Alpharetta Dental Practice
After practicing for 16 years in a well-respected multi-specialty practice in Buckhead, Dr. Hedlund has opened a dental practice in the Roswell/Alpharetta/Norcross area of North Atlanta. Dr. Hedlund has served Atlantans and many patients from around the country for over 20 years. In her new location, she will be able to care for your comprehensive dental needs with even more personalized attention and affordability.
As the name of our dental practice implies, we provide esthetic solutions for your dental needs. This means that we select materials for your mouth that mimic the durability, color, texture and shape of natural teeth. We are able to do this for the smallest tooth-colored filling up to even the most complex full-mouth reconstruction. In addition, we are dedicated to accurately diagnosing why your mouth is in its current condition and how it got there. We feel that one of our strengths is taking the time to listen to our patients, investigate the causes of the oral condition and help them explore the best long-term options and solutions.
There are many reasons that our smiles can appear less than ideal: teeth showing discoloration and chips, age, malocclusion or crooked teeth, tooth grinding, and ongoing medical conditions — just to name a few. Dr. Hedlund received her DMD degree from the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry. This was followed by an advanced general dentistry residency and two cosmetic internships at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas. In addition, she has earned Fellowship and Mastership status in the Academy of General Dentistry–a distinction shared by less than than one percent of dentists in America. She relies on the foundational knowledge from her dental training, current dental research, ongoing professional continuing education and years of experience treating patients within an interdisciplinary practice. These aspects of her background all combine to enable her to help patients prevent dental problems and receive accurate diagnoses and treatment of their dental conditions so that their smile restorations will last for years to come. Our goal is to help you obtain and maintain a beautiful, healthy smile through comprehensive esthetic dentistry.
To aid the team in providing the best possible care for you, we employ the latest technology available from digital radiography (emitting 90 percent less radiation than conventional x-rays) to computer-delivered anesthesia that ensures more comfort and accuracy. Our team also utilizes intraoral cameras so you are able to see what we see — up to 100 times life size. Our intraoral cameras are equipped with fluorescent imagery to aid in the early detection of cavities and allow for less invasive, more precise cavity preparation. In addition to state-of-the-art technology, we offer many patient comforts to make your time with us relaxing and enjoyable. When you step into the reception area, you may help yourself at our complimentary refreshment center and enjoy fresh hot and cold beverages and healthy snacks. You can also unwind to soothing music by the sounds of the waterfall feature. As you enter our treatment area, you will notice the cloud-filled skylights and individual television and headsets at each chair. Finally, if you prefer complete relaxation, you may request nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”).
But none of these comforts compare to the personalized care you will receive from our experienced team. With more than 130 years of experience among them, you can trust that you are in the most capable hands. They offer a level of skill and proficiency that only comes from years of broad experience in the practice of dentistry. Continuing our tradition in the Atlanta area, our goal is to provide you with the best customer service and the absolute best dental care, exceeding your expectations whenever possible!
Our mission statement: We are committed to building lasting relationships with our patients while serving them with integrity and the highest quality of care possible in a manner that honors God and preserves the quality of our family lives. We are dedicated to continuing education and creating esthetic smiles for our patients that will provide them with optimal health and ideal function for years to come.
