Suzuki DMD & Associates Family Dentistry: Let Us Put a Smile on Your Face

By  0 Comments

As an established dental practice located on South Ham Lane, Suzuki DMD & Associates Family Dentistry is well known throughout the Lodi area as an excellent place for cosmetic and family dental care. Dr. Yusuke “Clark” Suzuki and the Suzuki DMD & Associates team welcome new patients and they are proud of their reputation for providing outstanding patient care.

Proudly serving the communities of Lodi, Stockton, Galt, Valley Springs and Lockeford, Dr. Suzuki has more than 20 years of experience in all areas of dentistry; his staff is made up of a compassionate team with over 40 years of experience. A veteran of dental medicine, Dr. Suzuki earned his doctor of dental medicine degree from Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. In 2008, he moved to the Lodi area and began working at Dr. Bradford Dickey’s practice, assuming ownership soon after.

Wide Spectrum of Care
Since day one, Dr. Suzuki has endeavored to provide a standard of excellence in personalized dental care. This well-respected practice offers residents all aspects of dental care, preventive dentistry and treatment including sedation dentistry, periodontal treatments, children’s dentistry, root canal therapy, extractions, porcelain crowns, TMJ/TMD treatment and dental emergencies. His office also provides a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry such as dental implants, porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers, onlays and tooth whitening.

It’s no secret that many people are apprehensive about visiting the dentist. Dr. Suzuki and his dental team work to ease those fears by focusing on patients as individuals. They listen to their goals, help them understand their dental condition and reveal what treatment options are available. For patients who experience dental anxiety, sedation dentistry offers an innovative way to provide a safe and anxiety-free dental visit. Sedation dentistry is often mistakenly thought to induce sleep, but in fact most sedatives allow the patient to stay awake during the procedure. This allows Dr. Suzuki and his team to accomplish more during each visit with little to no side effects to the patient.

Individual Attention
“We recognize that our patients are unique individuals who have placed a great deal of trust in us,” Dr. Suzuki shared. “That is just one reason we value each and every patient relationship. Skill and compassion go hand in hand when providing exceptional patient care along with the desire to never stop learning about oral health. I work very hard to stay up to date on the latest advancements in dentistry in order to provide the most current treatment options to our patients. We strive to always provide the quality dental services that our patients deserve.”

Education is another important component to providing an enhanced dental experience. Dr. Suzuki and his team provide a wealth of information to their patients to help them make more informed decisions about their oral health needs; this includes oral cancer awareness. Routine oral cancer screenings are encouraged since early detection is important. There will be 41,000 Americans diagnosed with oral cancer this year, resulting in 12,500 deaths. The death rate from oral cancer is especially high due to late discovery of the disease, and the prognosis is more positive with early detection. Dr. Suzuki and his team are dedicated to providing this potentially life-saving procedure for all who walk through their doors.

Creating Health and Happy Smiles
“Building a foundation of trust by treating each of our patients as a special individual is vital to our success,” Dr. Suzuki concluded. “We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing patients with excellent, personalized care and services to help make their visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Our patients’ smiles are our first priority.”

The practice also continually focuses on how it can best treat patients of all ages. This includes offering flexible appointment times for working parents that begin as early as 7:30 a.m. and go into the evening hours of 8:00 p.m. “We understand our patients have busy lifestyles and we do our best to make it easy for them to get the dental care they need from this practice,” Dr. Suzuki added.

Whether it’s providing services for patients in need or practicing preventive dentistry with Central Valley residents, exceptional patient care is always a top priority. Dr. Suzuki and the team at Suzuki DMD & Associates Family Dentistry firmly believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience healthy teeth, a beautiful smile and a confident outlook on life. ■
