West Coast Dental Group of Torrance Goes Paperless

est Coast Dental Services, Inc., a Group of multi-specialty dental care facilities in Southern California, announced the success of the first step of their Paperless Office initiative, which includes the introduction of e-charts, at their West Coast Dental Group of Torrance location. The facility commenced the initiative on February 13, 2012. West Coast Dental Services, Inc. intends to expand this initiative to all 25 current locations.

The decision to go Paperless was based on improving customer service.  Patient wait time in the office is the most common complaint from patients visiting a doctor or dentist.  To lessen the amount of time a patient spends at West Coast Dental Group of Torrance, patients can now register for their appointment online as well as fill out forms on their overall and dental health.  The use of e-charts (storing all data held within a chart electronically) and storing documents online both will allow dentist and staff alike the ability to instantly access all information relative to the patient and share that information with the rest of the treatment team.  Although the successful portions of the first step of the initiative were focused on improving the quality of patient care, this new initiative is consistent with West Coast Dental Services Inc.’s state-of-the-art technology offices while becoming more environmentally sound. 

The West Coast Dental Group of Torrance facilitates general and cosmetic dentistry, preventative care, teeth whitening, smile makeovers, and specialty care services, including periodontics, oral surgery, pedodontics, and endodontics. In addition, the facility conducts dental implants, makes custom dentures, crowns, bridges, veneers and provides fluoride treatments. West Coast Dental Group of Torrance accepts most PPO and HMO insurance plans, including Medi-Cal and Healthy Families with approved referral, while offering patients without insurance the opportunity to become a member of the Dental Alliance discount program.  The facility also provides special offers wherein new patients can get their oral health examined and X-rays conducted for $40.

West Coast Dental Group of Torrance is open Mondays & Tuesdays 10:00am- 7:00pm, Wednesdays & Fridays from 8:00am-5:00pm, Thursdays 9:00am-6:00pm, and Saturdays 8:00am-3:00pm.  Interested patients may schedule an appointment by calling 888-329-8111 or online.
