Advanced Dental Technology
Advances in dental technology make dentistry increasingly comfortable and efficient. At Ponderosa Dental Center, Dr. Joshua Prentice has equipped our office with state-of-the-art equipment. From proven diagnostic approaches to planning for your dental implants and so much more, choosing a dentist who stays on top of the latest in the field ensures you receive the very best care. Patients from Bend, Redmond, and Sisters, OR benefit from our array of offerings.
In dentistry, it’s especially true that a picture is worth a thousand words. That’s why Dr. Prentice has invested in an intra-oral camera for patients of Ponderosa Dental Center. It’s a small tool that allows your dentist to capture images of your teeth and then immediately transfer them onto a screen right at your chair side. Along with clear, easy-to-understand communication, the intra-oral camera ensures that you’ll always leave our office completely informed about your treatment plan.
Traditional radiography has been allowing us to get a glimpse below the surface for decades, but these days, there is a safer, more accurate option. Digital x-rays give Dr. Prentice a more in-depth look at your teeth and oral structures, while also reducing the amount of radiation you are exposed to by as much as 85 percent. Digital files are also easily transferable in the event we need to refer you to an outside specialist.

The Cone Beam CT scanner captures an advanced look at your missing teeth and the jawbone surrounding the area, for the most advanced treatment planning.
