Office Vision We exist to turn the patient who “hates the dentist” into a “raving fan” of our team and practices. Established in 2009, Afinia Dental was created with our patients in mind. We exist for the purpose of serving…our patients, our community and— in the context of dental missions’ impoverished environments— the world. We are engaged in the continual process of creating a story for our practice that is both fun and exciting and that brings each of us personal fulfillment, joy, peace and freedom. Through dedicated people, ideas, and the use of efficient systems, we will develop a positive, nurturing and safe environment to grow and fulfill our needs both personally and professionally. This will be a place of mutual respect, laughter, clear communication, and teamwork in an atmosphere that is fun, energized and joyous. We will connect with our patients on a personal level and provide a patient experience that it is so incredible they will hesitate to leave our office for fear of entering into a harsher world. Our office will have a reputation for high quality treatment, being so gentle, safe and caring that we will draw patients from all of the best doctors in our area. We will enjoy every day to the fullest and live in each moment. Our office will be filled with laughter, pride, a sense of ease, and a calmness that allows us to provide a patient experience that is unsurpassed.

The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 50-year-old male asked:
SCM: You bet! Do a little research on the sternocleidomastoid muscle.
A 28-year-old female asked:
After the procedure: Eat: Soft foods...think yogurt and smoothies. You should be comfortable with ibuprofen. Some docs prefer to write narcotic pain killers. PS...If you start getting extreme pain after 3+days...you may have a dry socket. Go into your dentist for relief.
A male asked:
Go back: Sometimes food particles can get into extraction sites which can delay healing and cause a little post-extraction bleeding. Usually a gentle rinse with an irrigation syringe will flush out the debris and the area can start healing.
