patient survey report, What Dental Patients Want, summarized the views of thousands of patients across the United States about what they expect from their dentist. Dr. Dennis Nagata joined Dr. Christopher Chow and Dr. Herman Zampetti to form the Landmark Dental Group at the end of 2017; their new practice meets all seven key factors in this survey.
·Insurance – Landmark Dental Group works with many of the dental plans available in Hawai`i. Their professional office staff are experts in obtaining authorizations and submitting insurance claims.
·Convenience – This advanced dental facility is located at the corner of McCully Street and Kalakaua Avenue. It’s easy to access, has ample parking and offers a complimentary valet parking service during select peak hours. They also have a Biki Bikeshare location.
·Reviews – Patient reviews of the care provided by the staff—prior to and after the formation of Landmark—are available on the Landmark website. They include detailed descriptions of the care patients received and praise for the team.
·Technology – Dental care has improved dramatically through technological advances in dental equipment. The new office was designed and built with treatment centers engineered by the world-famous Dentsply Sirona dental company. Dentsply Sirona is the world’s largest manufacturer of professional dental equipment that provides better, safer and faster dental care. Landmark is the only all-Dentsply-equipped office in Hawai`i.
§Each patient chair offers enhanced comfort that includes a self-cleaning system that provides innovative infection prevention.
§Computerized guided implant surgery using 3D imaging for safe and effective implant procedures.
§Self-cleaning waterlines to prevent bacterial build up.
§Sterilization technique for not just infection control, but for infection prevention.
§Sleep apnea therapy for people who are intolerant to a CAP mask and are not using any device to prevent sleep apnea.
§Dr. Nagata uses the LightWalker Laser System to perform a wide range of soft and hard tissue procedures, including periodontal treatments and bone procedures. The Lightwalker Laser is a versatile dual-wavelength laser that decreases appointment duration, minimizes bleeding and swelling, reduces discomfort, lessens the need for anesthesia and provides faster healing and recovery. The laser is used to remove fillings and decay, perform root canals, provide periodontal treatments, complete crowns and veneers (in a single appointment) and treat oral lesions.
§Same-Day Crowns are created with Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic (CEREC). This Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology has revolutionized dental procedures that previously required multiple visits to complete. The office has several CAD tools and a milling machine that creates custom ceramic restorative devices. The CEREC biocompatible solution provides high-quality ceramic products in a minimally invasive manner. There are no temporary restorations needed which means there are fewer dental visits and less discomfort.
§Intra-oral camera, which is about the size of a pen, is used to see areas of the mouth that were previously impossible to view.
§Digital x-rays enable the immediate viewing and enlarging of images. They also provide a much lower exposure to radiation than traditional systems.
·Referrals from Trusted Sources – Patients of Landmark are quick to recommend them to their friends and family. Many Natural Awakenings readers are patients of Landmark and consider our magazine a trusted source for referral.
·Visibility – Dental Patients have stated that they want easy access to their accounts. Landmark Dental has a very robust web presence that enables patients to access their accounts and fill-out forms online.
·Making Patients Happy – The many happy reviews speak for themselves along with before and after pictures of the treatments performed.
