Simply put, there is no other dentist in the Powell, OH region that offers the level of expertise and care that Infinite Smiles does. Dr. Patel and his staff are on the forefront of dental health care innovation, combining state-of-the-art dental technology with compassion and understanding of the patient’s perspective. The experts at Infinite Smiles are guided by the belief that the possibilities are endless when you see dental care as an opportunity to enrich your life.
From the get go, one thing that was really important to me was to always, always be up to date. From technology to software, to the way we actually provide the treatment and the modalities in which we delivered care. We want to be known for providing a very high level of service for those patients who know they want access to the best, whether it's for you or your family members.
Dr. Patel built that environment where the technology is constantly being updated. It's the backbone of how we practice dentistry. We have everything from technology that allows us to provide service in one visit as it relates to fixing a tooth or replacing a tooth even with an implant. It's all done in one visit, but it's done with a method of using digital technologies, and that's really important.
At the end of the day, most patients know a few things. They know whether they were treatment like family, if the dentistry itself caused any discomfort, and in the mirror if it looks perfect. If we can meet all three of those things certainly patients are happy, but the reality is that there's a lot more that goes into it. When we can deliver results using computer technologies that allows us to deliver time after time, smiles, then that's a beautiful thing, and that's what we're known for.
Dr. Patel believes that technology fuels modern dentistry. He understands the complexities of using two unique technologies together, working seamlessly to serve the patient’s needs and to deliver amazing dental care results. Very few dentists in the U.S. are trained in the use of 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) with CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics), but Dr. Patel is. Using these technologies together allows him to construct a virtual 3D model of your mouth so that you can preview the dental care you are about to receive, and then the computer can guide the procedure.
Dr. Patel is also one of the innovators of “virtual surgery,” where both CAD/CAM and cone beam imaging is used to create a computer simulation of dental procedures. When these technologies communicate and work together, they produce nothing less than absolute precision.
Our doctors don’t just have this technology; they actually travel the world teaching other dentists how to use it. They are more than experts, so when you visit Infinite Smiles, you know you are receiving care from true innovators.
Sedation Options at Infinite Smiles
The caring staff at Infinite Smiles realizes that dental anxiety is very real and very common. That is why you have several options when it comes to sedation dentistry. Whether you get a little nervous or tense when visiting the dentist, or you are truly phobic and overcome by fear at the mere thought of dental care, Infinite Smiles can help you overcome your fears and reservations.
For lower levels of anxiety, we offer nitrous oxide to calm your nerves, so your experience will be more relaxing. For those with more overwhelming dental anxiety, we have an on-staff anesthesiologist to administer IV sedation and general anesthesia, so that you can sleep through your dental care completely unaware of the procedure.
Comfort and Hospitality
For pain and anxiety, first of all if you're not afraid of needles, there's something a little strange about you. I think everybody is afraid of needles. I think I'm about as afraid of needles as anybody, I really am very much ... I know it sounds strange to be a dentist to be a little dentophobic, but I am. I'm very understanding with that, I'm very patient with that, because that's what the dentists have been with me in the past, especially when I used to be that anxious patient. I understand it, I'll be there to help.
We go on the patient's pace, we make sure everything is pain free, before I even touch it. Everything has to be pain free, because that is what I would want. I treat the patient as I would want to be treated, and I'm a high stress patient, I'm a difficult to treat patient. I am, I have to admit that. I don't mind working on those patients, I don't lose patience working on that type of patient. It's perfectly understandable. I understand where they're coming from, and I work with them, just like I'd want to be treated.
When you enter the lobby of Infinite Smiles, you may think that you are entering a 5-star hotel, and that is by design. Dr. Patel wants you to feel nothing but comfort and ease when you come to the office for dental care. You will receive the VIP treatment as our courteous staff serves you from a full coffee bar and professional cappuccino maker, and offers you a pillow and blanket so you can relax.
We Provide What Our Competitors Do Not
I think what makes our practice different, first it has to start with the doctors. Dr. Patel lectures nationally, internationally, extremely well-known, really an expert in his field. Me as well, I had the opportunity, it's been a great opportunity. I lecture as well locally and I've lectured nationally on issues, as well. I think in terms of our experience and our knowledge base I definitely feel very confident that we can provide the best care. I really do.
Then you factor that in with the environment we've developed. We've gotten the quote from a lot of patients that this isn't very much like a dental practice. This isn't like a dental practice I've ever been to before. I know as dentist we shouldn't, but we take that as a complement that our dental practice does not look like a dental office. It's very open, lot of windows, lot of open light. Not that kind of claustrophobic feeling you might get at some other dental offices.
Then you factor that in with the technology. The technology we've invested in. The technology that we have I really think that's a really unique combination.
Other dentists will typically send you to a specialist to have your dental implants placed. Then, you will come back for a separate visit to finish the restoration. This means you are going to multiple locations, over multiple days, for one procedure.
Not at Infinite Smiles. We offer a true “Teeth in a Day” experience. Dr. Patel not only places the implants, he completes the restoration, all in-house in one visit.
Along with our own in-house lab, we have on staff a master ceramist, who is a Certified Master of Dental Technology, with an extraordinary amount of training. This level of expertise is simply unheard of for most dental practices, but at Infinite Smiles, it is the norm.
There is no one in the Dublin, OH area more qualified and experienced to provide the ultimate in dental health care than Dr. Patel and the staff at Infinite Smiles.
