Dental procedures are enough to spook even the bravest of patients, but mention having their blood drawn, and they turn white as a ghost.
Meet Maria Llova, our talented phlebotomist, who will turn your blood fearing experiences into those of the past. Maria’s technique and gentle demeanor instantly set our patients at ease.
When we propose treatment such as Alloderm® (gingival grafting) and extractions, we always recommend the use of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). PRP is one of the most effective methods of reducing pain, diminishing bruising and accelerating healing during extraction and grafting procedures. The amazing properties of your own blood help the patient heal at an enhanced rate.
This process involves a small blood draw so that we may harvest the magical platelets from the patient’s own blood.
Next time the need arises for grafting or an extraction and PRP are planned to enhance your healing, no need to fear. Maria will be here. With her expertise and Dr. Dayan’s skills, you are in the best of hands.
