The Southridge Dental Comfort Philosophy

Comfort Denistry Near Me

Helping Clients Feel Comfortable and Get the Help They Need with Professional Experts

Getting dental care is extremely important to your health and wellness. This is why we offer comfort dentistry: a warm, welcoming environment for our patients to receive their routine, preventive, family, and cosmetic dental care in a space where they can feel comfortable, and in the company of professionals.

When Dr. Simper started his practice at Southridge Dental, his desire was to create a dental practice that he, as a dentist, would be pleased to go to — one of his main focuses being patient comfort and convenience. Simple things like scheduling patients so they didn’t have to wait to get in for their appointment, or having the best technology to properly serve patients, were (and still are) a top priority. Not only does Dr. Simper have great chairside manner and listen to you closely, but he is also skilled at all aspects of dentistry!

Professional Accreditations

When it comes to your oral health, it’s important that you pick a dentist that is professional and well trained! Dr. Simper is continuously pushing himself to learn more and to be an expert in his field. Our patients find comfort in knowing that Dr. Simper is incredibly well-trained and educated, and in fact, he has achieved Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry. 

What is the Academy of General Dentistry? 

The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) is the professional association for general dentists. It is the only organization exclusively dedicated to representing the interests and serving the needs of general dentists, like Dr. Simper.

Why is a Fellowship important?

A dentist who has received their Fellowship offers his or her patients cutting-edge care. The dentists have to complete 500 hours of continuing education in various disciplines and then pass a rigorous examination. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it to make sure our patients are getting the best possible care available!

How long does Fellowship take? 

It varies based on personal availability to take the special courses and exams. For Dr. Simper, it took 4 years to achieve Fellowship. To earn Fellowship in the AGD, dentists must take more than 500 hours of educational courses in various disciplines. Candidates must also pass a rigorous exam. The award is then presented to general dentists in a formal ceremony. Sean Simper, D.D.S., is one of only 7 percent of general dentists who have achieved this honor!

Achieving Fellowship in the AGD is one of the few added distinctions a general dentist can achieve.

“Absolutely recommend. I went to a different dentist that really messed up my teeth. They scared me from ever going back to the dentist. But I can’t even tell you how calm I was at Southridge. They offer so many calming services. Hot towels, neck rolls, warm wax for your hands, it really feels like a spa experience. They also have a snack area! So amazing. I brought my children with me. 6 months old and 4 years old. They were so sweet to them, interacting and engaging with my children as well as me. They made me feel so special. The receptionists were so helpful and absolutely sweet. Will never go anywhere else. ❤️
