What Our Patients Say About Us
Excellent care! I have nothing but great things to say about my experience here. The dentists are great and my assistant was extremely competent and knowledgeable. Very modern approach utilizing new tech. They also have wonderful patient communication skills which made signing paperwork a more comfortable experience for me. Would I recommend choosing Omni Dental Shadyside? Yes, I would.
Love Omni! I am currently a graduate student and I have moved around a few times since college. I haven't always had the best experiences with dental offices, many times feeling like I was being charged but didn't know why or what was happening. The people at Omni however made it a great experience, being friendly, funny, knowledgeable, and really making sure I knew what was going on with my dental hygiene. Plus, they have a dental plan which was helpful for not having dental coverage. 10/10 recommend.
This dentist was friendly and made me feel comfortable. Their focus was on creating a healthy environment for my geriatric care plan and goals and listened to me while creating this plan moving forward in my life now. I am happy with Omni dental services. I recommend Omni Dental to everyone.
After switching dentists every few years, I was so happy to have found Omni Dental Shadyside. Dr. Hanlon and the entire staff quickly earned my trust and have consistently provided amazing care and service. They really seem to care about transparency and communicating well. I always leave my appointments feeling heard and confident I got the best care. Thanks guys!
Keeping up with technology isn’t just trendy; it's vital to your health and comfort. The latest in dental technology helps us conclude procedures faster, with more accuracy and less pain. High-tech instruments and processes also produce less waste, which provides a benefit to the entire planet. Here are some examples of how we use cutting-edge technology at Omni Dental.
Cone Beam Technology
Dental cone beam CT scanners produce a three-dimensional image of your jaws and surrounding anatomy. This imaging is invaluable for the purposes of placing dental implants. It creates three-dimensional images (called “volumes") in exquisite detail, which allow Dr. Hanlon to accurately and effectively place implants. If necessary, this technology can be used to create 3D-printed implant guides for an even greater level of precision.
Although conventional medical CT scans use a relatively large amount of radiation, our dental cone beam CT scanner delivers a much lower dose for your safety and long-term health.
Injection of conventional local anesthesia can be uncomfortable. This isn’t ideal, since the purpose of anesthesia is to prevent pain! At Omni Dental, we use buffered anesthesia to help eliminate this problem. As compared to conventional anesthesia, buffered anesthesia has a pH much closer to that of the your body, so the burning sensation during injection is greatly reduced. Even better: since it starts out closer to the body’s natural pH, buffered anesthesia begins to work faster and is more effective!
If you’ve ever had impressions taken of your teeth, you know it can be unpleasant. No one wants foul-tasting, messy goop filling their mouth. Now, there's a better alternative that eliminates the need for any physical material.
We’re thrilled to introduce our iTero® Element intrarol scanner. An Omni Dental team member uses the iTero®’s wand to capture the surfaces of your teeth, taking thousands of pictures per second. The computer system then assembles these photos into a complete 3D image in real time.
Interested in Invisalign®? Receive a complimentary full-mouth scan from our iTero®, and you can watch a video simulation of how the clear aligners will straighten your teeth.
Digital impressions are fast, pleasant and clean. On top of that, they’re actually more accurate than traditional physical impressions. That means you get better fitting crowns with fewer remakes, all with increased comfort.
