Concord Dentist Announces Return of Dental Assistant to Practice

CONCORD, CA--(Marketwired - June 30, 2015) - A Concord dentist who provides same-day crowns and restorations is welcoming back a dental assistant who recently returned to the office after a brief leave.

Amie, who has been a dental assistant with Robert I. Hlavac, Dental Corporation for more than 14 years, returned to the office this spring after taking nine months off. As a dental assistant, Amie assists Dr. Hlavac in daily dental procedures and has laboratory training in building long-lasting and beautiful restorations. “It’s good to see Amie back in the office working with patients,” Dr. Hlavac said. “She is such a wonderful person and has a knack for making patients as comfortable as possible during their treatments.”

In California, dental assistants are required to pass board exams in order to safely provide patients with dental radiography. Amie is also trained to assist Dr. Hlavac in general dentistry and restorative dentistry procedures. She works with every patient to teach them about the importance of oral health and the best oral health practices.

“Our patients love meeting with Amie to discuss their dental health,” Dr. Hlavac said. “She takes her time with every patient and makes them feel like part of the family.”

Robert I. Hlavac, Dental Corporation, 2817 Salvio St. Suite B, has a state-of-the-art facility with four operatories. Dr. Hlavac handles everything from general dentistry to restorations and emergency dental care.

Dr. Hlavac has invested in the latest technology to give his patients the most up-to-date care. He uses CEREC to provide patients same-day crowns; soft-tissue laser gum therapy; digital X-rays; DIAGNOdent cavity detection; ultrasonic scaler for dental cleanings; Vibraject to deliver pain-free injections; KoR Whitening Deep Bleaching to whiten teeth up to 16 shades; and Invisalign. Using Invisalign, Dr. Hlavac’s patients can straighten teeth without the embarrassment of traditional braces. The system uses a series of clear aligners that are typically changed out once every two weeks. Patients are encouraged to wear the aligners for 23 hours a day in order to achieve optimal results.

Dr. Hlavac prides himself on providing amenities that make patients comfortable in the chair. He uses a special iPad with programs that animate dental procedures to educate patients about their treatments.

Dr. Hlavac graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1986 and then graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry in 1990. He completed his General Practice Residency with the Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center in 1991 and has been a private practice owner since 1992. Dr. Hlavac’s office participates in CareCredit and accepts most major dental insurance providers.

After graduating dental school, Dr. Hlavac has taken countless hours in continuing education to provide revolutionary services like natural-looking porcelain veneers and Invisalign.
