Dr. Crawford bases his practice on prevention and early diagnosis. Pain and suffering caused by gum diseases, broken and worn teeth, oral cancers and cavities are largely preventable. Treatment for infection and disease is based on a philosophy of minimal invasive dentistry. Our goal for our patients is that they have a healthy and attractive smile. This has become a reality for the many people who have embraced the three mainstays of oral health: daily flossing and brushing, seeking regular professional care and maintaining a healthy diet and habits.
After taking the necessary radiographs or x-rays and completing a thorough oral examination, Dr. Crawford will discuss a variety of treatment options with you in your consultation. This is the ideal time to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding your options. Dr. Crawford and his staff enjoy their work and like sharing all of the aspects that modern dentistry has to offer. Many patients are quite surprised that their teeth are capable of being stabilized in a relatively short amount of time.
Dr. Crawford and his friendly, professional team enjoy working and living in Peterborough, Ontario. We want you to feel confident and comfortable when visiting the dentist. Our practice is housed in a gorgeous red brick building that was constructed in 1864. This is a setting that both our patients and our staff like to be in and around.
There are a variety of unique features about our office including: the awesome toy chest to make the kidsā?? visits more enjoyable. We are also situated on the Peterborough Transit bus line, which is convenient. We offer a high-end sterilization center and infection control procedures that are implemented for every patient and every procedure. Our facility is wheelchair accessible. As our staff believes in continuing education, we are learning new treatment methods on an on-going basis.
As well, we have installed an amalgam separator in order to remove the mercury from entering the water system when taking amalgam fillings out. Our office additionally offers an inside bicycle rack. We no longer require chemicals to develop x-ray film since we use digital x-rays. These x-rays require much lower amounts of radiation as well. All of our staff utilizes ergonomic chairs that have been specifically designed to reduce the amount of stress on the body. Lastly, our sinks are foot operated in order not to contaminate our hands by touching the taps.
