ST. ALBANS, WV -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/12 -- Warnick Dental in St. Albans, WV announced that the dental practice has launched a new website. The site, http://www.warnickdental.com/, is designed to educate patients about different dental treatments. The website features a "Patient Education" library highlighting different dental procedures, such as dental implants. The goal is to provide patients with reliable, accurate information on popular treatments, including Invisalign and teeth whitening, and to take the stress out of a visit to the dentist. Warnick Dental serves the Hurricane, Scott Depot, South Charleston and Winfield communities.
St. Albans dentist Dr. Melissa Warnick, along with her husband and Dr. Steve Warnick, announced that their practice, Warnick Dental, has launched a new website to serve patients. The dentists' goal is to raise awareness about common dental procedures and reduce the anxiety many patients feel about visiting the dentist.
"When it comes to visiting a dentist, many patients can experience severe anxiety," said Dr. Melissa Warnick. "Treatments like root canals or dental crowns can be understandably stressful for patients, especially if they are not sure what is going to happen. Our goal with the new website is to help patients relax by providing comprehensive information about our dental services. When patients know what to expect, procedures seem less stressful."
The new website includes a "Patient Education" library with information on common dental procedures. The 3D dental video library shows patients how a procedure like dental implants will be performed. The library also includes video demonstrations for proper brushing and flossing techniques.
"When it comes to providing pediatric dentistry, my goal is to work with young patients and teach them proper dental care from an early age," said Dr. Melissa. "But, prevention is the best treatment at any age. Proper flossing and brushing skills set the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health care. The 3D videos are an easy way for children and adults to learn these basics."
The website also features information on popular dental procedures, including teeth whitening and Invisalign treatments. Dr. Steve explains the difference between at-home teeth whitening and in-office whitening.
"At-home treatments are great for simple touch-ups, although they are not powerful enough to remove serious stains from smoking, coffee or wine drinking," said Dr. Steve. "I always tell my patients that for serious stain removal, in-office treatments ensure even whitening. The new website is a great resource to help patients explore their different whitening options and find a treatment that's right for them."
The dentists also encourage patients to learn more about implant dentistry and dental problems by visiting the website's dental blog. They frequently posts updates on the latest dental care treatments, as well as helpful at-home care tips.
Potential patients may also visit the website's "Smile Gallery" to see before and after photos from actual patients.
"There is no better way to see the difference that implant dentistry can have on a smile than to visit our smile gallery!" said Dr. Melissa. "I'm thrilled to be able to share these photos on our website so patients can see first-hand the outcome of different procedures, such as caps and veneers, Invisalign and dental implants."
Prospective patients may also use the website's new, online appointment request form to schedule an initial consultation with the St. Albans dentist.
