Meet Our Team
At Dr. Zak Downey Dental Care we are the first to admit that we, dentists are human, and as individuals can make mistakes. That is why our approach to dental care ensures accountability and quality control that can only be achieved through not just one but a team of practitioners. So YES! at Dr. Zak Downey Dental Care you will have not just one, but a team of dental professionals take care of your oral health.
OUR ZAK DENTAL QUALITY CONTROL SYSTEM CONSISTS OF FOUR PARTS
1. YOUR FIRST VISIT. On your first visit, you will meet your Wellness Doctor who will lead the rest of your Zak Dental Team. The Wellness Doctor will take all the time that is needed in not just diagnosing the condition of your oral health, but also understanding YOUR personal goals about YOUR health as well as your financial constraints. That is why your treatment plan will be truly personalized and designed to achieve your personal goals, enhance your overall wellness, and be affordable to YOU. After reviewing this plan with you, your Wellness Doctor will put together a clinical team consisting of a hygienist, dentist and possibly dental specialists to complete your treatment.
2. CONSENSUS OF DIAGNOSIS. We believe that there should always be more than one provider working on your treatment plan to confirm the accuracy of your diagnosis. That is why before any major treatment is rendered, at least TWO dentists will need to agree on both diagnosis and optimal treatment. This can only be achieved within our team based approach to dental care delivery
3. SPECIALIZED DENTAL CARE. There is no such a thing as “Jack of All Trades” in dentistry. The variety and complexity of procedures is so vast, that it is often necessary to involve specialists with several years of additional education and training to complete procedures such as implant placement, root canal, wisdom team extractions, braces, full mouth reconstructions, etc. Our team of specialists are ready to step in and complete your treatment that is beyond the scope of a general dentists.
4. 360 DEGREE QUALITY CHECK. Even when your treatment is complete, our job and obligation to you is not over. Your Wellness Doctor will step back in to ensure that our entire team can confidently stand behind the treatment that we rendered to YOU. So do not be alarmed or surprised when mid way or at the end of your treatment, we conduct a quality control check. It’s just business as usual at Zak Dental.

I highly recommend this dentist office. This is "old school" dentistry, but also uses high speed technology. They believe in beginning with conservative treatments and won't recommend something you don't need. They're very honest and trustworthy, which is hard to find anymore among dentists.

Dr. Riedler is super nice with a gentle touch. He could have tried to up-sell me on cosmetic dental services, like other dentists I've been to, but he didn't because he has integrity. Staff is great too, and he plays the classic hits from the 60s and 70s--so that's fun.
