The husband-and-wife team of Drs. Darren Tong and Mariliza Lacap has 20 years of experience in dental implants, cosmetic procedures, and orthodontics. Determined to make patients feel as comfortable as possible, the dentists and their team of seasoned hygienists, assistants, and patient coordinators first get to know patients by holding a Q&A session with each tooth before investigating them for decay and other issues. Each treatment comes with special perks, such as relaxing paraffin hand treatments. Instead of using drills, the dentists remove decay with quiet electric tools that reduce heat and vibration while conserving more of the patient’s tooth. To make sure decay is removed, the dentists follow up with laser therapy to zap away the final bits of decay that may remain. In addition to keeping adult teeth in tip-top chomping shape, the team also pays special attention to the youngest smiles with dedicated pediatric dentistry services.
