West End Dental Inc Reopening
West End Dental is excited to begin seeing patients safely. These are unprecedented times, and we want to reassure you that we have taken every precaution to ensure your safety and wellbeing during your visit.

We are limiting the number of patients in the office in order to maintain appropriate social distance. We ask that you provide your own face mask when in the office, use provided hand sanitizer, and that you come to your appointment alone unless accompaniment is required.

All patients will be screened with a contactless temperature check, pulse oximeter reading, and verbal questionnaire.

We ask that you understand that our provider's time is more crucial than ever and request that you be prompt to your appointment, arriving no sooner or later than your appointment time. Understand that if you cancel your appointment less than 48 hours in advance or are more than 15 minutes late to your visit, we will charge your account a $75.00 non-refundable fee.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during these unprecedented times. Please watch the video below for more information.

How does digital smile design work?

Posted on 10/28/2019 by Dr. James A. Krippaehne
It begins by taking photographs and scanning the teeth. Digital tools are used to create facially driven smile designs that account for personality, facial flow and treatment goals. These designs deliver predictable results and a unique patient experience.

Dr Krippaehne has been working with DSD app by Coachmen and the Digital Smile Design Planning Center in Madrid recently, focusing on smile makeovers utilizing digital smile design, a concept that uses new digital tools to create a smile design concept that can be used to obtain much more predictable results then in the past.

The concept allows for patients to take a test drive of their proposed new smile and see for themselves the results that can be obtained. The phrase copy and paste dentistry has been used to describe this technique. But it is only through these digital tools that a concept smile can be precisely replicated to deliver the exact same final result. Dr Jim is currently working on becoming a DSD Master. Further course work will take him to Sao Paulo Brazil in 2020 for the next residency in digital smile design.
We believe in educating patients about their treatment options and listening to their questions and concerns.
We focus on prevention so that you keep your smile healthy. We provide excellent comfortable care for all procedures.
