Newly established in 2021 by Dr. Mariel Petruk, Tarpon River Dental is the leading practice to serve all neighbors and friends of the greater Fort Lauderdale community. This new state of the art dental facility was designed to make its patients feel like they are relaxing at home. You will access an ample reception area with comfortable seating and a beverage center to grab a cool drink and view plenty of tropical foliage. Once inside the treatment rooms, the comforts continue; with ceiling mounted televisions to catch up on your favorite shows during your procedure, individualized radio stations if you prefer music, as well as additional blankets and pillows. We strive to ensure your comfort.
The technology we chose to incorporate puts our patients first. Digital x-rays minimize radiation exposure, allow for rapid diagnosis, and eliminate fumes from the ambient air. Cameras in every treatment room allow you to see your teeth the way that we see them, so that together we can make the best decisions for your oral health. We also have plans to continue to upgrade and incorporate the best equipment and supplies, such as an intra-oral scanner that would eliminate uncomfortable impression molds. We strive to continue improving ourselves!
Patient comfort is not the only place where thoughtful design was implemented. As an associate dentist, Dr. Petruk was astounded by all the waste that one dental office produces each day, and vowed that when opening her own office, it would be as environmentally friendly as possible. An amalgam separator was installed to prevent any extracted silver fillings from entering our delicate water system. A dry vacuum system was installed in order to conserve water, and new impact windows and doors placed to reduce our energy use. Wherever possible, autoclavable stainless steel instruments are used as opposed to single use disposable plastics. We believe these decisions can have a sizable impact.
Tarpon River Dental is a place to feel confident about your oral health while doing good for the community. We invite you to stop by and ask for a tour!Call Us: (954)-787-6469
