At Optima, our goal has been to establish a dental practice that follows the highest standards of care and uses the latest technologies to achieve such goals. With this goal in mind, we designed our office spaciously, maximizing patient comfort, and tried to be as transparent as we can to eliminate the fear and anxiety of the patient and parents. We wanted to be as green as possible, so we went fully digital on all our equipment and we are trying to eliminate paper prints as much as we can by utilizing state-of-the-art practice management software that would allow us to do so.
