About Our Office

Our process of diagnosis

Developing a treatment plan using co-diagnostic dentistry means that we understand that more goes into your dental treatment decision than a simple diagnosis. Mount Rose Dental focuses on your needs using the latest in dental technology to ensure that your diagnosis is as comprehensive as possible. We take the time to educate and show you precisely what you're looking at, going through the risks and benefits of treatment so that you are part of the process. We want to make sure that each step you're taking makes sense for your individual oral health journey.

X-Rays & Models

We will take the absolute minimum number of x-rays needed to establish a diagnosis. In the process of dental implant planning, we may need to send you out for three dimensional scans. In some cases stone models of your teeth will be helpful in planning your treatment.

Treatment Philosophy

Respect for our patients' autonomy, which suggests that patients should be allowed to freely decide the course of their own treatment, is a fundamental principle of our ethics. We want you to have the knowledge and freedom to make informed decisions on what treatment options are available to you and the benefits and risks of each option. We use high-quality materials and superior labs to ensure optimal results that will positively impact you for a lifetime.
