At Palm Springs Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, the word “family” truly matters. The second you enter this office, you realize the entire staff is dedicated to providing a welcoming environment, helping to guide patients to make informed decisions about their oral health. Using the most up-to-date techniques available for patient comfort and comprehensive care yields exceptional results.
The family feeling is embodied in the two dental professionals heading up the practice, both of whom are new parents. Scott Shepherd, D.M.D., began practicing dentistry as a commissioned officer in the Navy and Public Health Service. He worked in rural health clinics, including remote villages above the Arctic Circle. As a partner in a Vancouver, Washington, practice, Dr. Shepherd participated in research and testing of new dental technologies and techniques. Sarah Enright, D.M.D., attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston. She continued her education at the Pankey Institute in Florida, training for complex dental cases, learning advanced TMJ splint therapy techniques, and expanding her skills in all phases of dentistry and surgery.
The extensive experience and training of these dental professionals along with the rest of the team ensures that every patient can expect quality care they can trust. When outside referrals are called for, the doctors work closely with a select group of top specialists to coordinate patient care seamlessly and effectively.
The office’s menu of services includes a full complement of repair and restorative options including root canals, extractions, bridges, dentures, partials, crowns, and tooth-colored fillings. They also specialize in veneers, inlays and onlays, as well as teeth cleaning.
Patients are especially pleased with services such as digital X-rays, which produce 90 percent less radiation than standard X-rays, and the intraoral camera diagnostic tool that provides an entire mouth view on a TV monitor that patients can see for themselves.
On the cosmetic menu, the ZOOM3 whitening service continues to be popular. Palm Springs Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is one of few practices in the valley to offer a new treatment — the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System, considered by thousands of dentists to be the most reliable and effective bleaching system ever developed.
At Palm Springs Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, patients are the most valuable asset. The practice encourages people to use its website — www. psdentist.com — to explore and learn as much about dentistry as possible to maintain optimal oral health.
