Dr. Shlom is awesome!! He always writes a personal “thank you” note after my treatments & the office staff are professional & friendly…P.S. –the mint-scented gas masks are the best!
VELscope – Patient Education
What is VELscope?
At Waterford Family Dental Care, we are concerned with all aspects of your dental health – including oral cancer. The VELscope system uses an award-winning handheld scope that allows your dentist to visualize abnormalities in the mucosal tissues of your lips, mouth, and upper throat. In just two minutes, without rinses, stains, or discomfort, a VELscope examination helps dental professionals improve their assessment of your overall oral health.
How Does the VELscope Work?
The VELscope uses a blue light to stimulate molecules (called “fluorophores”) deep within the layers of mucosal tissues. As a result, the fluorophores emit their own light (fluorescence) in shades of green, yellow, and red. The VELscope’s proprietary filter makes visualizing fluorescence possible by blocking blue light that is reflected, enhancing the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue.

Dr. Shlom and the staff are very patient and knowledgeable. He was extremely patient, calming and quick with my nervous son’s tooth extraction. I love the atmosphere and the care that my child receives here.Lynell McKay Doyle
Honestly the best dentist around i have seen all 3. Although you may have to wait it is well worth the time spent! They have helped me over come so many fears and helped me get back on track with a healthy oral lifestyle! Love each and every one of the staff!Chelsea Stothers
I got some work done on Monday. First time visit. I was not expecting to get the work done that day at all! Dr. Shlom and his team were great! I got my mail today and received a hand written letter from Dr. Shlom saying I did great and hoped I wasn’t in too much pain. Also if I needed anything to give him a call. Let’s just say he now has my husband and I as clients for life!Heidi Tottingham
I was terrified about all the Root Canal stories. As mine was going on, the Doc stopped & I asked how much longer (waiting for this so called pain) & he said “We are done”! I was amazed. They worked with me on payments, are always friendly but unfortunately, I have moved out of the area & have NOT got my teeth cleaned & will not do so until I can get to this place…….I have had to many issues in my life with Dentists & now I found a GOOD one, I will wait! Thank you all & hope to see you soon. S.K.Shawn Bird-Kowalske
Great dental office, have been going there for years. My wife has gone there since she was little and now our kids (8 and 6) go as well. And they have no fear of going to this office.Terrence Williams
