Painfree ultrasonic gum treatment
Our hygienist uses the Cavitron ultrasonic wand to treat mild to moderate gum and periodontal disease by removing plaque, tartar and bacteria from the teeth, gums and below the gums. Even some advanced cases respond to this pain free, non-surgical procedure. She uses a high-pressure baking soda and water jet spray to remove plaque and stains.
Dental laser gum surgery
Dr. Schulz and his hygienist, Valerie, use the PulseMaster 600 IQ dental laser in his Gum Treatments and Laser Gum Surgery. Laser surgery is much more precise and creates much less bleeding than regular surgery. Less anesthetic is required, and healing time is much faster.

The traditional way to detect tooth decay was by touching the surface of the teeth with a metal probe. If the metal probe stuck, then there was a cavity.
Using DIAGNOdent laser technology, Dr. Schulz can detect early tooth decay without taking the chance of missing cavities. The laser probe detects even the smallest problems before they become large, and it does so painlessly.
Multi-media treatment rooms
Our treatment rooms are fully equipped with video screens and music. We offer our patients headphones during treatment, and they can be entertained by watching movies or TV while we work.
Dr. Schulz delights in having pediatric and octogenarian patients, and treating generations within a family. Building on the initial rapport established in 1982 and the quality of care that Dr. Schulz provides to his patients, many of Dr. Hall’s patients remain with him today. It’s important to Dr. Schulz that when he sees any patient outside his office, he knows them by name. He understands by building good relationships with his patients, he earns their trust; and that trust translates into more relaxed patients who maintain good dental care and are not afraid to visit the dentist.
