At our practice, we focus on providing the newest in dental technologies. We built a brand new practice in 1979 to meet the needs of our patients and to incorporate these new and state-of-the-art devices to improve diagnostics, treatments, and patient care.
At Virtue Dental Care, we are able to offer our patients same day restorations thanks to our CEREC technology. The CEREC device allows Dr. William Virtue, DDS, AGD, FIAOMT, DNM to digitally create restorations such as crowns, and veneers, which are used to restore and rejuvenate patient smiles. Other dental practices require the dentist to send these molds to an outside laboratory for the creation of the patient’s restoration, which can take weeks to complete. Instead, patients can come to Virtue Dental Care and enjoy same day restorations thanks to the technologically advanced machines available in our practice.
Sometimes it is easier to help patients understand their dental care by showing them. Intraoral Cameras are installed in our practice and can be used to show patients what needs to be done to their smiles so they can better understand the need for treatment.

X-rays are essential in patient treatment and diagnostics. They allow dentists to see the patient’s bone structure, tooth placement, and anything that may affect their procedures. It offers an “inside look” at what is going on in areas that are otherwise not visible or apparent during a physical examination. They are conducted during new patient examinations, before surgical procedures, and to diagnose problems that are happening under the gum tissue. They are used before root canal procedures, dental implants, and orthodontic treatments.
Dr. William Virtue, DDS, AGD, FIAOMT, DNM, of Virtue Dental Care, is proud to offer digital x-ray technologies for his patients and provide a safer alternative to conventional film x-rays. This is just one of the many state-of-the-art devices used in our practice, and provides higher quality care for our patients who expect the best!
