Our office is located immediately west of Poudre Valley Hospital. We have three treatment rooms, each computerized and stocked with digital radiography technology. We're very excited about this technology as it allows us to take higher quality x-rays in half the time while digitizing your pictures for safe keeping. In addition, this service has reduced the level of radiation exposure to patients.
To allow for better understanding, and to give patients a visual tool, we utilize an intraoral camera (a small camera that sees inside your mouth) to allow patients to see any possible issues Dr. Norris encounters during her evaluation.
Our consultations are provided free of charge and in the case of more complex treatment, scheduled for a separate appointment. We provide accurate cost estimates to our patients prior to treatment visits in order to prevent any unwelcome surprises and to help you plan financially. We encourage all patients to bring music to listen to on an MP3 device and offer nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, for our uneasy patients.
At Vinna C. Norris DDS, your safety comes first and our staff follows strict infection control standards for disinfection and sterilization as established by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Our staff is also trained in Basic Life Support for health providers. The use of digital radiography has reduced patient exposure to radiation to very low levels and we are happy to offer this service.
