Dr. William P. Scruggs • Dr. Anthony L. Molina • Dr. Paul E. Scruggs
NC Prosthodontic Specialists – Dentures, Implants & Crowns, is a comprehensive, specialty dental practice that specializes in the restoration and replacement of missing teeth with natural-looking, well-fitted, comfortable prosthetic teeth. Prosthodontics also encompasses both cosmetic and implant dentistry. As specialists, we provide our patients with their complete oral health care needs from regular hygiene cleanings by our Registered Dental Hygienists to complex restorative dental cases and ongoing maintenance.
As Prosthodontists, Dr. Paul Scruggs, Dr. Anthony Molina and Dr. William Scruggs, have each obtained certification in dental Prosthodontics, having attended an additional two to three years of advanced education after dental school at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry at Chapel Hill. This extra post-doctoral training and education provides them with the skills for restoring optimum function and aesthetics for their patients’ smiles.
Prosthodontics is one of nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA)
Our primary goal is to restore our patients’ quality of life as quickly and efficiently as possible. All three doctors have vast clinical experience in complex dental restorations and implant placement. Most of our patients, who range in age from adolescents to adulthood, are referred to us by other doctors who recommend us as specialists for complex dental cases.
NC Prosthodontic Specialists – Dentures, Implants & Crowns, is one of the few dental practices in the state that has its own fully equipped, on-site dental laboratory operated by Certified Dental Lab Technicians. Our laboratory consists of state-of-the-art dental technologies including one of the most advanced computer-aided design and manufacturing systems (CAD/CAM) in the field of dentistry. This highly detailed technology ensures proper strength, comfort and fit when replacing one missing tooth or multiple teeth.
THE BENEFITS OF AN ON-SITE DENTAL LABORATORY FOR OUR PATIENTS
- Immediate, “Same-Day” Temporary Teeth Delivery: As specialists in the field of restorative dentistry, and in collaboration with our on-site dental lab technicians, patients can be assured that in most cases they leave our dental practice with provisional (temporary) teeth until their final restorations are fabricated (especially post-surgery). Patients are put to ease knowing that although temporary, the teeth are both functional as well as esthetically natural-looking.
- Natural-Looking Teeth: Our on-site dental laboratory provides the highest quality of restorative results by allowing the doctors and the certified dental technicians to work together reviewing every step of the fabrication process. As a result, both esthetically and functionally, the finished product is a natural-looking, comfortable tooth (or teeth) that look and feel great!
- Expeditious Delivery: Since most of our dental restorations are fabricated in our on-site dental laboratory, it expedites the delivery of the prosthesis to the patient.
- Extensive Inventory of Parts: We stock an extensive inventory of denture and implant parts that are available for immediate delivery to patients who require ongoing prosthetic and implant maintenance.
In addition to providing the optimal dental treatment results, we also place great value on the total patient experience in our office, from creating a calm and friendly environment to making every effort to accommodate personal schedules during the treatment process.
Our dental team consists of both administrative and clinical professionals that have extensive dental education, training and experience. They are personally selected by the doctors to ensure the best, most efficient, friendly experience for every patient during their visit to our office.
Patient satisfaction, comfort and trust are key elements that we value as a top priority in our dental practice. As a result, patients rave about their exceptional dental treatment experience and repeatedly refer us to their friends and family members.
We look forward to your visit!
