One of the things that we really value is using the most up-to-date techniques and that involves technology. We offer same day crowns. What that allows us to do is we get the tooth ready for the crown, but we're able to deliver the final crown the same day. It cuts out a whole appointment. It also cuts out impressions, temporaries, all that kind of stuff. Patients love it because it's a way more comfortable experience.
The crowns in the office are scanned. We have a wand that it takes an image of the tooth. We design the crown on the computer. With that we're able to get a great result. There's very little adjustment. The bite's great. It's a great thing. We have a milling machine that mills out the crown. With that we're able to cement it the same day.
I chose to become a patient of Dr. Kirchner's because after 25 years of working in the dental industry, I worked with Dr. Kirchner on a professional level for several weeks and watched him and his staff work. They work well together. They're knowledgeable. He is probably one of the best clinicians I've seen. I've seen hundreds. I have a great level of trust in him as well as his staff.
It's a pleasant environment. He's got the latest technology as well, which makes a big difference to me. He found a couple things that were going on. I've had issues ongoing for 3 or 4 years and been to several specialists. Nobody knew what was going on with 1 area of my mouth. He knew immediately and explained to me what needed to be done. He's treated it. It's better. It was a situation where I possibly could have lost a tooth. It was a pretty big deal to me. It was painless, quick. 2 appointments and I was done.
The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, upbeat. They help calm you down. They will answer your questions; always polite. Dr. Kirchner is very, very knowledgeable and does continuing education in certain areas that a lot of doctors are not necessarily required to do, which helps him diagnose.
I think the office is up to date on technology. It's clean. The atmosphere is great. I've had several crowns done, a couple fillings, cleanings, some gum treatment. Nothing has ever been painful, or uncomfortable. He's patient.
When you don't stay numb, which is what happens with me; I think I had to have several boosters of anesthetic to keep me numb, but he was very patient and made sure I was comfortable the entire time. I would recommend anybody from my family, any of my co-workers, anybody I know to come here.
If anybody's looking for a dentist and they'd like to know, I think I'm the one to ask after being in 97 practices. There are probably 50 close by within a 25 mile radius that I've been in. This is the one I chose.
Training is a great asset, but without the right equipment, it can be useless. Besides, a lot has changed in dentistry over the years. That’s why Dr. Kirchner has invested in some of the latest dental technologies at our Jeffersonville office. With our CEREC machine, you can get CEREC dental crowns the same day as your visit. We have a sterilization center to make absolutely sure our tools are completely safe. We also use The WandTM to deliver local anesthesia without a big, painful needle. We even have Invisalign and ClearCorrect “invisible braces.”
At Kirchner Dental, you are the focus. We are here to help you and make you feel like a part of our family. That means we go out of our way to ensure you are comfortable and well taken care of. You can choose from a comfort menu so your visit is relaxing. Warm towels, blankets, and an iPad with headphones can really make a difference. We also offer drinks and snacks in our waiting area, and we have massage chairs in all of our treatment rooms. If you are anxious about dental visits, all of our rooms have nitrous oxide (laughing gas) available as an option for you. If you need something stronger, we can offer oral medication as well. Our goal is to help you relax so you can get the treatments you need.
I think the biggest reason why patients should come to our office is that we provide a service and experience that's really unmatched. We make sure that everyone's comfortable, relaxed. It's a very soothing atmosphere. We use the best materials, we use the latest techniques and the latest technology, and so we're able to provide a level of dentistry that is really unparalleled in the area.
