Cedar Falls, IA–Thomas J. Horak, D.D.S., P.C., a Cedar Falls dentist, is celebrating 31 years of dentistry experience. Dr. Horak maintains a strong desire to help people and communicates with his patients on a heartfelt level. He says compassion for each patient and the ability to connect to each patient is integral to continued success at his practice. His practice takes a team approach, involving the patient and the rest of the team, to solve any issues the patient may have and ensure the safest and most effective results are achieved.
There have been a variety of technological advancements within the dentistry field since Dr. Horak first started his practice in 1981. He says one of the greatest advancements in the industry has been the field of dental implants, which is one method of restorative dentistry performed at Dr. Horak’s practice. Some of the most significant changes in the process are that dentists no longer have to alter some of the adjacent teeth to accommodate for the replacement of missing teeth. Dentists can also secure dentures better and can replace single teeth with implants, creating longer-lasting and more stable results. Another advancement in the dental industry is the improvement of cosmetic bonding systems. Dr. Horak says the procedures done today provide unbelievable, aesthetic results for patients.
Dr. Horak says the experience gained since starting his practice 31 years ago is invaluable, and adds that he continues to examine a wide range of dental issue and problems, as well as the innovative solutions that arise. He says he can approach his patients and their needs with a different level of maturity and different set of eyes than when he first started at his Cedar Falls cosmetic dentistry practice. He says the patient should always come first and has adhered to this mindset since he started out.
