In The News   JANUARY 4TH, 2017 – 8:45 AM An Award-Winning Dental Experience: Back Mountain Dental NATIVE ADVERTISING   For most people, a trip to the dentist is anticipated with dread. It might hurt or cause discomfort. There is the awkwardness of trying to talk with fingers or instruments in your mouth, and then there’s the sense of guilt when the dentist calls you out on not flossing since your last visit. But for patients at Back Mountain Dental, the experience is different. Their feedback shows that time with the staff leaves them at ease, even if they normally hate going to the dentist. “What a great experience! I can’t wait to see the end results of the work I am going to have done by Dr. DeFinnis and the team. My only regret? Not seeing them sooner! If you have dental phobia like I do, go see Dr. DeFinnis. I promise you will not be sorry,” wrote one patient about her experience. Patient experience is the main focus for the practice. The staff works to have fun with one other, enjoy their jobs and help patients enjoy their visits. Out of that comes the office motto: “We take our dentistry seriously, but we don’t take ourselves seriously.” Interacting with patients is the favorite part of the work week for Dr. James DeFinnis, the owner of the practice. “I love that I get to meet and talk to so many people in a day,” he says. The people who go to Back Mountain Dental prove that the practice is special. In addition to referring friends and family, they have continued to select Dr. DeFinnis for awards. Among other awards, he was named Platinum Winner for the Times Leader Reader’s Choice 2016 Awards and Best Cosmetic Dentist in the Best of the Back Mountain contest for numerous years. “Being chosen for awards is the ultimate compliment. We all want to be accepted and valued,” Dr. DeFinnis says. “When people vote for us, it’s really humbling to know people support you and your team.” Dr. DeFinnis attended Bucknell University as an undergraduate and went to dental school at Temple University, opening Back Mountain Dental soon after. In addition to outstanding patient care, he specializes in sedation dentistry (which is particularly beneficial for people who are afraid of the dentist), veneers, crowns, whitening, cleanings, fillings and root canals. Another aspect of Back Mountain Dental that sets the practice apart is their training and skill. The staff is able to execute complex procedures in one visit so that patients can minimize the time they have to spend at the dentist away from work and family. Part of helping to avoid needing those complex procedures is coming in early on to have potential problems looked at before they get too serious. Regular check-ups, brushing and flossing are also critical to preventing plaque and bacteria buildup. Preventative actions like coming in for a cleaning can save money and pain in the long run, and when the staff is as enjoyable as Back Mountain Dental’s, you just might have fun during it. Back Mountain Dental offers a comprehensive array of dental services to fully support your family’s oral health. Dr. DeFinnis and staff provide general dentistry services, cosmetic dentistry and sedation dentistry. The practice is located at 210 Carverton Rd. in Shavertown.

Meet Dr. DeFinnis Dr. James C. DeFinnis DMD is a well-known dentist in Scranton, PA. A Pennsylvania native, he was born and raised in Berwick, PA. After graduating from Berwick High School, he attended Bucknell University receiving his Bachelor of Science degree with a major in economics and a science minor.

Dr. DeFinnis is the dentist to choose for all your routine dental needs as well as complete smile makeovers. Sedation Dentistry For Pain Free Procedures Dr. DeFinnis is also an IV sedation dentist providing the comfort of sedation dentistry to his patients who have a fear of dentists. Intravenous Sedation or dental IV sedation, is a medical technique that keeps patients comfortably sedated throughout their dental procedures. Dr. DeFinnis has been specially trained with postgraduate hospital-based residency training with multiple continuing education classes in conscious IV sedation. His office is equipped with the same advanced hospital equipment he was trained with to administer the sedation anesthesia. IV sedation is similar to general anesthesia where the patient is asleep, except the patient is never fully asleep with “conscious” sedation. IV sedation dentistry uses monitored anesthesia care, so it is a very safe and effective means of completing complex dental treatments in one sitting with no pain, no anxiety, and even no memory of the procedure.
