Nottingham Dental has one of Katy’s best board-certified dentists, so that’s a huge reason for you to schedule an appointment.

Dental Membership Program

Nottingham Dental is affiliated with all of the country’s leading insurance providers so you don’t have to pay for all the treatments out of pocket. We also help you get one of the best insurance coverage possible. But, in case you don’t have insurance already, we provide a Dental Membership Program so you can avail of affordable preventative dental care anyway.

With this program, you get two teeth cleaning sessions per year, unless you have periodontal disease. You also get two routine oral exams and cancer screening per year, one emergency exam per year, if necessary, free teeth whitening after cavity filling, and x-rays. Additionally, you also get a 15% to 25% discount on all dental procedures and products.

State-of-the-Art Technology

In the past decade, technology has advanced at an unprecedented rate and its impact has been felt in all walks of life, including dentistry and healthcare in general. Technological innovations have transformed dentistry and given rise to various dental procedures that didn’t exist earlier or weren’t very accessible.

Nottingham Dental stays abreast of the latest developments and changes in the field of dentistry. Our clinic is equipped with the latest technologies and equipment such as intraoral cameras, digital x-rays, 3D imaging devices, and lasers for soft and hard tissues.

Using these technologies offers the following unique benefits:

  • Laser technology has transformed almost all dental procedures and treatments. With a laser, dentists can now treat dental issues without any surgical operation, without scalpels, incisions, or sutures. Laser devices use immense heat energy to alter your soft and hard tissues without causing any discomfort. You don’t even need anesthesia. Furthermore, they’re a lot more accurate, effective, and there’s no downtime after the procedure.
  • Imaging devices are far more effective at diagnosing dental issues than traditional dental mirrors. Devices like intraoral cameras give dentists a complete visual look at your oral cavities while 3D imaging scanners give them a 3D colored model of your face, neck, and teeth. If there’s an anomaly, they can immediately spot it.
  • In addition to diagnosing the dental issues, imaging devices also help you get quicker insurance coverage because you have visual proof.
