Latest Dental Tecnology In New Lenox | Nelson Ridge Family Dental

Healthier smiles & more comfortable experiences

Technology & Products

Technology has truly revolutionized the way we do dentistry. Lengthy, painful, and invasive treatments can now be completed easier, more comfortably, and with healthier results than ever.

VELscope® oral cancer screenings

Oral cancer is one of the deadliest forms of cancer, and rates are on the rise. We’re one of only 15% of dentists in the US that provides regular oral cancer screenings at every exam. We use VELscope technology to help us detect abnormal cells beneath the surface, so we can catch any potential problems before they progress.

Painless injections

We know the worst part of any dental treatment for many folks is the injection, but it doesn’t have to hurt! We use a topical anesthetic to numb the area before the injection, so you will hardly feel the prick of the needle. Our patients with a fear of needles love the way we provide painless injections to make them more comfortable.

You deserve the best.

Don’t settle for other dentists in New Lenox that don’t offer the latest and greatest technology. Schedule a visit with Dr. Etchison, Dr. Pycinska, or Dr. Eberhardt at Nelson Ridge Family Dental today!
