Change how your family views dental care.

We understand that for many, a trip to the dentist can feel daunting. But what if we told you it doesn’t have to be? Imagine a dental experience where your kids are calm and even excited. At Metro East Dental, this isn’t a dream—it’s our everyday reality. We’re here to revolutionize the way your family views dental care.

Focusing on a stress-free and family-friendly experience, we prioritize your family’s oral health in a safe and welcoming environment. No more fear of the dentist chair, no more anxiety-filled waits. Instead, we offer an experience that’s as enjoyable as it is easy.

What does it mean to offer a family-friendly dental experience?

A family-friendly dental experience is more than just a catchphrase for us at Metro East Dental—it is the core of our philosophy. Maintaining oral health should be a comfortable journey for everyone, regardless of age. Our commitment to a family-friendly experience stems from recognizing that early dental experiences significantly influence one’s dental hygiene practices.

Here are four ways we practice a patient-first approach in our office.

1. Warm and Welcoming Environment

From the moment you step into Metro East Dental, you’ll be welcomed by a warm and inviting atmosphere that instantly puts you at ease.

We designed our reception area for comfort, with cozy seating areas and uplifting decor that appeals to patients of all ages. Our check-in process is also streamlined to be stress-free and efficient. You’ll be greeted by our friendly and accommodating staff, who are always ready to assist you with the paperwork and answer any questions you may have. We understand that each patient is unique, so we prioritize catering to individual needs, including helping kids relax.

But the family-friendly atmosphere continues beyond the waiting room. Inside the treatment room, our state-of-the-art facilities are designed to provide a relaxed ambiance. Our staff takes an empathetic approach, explaining each procedure clearly to dispel any fears or anxiety about the treatment.

2. Advanced Technology for Efficient Care

Metro East Dental continually invests in the latest dental technology to deliver efficient, high-quality care. Advanced digital diagnostics, including 3D imaging, allow us to diagnose and treat oral health issues precisely with a degree of accuracy previously unachievable. This technology facilitates early detection of cavities, infections, and oral cancer and minimizes patient discomfort by reducing the need for invasive procedures.

Our commitment to modernizing your dental experience doesn’t stop there. We also utilize CEREC technology, which revolutionizes the process of getting a crown. Rather than multiple visits and a lengthy wait for a lab-manufactured crown, CEREC uses 3D scanning and on-site milling machines to create custom ceramic crowns in a single visit. This means less time off work or school and more time to enjoy what matters most to your family.

Additionally, our practice employs other innovative tools to enhance the dental experience. From ultrasonic scalers for gentle yet effective plaque and tartar removal to intraoral cameras that allow us to show you precisely what we see, we aim to make dental procedures as smooth and transparent as possible.

3. Clear Communication and Education

Clear communication and education lie at the heart of a genuinely family-friendly dental experience. We don’t just provide dental treatments; we engage in detailed discussions with each family member, from the youngest child to the most senior adult, to ensure they understand the importance of maintaining oral health and dental hygiene.

Our dental team is passionate about educating parents and children alike on best practices for oral care at home, and we provide easy-to-understand explanations of proposed treatment plans. We encourage questions and address all concerns before moving forward with any procedure. This open dialogue fosters an environment of trust and confidence, ensuring that every family member feels informed, reassured, and ready for their journey to better oral health.

4. Family Appointments and Scheduling Convenience

We understand that today’s families lead busy lives, and scheduling separate appointments for each family member can be overwhelming. That’s why we offer the convenience of family block appointments, allowing all members of your family to receive dental care at the same time or back-to-back. This approach vastly simplifies scheduling, eliminates the need for multiple trips to our Granite City dental office, and minimizes stress on parents. We also maintain flexible scheduling options to accommodate unexpected needs or last-minute changes.

We aim to provide a family-friendly dental experience that harmonizes with your lifestyle and scheduling needs, while prioritizing each family member’s oral health and dental hygiene. We’re here to make dental care a seamless and convenient part of your family’s routine.
