Dentist Glenn F. Abbott II and Dr. Brett Brayley like helping people keep their smiles white and bright. At Windham Dental Associates, at 4 Commons Ave. in Windham, they treat their patients the way they would want to be treated.
Dr. Abbott is often heard telling patients that if the patient was his family member, he’d recommend this course of treatment, said officer manager Mladenka Logan.
“I enjoy the opportunity to get to know our patients,” said Brayley, who grew up in Standish. Working in Windham has been a homecoming to him. “It’s fun being on the cutting edge of implants. It’s nice to offer that sort of treatment,” he said.
Dentistry is always changing and Windham Dental is on top of the changes. From pediatric dentistry to treating the elderly, Windham Dental makes sure that they treat everyone equal and not pushy.
The services offered range from general dentistry, composite fillings, crowns, inlays, implants, dentures, some simple extractions to mouth guards, bleaching trays for teeth whitening and bridges.
The office is computerized and uses digital x-rays and a water laser for fillings. The water laser, affectionately called “Mario” for its fire red color, allows the dentists to fill filling without the patient having to have a numbing shot.
For the first appointment, the patient will receive an exam, x-rays and a cleaning. Windham Dental asks to have records transferred by the patient or they will call for them, said Logan.
If a patient is nervous about going to the dentist, the hygienists reassure them and explain everything to calm their fears, said Logan. “Both dentists have a calming effect,” Logan added.
The dentists recommend everyone brushes twice a day or after every meal and floss once daily.
“Flossing is the big thing people tend not to do,” said Logan. Cleanings should be scheduled every six months.
Hygienists in the office are Jennifer, Angela and Shauna. Becki, Janet and Hillary are assistants to the dentists. The office also boasts the fact that they have someone who speaks English, German and Croatian.
“We will go out of our way to work with people and their insurance,” Logan said. Windham Dental works with most dental insurance programs and accepts major credit cards, Care Credit and Citi Health Card. Logan said that the prices at Windham Dental are on the lower end compared to other offices.
Appointments can be requested online. The office is open Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. They can be found online at www.windhamdentalassociates.com or on Facebook.
