Chosen as One of America's Best Dentists in 2013, Dr. Stephen Seidler's Thriving New Practice Lives Up To Its Name: Sanford Dental Excellence
ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Though advancing technology and digitization has revolutionized dentistry in the decades since Dr. Stephen Seidler opened his first practice in Orange City, Florida in 1981, one crucial element of the patient experience has remained constant: most patients prefer not to be in a dental office.
But patients who come in for treatment at Sanford Dental Excellence, the thriving new Sanford, Florida based practice Dr. Seidler launched in October 2011, need not worry. Their dentist-designated as one of "America's Best Dentists," an honor issued by the National Consumer Advisory Board-is trained and licensed in IV conscious sedation, whereby relaxant drugs are administered to the patient, using specific protocols. Dr. Seidler monitors the patient's blood pressure, pulse, oxygen saturation and respiratory rates continuously to ensure that he or she is completely comfortable and reacting normally throughout the procedure.
A graduate of Georgetown University Dental School in Washington, DC, Dr. Seidler's over 2,000 hours continuing education throughout his career includes advanced study in implants, operative dentistry, crown and bridge dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, dentures, orthodontics, endodontics, periodontics, oral and IV sedation, and sleep disorder dentistry. In recognition of taking courses far in excess of what is required, he was awarded a fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry, an honor less than 5% of US dentists have achieved.
Dr. Seidler sets himself apart from the dentists with the "bigger is better" mentality, keeping Sanford Dental Excellence small and personalized, with no associates, and a staff dedicated to achieving superior customer service.
Dr. Seidler offers an expansive array of services which address all possible needs. In addition to complete general and cosmetic services, Sanford Dental Excellence also provides treatment for sleep apnea as well as adult orthodontics in six months or less. Specific services include traditional implants, mini dental implants (which are smaller in diameter than traditional implants, and replace missing teeth or loose dentures), non-surgical gum treatment, a six month braces program, all-porcelain crowns and bridges, tooth colored fillings, extractions, root canal treatment, complete "Facelift" denture services, sports mouthguards and emergency dental care.
Aside from Dr. Seidler's years of experience and expansive technical proficiency, he believes it is that personal attention that sets Sanford Dental Excellence apart. His state of the art office is designed to provide the ultimate in personal attention and comfort. Little amenities that Dr. Seidler includes to make the experience relaxing and comfortable include comfy pillows, blankets and light dimming glasses; soothing music that the patient can listen to through via the office iPod or a patient's own source with stereo headphones; a warmed towel when the patient is done; and the opportunity to enjoy juice, coffee, bottled water and more.
Dr. Seidler's road from Georgetown to his current practice in Sanford has involved some unique twists and turns. When he graduated from dental school in 1979, like a lot of rookie dentists, he didn't feel quite ready to immediately open his own practice. Opting to join the U.S. Navy, he was stationed in Orlando for two years in an environment that was like a traditional residency where he could learn from career military dentists who had different specialties.
After fulfilling his two-year commitment, Dr. Seidler opened his first practice in Orange City (near Deltona), "On faith and belief in myself and not a whole lot more," he says. "I started off with three chairs and one employee, by the second day I needed an assistant, after the first week, a hygienist, and it kept growing from there. Direct mailings were very helpful in attracting my first patients. Once patients were able to experience the level of care and personalized service I have always provided, word of mouth advertising has kept us busy from those early days to the present time."
After practicing in the same location for 30 years, Dr. Seidler decided to sell his practice and move to a smaller facility closer to his home. After an extensive search, he located a great location in Sanford, Florida only 10 miles from his previous location. This allowed him to provide his services to a new patient base while still allowing him to serve his patients from his original practice. In October of 2011, Dr. Seidler launched his new office, which would become Sanford Dental Excellence.
