Most dental offices are only concerned with their bottom line these days, so much so that they’ve forgotten the reason why they exist in the first place: to help people. At Old School Dental, we always put our patients first, and you’ll feel that from the moment you walk through our doors.
Located in Etna’s original schoolhouse from 1877, Dr. Staten’s goal for our practice is to combine the best of what’s old and what’s new to create the ideal dental experience. We treat our patients like family, and it will feel like you’ve known Dr. Staten and our staff for years even after just one visit. We offer all of the latest dental services your family could need now or in the future, and everything is performed using the latest technology to make it fast and comfortable.
If you’re ready to come experience “people-first” dentistry, Old School Dental is the place to do it. We’ll show you just how relaxing and fulfilling a trip to the dentist can really be, and you’ll have a healthy, beautiful smile to show for it!
We greet all of our patients by name and get to know them as people well before we start looking at their teeth. We’re all about personalizing everyone’s experience, so your appointments will be specially tailored to your wants, needs, and budgetary concerns. Our team members are longtime members of the local community, so we place a big emphasis on forming long and trusting relationships with our patients so they always feel welcome and comfortable whenever they come to see us.
Dr. Staten is a true craftsman when it comes to dentistry, and he takes tremendous pride in his work. His goal is to help every patient, no matter their needs, achieve a strong, healthy, and gorgeous smile that can be trusted to last for decades to come. This is why he takes his time with every procedure and leaves no detail unexamined. Thanks to his meticulous approach, he’ll help you spend less time in the office and more time simply enjoying your smile!
We’re all about making our patients feel comfortable during their appointments, so for those who don’t like the sounds of a dental office or need a little music to relax, we’re ready to accommodate. Our noise cancelling headphones will help you gently drift away as your appointments glide by, and before you know it, it will be time to go home. Imagine getting your dental work while listening to your favorite song. You can even make your own Pandora station you can listen to at all of your appointments!
Just because we’re old school doesn’t mean we don’t have modern creature comforts! Each of our treatment rooms has a 42-inch HD TV that you’ll be able to enjoy during your visits. You can cue up your favorite show or just get lost in what’s already on. Either way, it will help your appointments fly by faster and calm any nerves you might have. We also use them to show patients images of their teeth so they can be a fully-informed and involved partner in their dental experience.
Our motto is, “Where modern technology meets old school values.” We have some of the most advanced dental tools available today, and they enable us to treat patients in less time while keeping them more comfortable. Even better, using our intraoral camera, we can show you your smile from Dr. Staten’s perspective, finally taking some of the mystery out of your dental care. This will make understanding what we’re talking about nice and easy so you always know what’s going on during your visits.
