Your enjoyable dental experience depends on your comfort and safety. Bloomington Modern Dentistry utilizes the latest technological advances in dental equipment and techniques to ensure your satisfaction with your visit and your continued excellent health.


Your dentist has the expertise to perform all kinds of procedures to help your smile. Maybe the most important service your dentist provides is the knowledge of what care you need. The Caries Management by Risk Assessment (or CAMBRA) system is one way your dentist can determine what procedures are right for you, thus saving you time and money. Just as a cardiologist might measure your blood pressure and cholesterol to determine your risk for a heart attack, Dr. Hobbie and Dr. Baker use the CAMBRA system to determine your risk for dental caries, also known as tooth decay. The CAMBRA system combines a number of factors that will help your dentist diagnose problems earlier. CAMBRA is yet another tool that helps the team at Bloomington Modern Dentistry care for your smile.


You can be perfectly relaxed during your trip to the dentist, even while undergoing treatment! For the fastest and most dramatic results, Bloomington Modern Dentistry offers IV sedation dentistry is designed to relax you and make you more comfortable for complicated dental procedures. IV stands for intravenous, meaning the medication that helps sedate you is administered through the veins, eliminating your anxiety as well as pain. This method allows you to become relaxed at a much faster rate than with other sedation methods. Even if you’re afraid of needles, this needle is so small, most patients liken it to a tiny pinch or a pinprick as the insertion is made, usually at the top of the hand or within the inside of your elbow. Dr. Baker and Dr. Hobbie are very experienced in these techniques. Should you choose IV sedation, they will be sure to create a comfortable experience for you.

Digital X-Rays

Digital radiographs are a technological advancement that results in less exposure to radiation for our patients and an almost instantaneous picture for our dentists. Unlike traditional, film-based x-rays, digital x-rays often show more detail and can be archived in our system for future reference and comparison. You will appreciate a more comfortable visit with less waiting and quicker treatment.

Cone Beam 3D Imaging

Understanding the unique composition of your smile is vital to a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Enjoy the latest digital x-ray technology at Bloomington Modern Dentistry in Cone Beam 3D Imaging. Unlike flat, two-dimensional x-rays, Cone Beam images provide a 3D digital replica of the bones and tissue of your face, teeth, jaw and head. Your computerized image is easily manipulated, allowing your dental team to zoom on specific areas, view your scan from various angles and ultimately understand the complete makeup of your smile. This understanding is extremely useful when your Bloomington Modern Dentistry team is planning dental implant treatments, as well as many other restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. Best of all, your Cone Beam scan is painless, takes only 10 seconds and safely operates with a lower dose of radiation than a traditional CT scan. The imaging system’s scanner rotates around your head one complete circle. Enjoy a truly customized treatment plan based on your exact dental needs!

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera lets you see inside your mouth during both treatment planning and dental procedures. Our intraoral camera displays your teeth on a video screen, allowing your dentist to walk you through your proposed treatment. The use of this camera allows us to work with you as a team to meet your dental care goals. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and discuss your treatment options with you. We want you to picture how your appearance will improve with dental care, giving you all the more reason to smile.

Digital Photography

Digital photography creates instant images to use for cosmetic imaging or to keep on file to track your progress. Digital images can be saved electronically and are more efficient than traditional photographs that show less detail and must be taken off-site for development.
