Dr. Jane L. Dodson and her caring staff maintain and beautify smiles with a gentle chair-side manner in an office lush with sunlight and plant life. They keep patients relaxed and apprised through detailed explanations of each procedure, and the lobby's flat-screen TV plays educational videos. Children can play with in-office kaleidoscopes, and their parents can stock up on gallons of alkaline water, effective for balancing the body's pH or making lemonade milder. Advanced dental technologies sharpen Dr. Dodson's practice. Intraoral cameras capture accurate, up-close shots of individual teeth, and digital x-rays reveal hidden goings-on without exposing patients to the radiation doses characteristic of traditional x-ray equipment.
