"Amazing dentistry. Every employee was not only professional but friendly and kind as well. Dr. Kim and his assistant Zinnia in particular were exceptional, easing the nervousness I feel about dentists from bad childhood visits. They'll absolutely be my go to for dentistry work for as long as I'm in the cove area."- D.M. / Google / Sep 10, 2021

"I called Friday morning to ask for an appointment for a tooth extraction and I was shocked to be offered a same day appointment and the person I spoke to was INCREDIBLY nice. I read that they did payment plans and they had great reviews so I figured, well I’m desperate so I’ll give it a try. The clinic was only a short drive for me and when I got there I didn’t know what to expect. The lobby was nice and the staff were welcoming. The online registration was easy and when I got lead back to meet the dentist I was really appreciative of how incredibly kind and sweet she was. I explained to her my history and I was treated with the utmost respect and understanding. I didn’t feel judged at all. For patients without insurance in the aftermath of a pandemic and job losses and insurance cancellations; it meant the world to me to not feel shamed. This was the absolute best experience I’ve ever had and I will be back and will definitely highly recommend them. Thank you Ace for the compassion!!"- A.M. / Google / Aug 21, 2021
"I had tooth pain after biting down on something hard. It last for days. I called for an appt. They were able to get me in the same day. I got xrays and a cleaning by the DDS. No cavity and pain resolved after cleaning. Walked away 90 minutes later with a $20 fee for a fluoride treatment. Happy day & great customer service!!"- T.N. / Google / Aug 20, 2021

Types of Dental Technology
The experienced dental professionals at ACE Dental of Cove are trained on the following innovative dental technologies to make your trip to the dentist easier:
- Digital dental x-rays: Digital x-rays give us extremely detailed images of your teeth and bones with less radiation than traditional x-ray films.
- Intraoral cameras: This wand-shaped camera is about the size of a pen, and it allows us to take pictures from inside your mouth so we can investigate areas of concern, such as enamel wear, plaque and tartar buildup, or cracked teeth.
- iTero digital impressions: An alternative to messy bite-mold impression trays, this scanner quickly takes comprehensive images of your mouth in order to provide the same information without the mess.
- Cone beam CT scans: Just like a normal CT scan gives doctors information about what’s going on inside your body, our cone beam CT scans can capture 3-dimensional images of your teeth and jaw to diagnose multiple dental issues.
How We Use Advanced Technology
These cutting-edge dental technologies are used whenever they can be beneficial in your dental treatment to give you a better idea of your family’s dental requirements and options for their care. iTero digital impressions allow us to be more precise when creating dental restorations (like crowns or bridges), orthodontic treatments (such as Invisalign), cosmetic solutions (like veneers), and so forth. Digital x-rays are taken before routine preventive sessions and to diagnose specific dental problems. Cone beam CT scans can be used to plan complex dental work, like sleep apnea treatments, wisdom tooth extraction, and dental implant placement. Intraoral cameras give the dentists and patients a better view of individual oral problems, offering a clearer understanding of your dental needs.
What to Expect With Dental Technology
Each member of our dental care team is trained on how to use these sophisticated technologies. Before we use one of these technological advancements in your treatment plan, we will thoroughly explain the process and answer any questions you may have. These solutions make it easier for us to diagnose oral health problems and offer more comfortable treatment for you and your family members. They make dental care more efficient and may even reduce the time you spend at the dentist.
Insurance Coverage for Dental Technology
Many dental technologies are covered by your dental insurance. Before we begin, a member of our insurance team will contact your insurance provider to find out about your particular coverage and what your potential out-of-pocket expenses will be (if any). If you don’t have dental insurance, ACE Dental of Cove accepts many methods of payment, and we can help you with low-interest financing to make your dental care affordable.
