At Dental Professionals of Rockwall, Dr. Brigette Koetter is honored to provide a lifetime of preventive dental care for the whole family. Her comprehensive dental services include but are not limited to composite (tooth-colored) fillings, crowns, bridges, orthodontics, Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, Lumineers, veneers, dentures, partial dentures, extractions, root canal therapy, cosmetic dentistry, and conscious sedation. Her office uses advanced equipment and digital x-ray technology with intraoral cameras. “We are always accepting new patients of all ages,” Dr. Koetter says. Her gentle and caring staff helps to ensure each patient’s comfort and safety is a top priority.
Innovative Technology and Equipment Recently Added
Dr. Koetter has recently introduced state-of-the-art equipment to her practice based on the latest dental technology. A digital scanner is a noninvasive device that eliminates the need for awkward, gooey impressions. Instead, it takes a digital image of the mouth and teeth, allowing Dr. Koetter to make night guards, retainers, and crowns with meticulous precision. Dr. Koetter has also added the ability to have crowns created and delivered the same day. CEREC crowns use CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and manufacturing) technology to design, create, and manufacture a quality porcelain crown after 3D images are taken with the intraoral camera. From the beginning to end, the entire process is done in Dr. Koetter’s office, making patients’ appointments easy and convenient without weeks of waiting and multiple visits.
Experience, Credentials, and Awards
Dr. Koetter earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Oklahoma in 2002, where she was honored as an OU Scholar. She was a member of Golden Key Honor Society, Gamma Beta Phi Society, and Delta Delta Delta. Prior to attending dental school, Dr. Koetter gained experience in her field working with an orthodontic practice for six years. She went on to earn a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry in 2007.
During dental school, she was chosen as a teaching assistant for the undergraduate orthodontic department, serving two years. She was one of three students recognized as a Senior Departmental Advanced Studies program participant in orthodontics and was honored with the John C. and Ruberta Weaver Award for excellence in periodontics and prosthodontics. She is a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
