As your family prepares for the start of a new school year, there’s one thing our entire team at Randolph Dental Care would like to remind you about: a back-to-school checkup. Now may be the last time you can bring your son or daughter in before the new school year ramps up and the holiday season arrives, so don’t miss it.
What to Expect from a Back-to-School Checkup
During your child’s back-to-school checkup, Dr. Goldstein will thoroughly examine your child’s smile for signs of common oral health conditions. As part of that exam, our Randolph office will use a variety of advanced technologies and techniques the make the process easier and more precise.
One of the tools we’ll use is DIAGNOdent. As we first explained in our post from April 30, DIAGNOdent is used to spot signs of decay early, before they have a chance to worsen. To do this, it uses a laser light to compare what we find with a healthy baseline, making it possible to spot decay before we can even diagnose it with just a visual exam.
Of course, everyone—dentists included—wish there was a way to get rid of decay completely, but that’s a long way off. So until then, DIAGNOdent is the best tool that Dr. Goldstein and dentists like him have to protect smiles of all ages from developing a serious problem with tooth decay.

In our post from April 30, we talked about a unique tool called DIAGNOdent that’s making it easier for Dr. Goldstein and his team at Randolph Dental Care to detect and treat tooth decay early, as result, making dentistry more comfortable and more efficient.
But DIAGNOdent isn’t the only tool that’s helping us do all this. Our high-tech office in Randolph features other great tools that are improving dentistry, whether by making treatment quicker, more comfortable, or safer. You can read about some of these tools below:
With 3D CT scanning, Dr. Goldstein can take high-quality, 3-dimenionsal images of your smile, improving our ability to diagnose and treat a wide range of dental health conditions. Adding a 3D CT scanning machine to our Randolph office has truly improved our ability to help our patients.
We know how distressing dental drills can be for some patients. That’s why, at Randolph Dental Care, we’ve started using air abrasion when treating patients with tooth decay. Air abrasion doesn’t produce the sounds or sensations a drill does and is actually a faster, more comfortable, and more conservative tool.
Have you ever wished you could have an entire crown procedure finished in a single visit instead of two or three? CEREC makes that possible. Using our CEREC machine, Dr. Goldstein can design, mill, and place your crown in just one visit to our Randolph dental office, eliminating the need for temporary crowns or for multiple appointments.
Oral cancer screenings are important, but often, oral cancer isn’t diagnosed until it’s visible to the naked eye. By then, however, the disease may be too advanced to effectively treat. But with ViziLite, Dr. Goldstein can see what the naked eye can’t, letting him diagnose and treat oral cancer during its earliest stages, when treatment and recovery are still possible.

A revolutionary tool is helping Dr. Goldstein detect and treat tooth decay earlier, when it can be almost impossible to detect with the naked eye. It’s called DIAGNOdent. With it, Dr. Goldstein is able to quickly and easily examine teeth for signs of decay where it can hide, along fissure lines or inside biting and chewing surfaces.
DIAGNOdent works by using a fluorescent light to compare the reflection wavelength of teeth against a healthy baseline. What this means for patients is simpler, shallower fillings that preserve more of the tooth’s natural structure.
That’s what we call conservative dentistry.
The aim of conservative dentistry is to help patients keep as much of their natural smile as possible, and for as long as possible. DIAGNOdent is a unique tool that’s helping Dr. Goldstein do that every day.
If you’d like to find out more about how DIAGNOdent is helping us, call our Randolph dental office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Goldstein. We serve patients from Randolph, Rockaway, Mendham, Chester, Morristown, Denville, Morris County, and beyond.
