As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Our office is one of the most state of the art facilities in the area.

Plastic barriers on the chairs, x-ray heads, light handles and cameras are changed for every patient. The entire handpiece is sterilized for every patient and our sterilization room is open for your inspection
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Every patient treatment room is totally private. Sliding doors provide privacy during your consultation and treatment plan. We abide by all HIPPA laws; giving you relief that any disclosed information will be personally handled in the utmost professional manner.
Digital X-Rays: Our office is equipped with the latest technology in digital radiography/x-ray. Dental x-rays or radiographs are very important. They allow the dentist to see things about your dental health that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Digital x-rays have many advantages when compared to film based machines. These advantages include:
- Reduced radiation exposure
- Enhanced ability to refine image quality
- Instant viewing "No waiting for films to develop"
- Enviromentally friendly "No toxic chemicals"
Best of all, it is easy for you to see what Dr. Leifeste sees. Your digital x-ray can be seen on a computer screen located next to your dental chair. This helps you understand your needs and make an informed choice about your treatment.
Technology: Every treatment room features fully interactive DVD systems that can provide audio and visual demonstrations of every dental procedure for your education. Every treatment room has a tiny camera that goes into your mouth and helps communicate directly to you the problems that you may have and helps us see the quality of work magnified 28 times on a TV monitor! For your maximum safety, these cameras have clear plastic cover barriers that are changed after every patient. We have chair mounted TV's with the option of movie viewing so you can watch during your dental care.
Leifeste Dental has the artistic and cosmetic skills necessary for those patients who require extensive dentistry or for patients that need just a simple cosmetic enhancement. Implementation of these skills and technologies can improve your health and dramatically revitalize your appearance.
