Serving the Community
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." Colossians 3: 23-24
Leveraging Technology for Superior Care
To provide patients with the most advanced services, Dr. Herrington has integrated several tools and techniques into treatment. For accurate diagnosis and planning, he uses digital x-rays and a cone beam computed tomography (CT) scanner. He also uses VELscope®, a laser analysis tool, for oral cancer screening.
When addressing periodontal disease, Dr. Herrington incorporates dental lasers for gentler, more efficient treatment. Following LANAP® protocol, Dr. Herrington can eliminate infected tissue with reduced bleeding and a faster recovery time than the traditional scalpel method. To accelerate healing, he can apply tissue stimulating proteins and platelet-rich growth factors to the surgical site.
