We love being in downtown Cleveland! Our neighbors are the area’s top attractions, from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Progressive Field, to the bustling West Side Market and Heinen’s. And we at Downtown Dental Services want to be your “destination” for complete, quality, non-judgmental, professional oral care.
Our team, led by experienced biologist-turned-dentist, Dr. Tony Lu, enjoys being in the middle of it all. There are many advantages. Workers in nearby offices can easily visit us without the appointment cutting into their day or schedule too much. Our office keeps weekday hours that align with many of the businesses that surround us. Additionally, patients that live in other neighborhoods can easily pop in and see us for the exceptional care that they trust, from professionals that they know, and then head out and see the sights. They can make a day of it! For those of you traveling by car to see us, there is free validated parking right across the street from us at Statler’s Garage. We have made every effort to identify barriers that stand in the way of our patients getting the care that they need to be healthy and happy. So, we have eliminated any sources of stress or hassles, including the seemingly little details that all contribute to your overall experience at the dentist’s office and partnership with us.
Dr. Lu has invested in many technologies and training on those technologies that support a gentle, painless, “fear-free” experience. These include non-invasive diagnostic tools such as iTero NIRI light-based cavity detection. Often, these technologies allow us to clearly see hidden decay that can go undetected for a long time. They aid in early, accurate diagnoses, which is necessary to promptly and effectively resolve the conditions at hand. Additionally, our team is skilled in the use of laser dentistry as an alternative to many common, conventional sources of dental fear, such as cutting tools like scalpels. When using lasers to treat diseased gums, for instance, we can gently disinfect and manipulate tissues. This light-touch approach to treatment minimizes bleeding and discomfort, for a more pleasant experience before, during, and after the procedure.
You can find several therapeutic options at Downtown Dental Services, which represent the “gold standard” in treatment. For example, we offer several advanced alternatives to conventional dental treatments. These sophisticated approaches are largely more discreet, cosmetic, comfortable, easy-to-wear and easy-to-care-for, and longer-lasting and durable than their earlier-generation counterparts. Such options include Invisalign® clear aligners that incrementally reposition crowded, crooked, and otherwise misaligned teeth. These aligners are also removable, whereas braces are “fixed” to the teeth and can only be removed by an orthodontist or other dental professional. For those individuals with restorative dental needs, Dr. Lu has extensive training in the placement of dental implants. Other dentist’s offices can only offer one aspect of the implants process: restoration. We can offer every aspect of this highly desirable tooth replacement option.
In addition to quality services that provide a great value for our patients, we are very conscientious of costs. We provide many payment options, including CareCredit® and the Invisalign® Lending Point financing programs. We also have an in-house Dental Savings Membership Plan. For one affordable, predictable annual fee, members get all of the preventive services that they need, as well as significant savings on other services. No maximums. No exclusions. No, wait. No hassle.
Contact us today to schedule either an in-person or “virtual” teledentistry visit. While we encourage you to reach out to us before you are in pain or have other symptoms, Dr. Lu makes himself available to his valued patients after-hours, or whenever emergencies arise. In fact, he even provides his personal cell phone number to patients. You can have the best of both worlds: “old-fashioned” relationship-based, personal care, and the latest and greatest technologies!
