Julia, Treatment Plan Coordinator
I have been in the dental field for 13 years now, and have enjoyed learning so much! Starting out as an assistant, I had the opportunity to move to the front desk. Being able to greet all of our patients and make new friendships has been my favorite part so far. My husband is currently a student going to USU, which is what brought us here to Logan. We have one daughter, and another on the way! I am so glad that we’ve moved here and for the opportunity to work for Dr. Skinner – he really is the BEST!

I enjoy the outdoors and family outings such as camping, riding dirt bikes and competing in hill climbs with my brothers. I love meeting new people and helping them out in any way possible. My favorite thing is to see patients smiling faces after treatment and making you feel as comfortable a possible. I look forward to meeting you and seeing that smile.

I have a 1 year old boy who keeps me busy on my days off, we enjoy walks to see and feed the ducks by our house and making messes while we make memories.

A panoramic radiograph also know as a panorex is a two-dimensional dental x-ray that displays both the upper and lower jaws and teeth, in the same film.
A panorex is a very impressive piece of imaging machinery in that it is capable of identifying many issues and structures that a normal x-ray is not. Initially you will stand with your chin on a small ledge. Once positioned in the machine, it will rotate around your entire head taking a full 360 degree view of the teeth, head, sinuses and bones.
The ability to view the full structure of your head as a whole is very informative to the dentist. It will allow us to see any potential problems and make sure that everything is functioning as it should be. The panorex is capable of viewing specific types of structural problems, infections or asymmetry among many others.
The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to just a few years ago. The camera gives us the ability to view the entire mouth on a monitor so that we can get a closer look at any potential issues or problems that may arise. Intraoral cameras are best used chairside to show the patient a clear picture of the inside of their mouth, allowing the dentist to consult them on various treatment options, and save the images directly to a patient’s file. The patient will have the ability to see for themselves first hand the same images we are seeing. These digital images are also excellent for gaining procedure approval and payment from insurance companies.
Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal, is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often due to the fact that they are infected and the tooth is causing pain.
Rotary Endodontics is a way of performing the root canal utilizing a specific electrical handpiece. This tool often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to perform the process with greater ease.
There are basically two types of handpieces, air-driven and electric. Electric handpieces are much stronger than air-driven due to the fact that a motor is spinning the bur as opposed to air. This allows the doctor to remove decay at a faster pace. This will cut down on the time it takes to complete a procedure.
Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) are a variation of traditional computed tomography (CT) systems. The CBCT systems used by dental professionals rotate around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. These data are used to reconstruct a three-dimensional (3D) image of the following regions of the patient’s anatomy: dental (teeth); oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw, and neck); and ears, nose, and throat (“ENT”).
Same Day Crowns
No temporary crown. No second visit. No goo in your mouth. The CEREC one-visit crown machine helps our highly trained assistants create a restoration for your tooth. The 3D software takes the digital picture and converts it into a 3-dimensional virtual model on the computer screen. Your Dentist then uses dental expertise to design the restoration using the 3D computer program. Within a few minutes, we click a button, and the restoration design data is sent to a separate milling machine in the office.
A ceramic block that matches your tooth shade is placed in the milling machine. About 10 – 20 minutes later, your all-ceramic, tooth-colored restoration is finished and ready to bond in place. Finally, your Dentist tries the restoration in your mouth to ensure proper fit and bite. The restoration is then polished and bonded to the prepared tooth. Your tooth is restored with no “temporary” or return trip necessary. All of this is done in a single appointment!

Went to Dr. Skinner’s office today for the first time and it was AMAZING!! From the ladies at the front office, to the assistants, to the hygienist, all the way to the doc himself, everyone was so incredibly friendly and warm. Coming from someone who has a fear of dentist offices, this one was anything but scary. Thanks to all the people who recommended them!! They are awesome!! -Kezya Rego
