Safe Dental Treatments for Families in Florence and Northern Kentucky

As part of our commitment to providing safe and effective cosmetic, restorative and general dentistry to our patients, our dental practice is mercury-free and eco-friendly.

Mercury-Free Dentistry Means No Amalgam Fillings

At Independence Family Dentistry, we do not use amalgam (silver) fillings for our cavity treatments. Most metal fillings, including amalgam fillings, contain up to 50% mercury. The FDA does not recommend amalgam fillings for pregnant women or children under six, but at Independence Family Dentistry we do not recommend amalgam fillings for anyone. We use only safe, durable materials such as tooth-colored composite fillings and natural-looking porcelain crowns.

Eliminating Paper Waste with Paperless Charting

Independence Family Dentistry is an all-digital office. We use paperless charting, meaning that all of your information is digitally stored on our computers. Paperless charting makes it easy to store and access all your information, as well as transfer X-rays and charts to other medical professionals as needed.

Enhancing Patient Safety with Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays are the safest form of radiography available, and Independence Family Dentistry is proud to offer this technology to our patients. We place sensors in your mouth to take detailed images that are sent directly to a computer. Digital X-rays allow Dr. Nakhla to view your mouth in a variety of ways that make diagnosis easier and more accurate. Learn more about digital X-rays.

Upgrading Patient Comfort with Laser Dentistry

At Independence Family Dentistry, we utilize laser dentistry for a variety of soft tissue procedures. Laser dentistry is another form of advanced technology we use to ensure eco-friendly dentistry and to provide efficient, comfortable service to our valued patients. Get more information about laser dentistry!

Reducing Carbon Footprints with Dental Technology

We've invested in the latest dental technologies, which reduce the number of visits you need to complete treatments. The less time you spend driving to our office, the lighter everyone's carbon imprint. Equipment and products such as  Invisalign clear braces combined with our digitized processes ultimately means that you'll spend a lot less time in the dental chair.
