Our Allen office features several advanced dental technologies that are designed to improve our patient care to even greater levels, creating a more accurate and comfortable diagnosis and treatment experience overall.

We enjoy welcoming new patients from Plano, TX and other surrounding areas.
All too often, patients can feel like they’re simply left in the dark when it comes to the realities of their oral health. You can’t see what the dentist is seeing; instead, you just nod along with what they say, agreeing to services and treatment plans without fully understanding what the issues you’re facing are. At Amazing Smiles, our team wants to help you become a fully informed partner in your oral healthcare journey with us, and our intraoral cameras make this possible.
The process is simple – the camera-tipped wand is comfortably placed within the patient’s mouth so that it’s able to transmit high-resolution images to a conveniently placed monitor. With the help of this visual aid, Dr. Narita will be able to enhance your checkup, pointing out areas of damage and decay and more clearly explaining the changes that certain treatment options will create. Our goal is to help you leave our office feeling more confident than ever about the direction your smile is heading in here in Allen, TX.
Not every dental problem can be easily identified by the naked eye; that’s why X-rays are such a vital part of the diagnostic process. Our team is proud to have advanced beyond the pitfalls of traditional film, featuring advanced digital X-ray technology here at Amazing Smiles. Now, we can capture highly detailed images of your smile and upload them onto our computer system in a matter of seconds – no darkroom development required. The images can even be color-coded and magnified for patient educational purposes!
Digital X-rays can be digitally stored and instantly transferred to insurance companies and other doctors as needed. Better yet, radiation exposure is greatly decreased, which makes them much safer for children and adults alike.
How can a dentist interrupt developing cavities that are not yet visible? This challenge from an earlier era has been met with the DIAGNOdent system, a laser that enables Dr. Narita to detect decay early. The pen sized instrument glides over the tooth shining a light through the tooth. If decay is present, the sensor will alarm and indicate the existence of the hidden cavity. This breakthrough tool allows us to address the issue before decay causes further damage to the tooth.
No Rinses, No Dyes, No More Excuses
OralID uses a proven, optically based technology called "fluorescent technology". OralID's fluorescent technology uses a blue light (435-460nm) that allows Dr. Narita to identify oral cancer, pre-cancer and other abnormal lesions at an earlier stage, thus saving lives. The medical applications of fluorescent technology includes diagnosis of GI tract, cervix, lung, skin and oral mucosa.
