While teeth are one of the strongest parts of your body, keeping them healthy isn’t always easy. Besides brushing, flossing and using mouthwash, regular dental visits are vital to a healthy smile.
BrentCourt Dental Group, the oldest ongoing dental practice operating in Brentwood today, uses modern technology, patient education and a team known for their expertise and gentle care to optimize their patients’ dental health.
“We are a locally owned general and family dental practice that has served East Contra Costa County with exceptional care for over five generations of practice ownership,” said Dr. Craig Chlebicki of BrentCourt Dental Group.
Chlebicki, who is originally from Huntington Beach, California, completed his undergraduate degree at Cornell University. After graduating, he was commissioned as an officer in the United States Navy, serving a total of five deployments, including three to the Persian Gulf and one humanitarian mission to the Philippines. After the Navy, Chlebicki obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of the Pacific.
In addition to Chlebicki, Dr. Christopher Charles and Dr. Michael Lin are part of the team of dentists at BrentCourt.
Charles, who followed in his father and older brother’s dentistry footsteps, graduated from the University of the Pacific’s Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry as part of the Dental Honors Society. He is known to tailor treatments to each individual’s needs and has a passion for serving the community.
Lin, who also completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, went on to complete a year-long advanced education residency in general dentistry in Oakland. Lin’s approach to dentistry stems from his belief in treating patients as he would his own family and in working with them to find solutions to any of their needs, whether it’s relieving pain or improving their smile.
“Together we are committed to meeting all of your dental needs and to providing you with a dental experience that is comfortable and pleasant each time you visit us,” said Chlebicki.
To help them achieve this, BrentCourt Dental Group offers the benefits of state-of-the-art dental technology, including cutting-edge tools, equipment, techniques and materials to ensure their patients receive high-quality, gentle dental care.
“Our dental practice has made many investments in technology that most people cannot see, but are present to improve patient care, patient safety and workplace safety,” said Chlebicki. “These include water treatment and purification systems to ensure clean treatment water. We’ve recently added three new top-of-the-line sterilization units.”
BrentCourt Dental Group also continually invests in the industry’s latest advances, such as cybersecurity systems to protect patient information, and technology that helps relieve anxiety for patients who dread visits to the dentist.
“The fear of the dental office or certain dental procedures is a real concern to many people,” said Chlebicki. “We try to make the entire visit, from the initial phone call to the time you leave the office, as relaxing as possible.”
To create a relaxing experience, BrentCourt has televisions in every treatment room; team members provide gentle care while often checking in on patients to ensure they are pain-free; rooms have natural light to minimize the feeling of being in a doctor’s office; and patients can request nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Finally, educating patients about dental health, treatments and options helps to reduce dental anxiety.
“We look at ourselves not only as healthcare providers but also as healthcare educators,” said Chlebicki, “educating and answering any questions a patient may have about treatment and/or prevention.”
Combining all these elements results in happy, healthy smiles for their patients.
“They are amazing,” said patient and Walnut Creek resident, Deanna Frederickson. “Every single person is so friendly, and they are extremely welcoming, professional and gentle in all of their procedures.”
