Dr. Rae began his journey toward dentistry at DeLand High School as a graduate of the International Baccalaureate program. This highly demanding program prepares students for the high demands of a college course load. This program gave him an advantage at Florida State University where he received two degrees, a Bachelors of Science in Biology and a Bachelors of Arts in Classical History. After taking acceptance exams required by dental schools, Dr. Rae became a student at Nova Southeastern University School of Dentistry. This program focuses students on clinical experience, fashioning a superior graduate. As a private school, Nova allows their dental students to focus on a high level of experience in all aspects of dentistry while also developing the business and social skills necessary to become a valued member of their chosen community.
Dr Rae, having grown up in DeLand, is excited to be able to contribute to the DeLand community by providing quality dental care at a reasonable price. Reputation, and a positive patient experience are top priorities here at Victorian Dental. We strive to make dentistry an enjoyable experience that people look forward to. The integration of modern technology, and a caring staff provides an atmosphere that is comfortable for all patients. Our New Office is located at 131 Victoria Commons, and We are proud to become a part of Victoria Park Community. In addition, Dr. Rae is a proud member of various local, and national dental communities. He actively attends local study clubs, and national dentistry meetings. Dr. Rae also plans on becoming a part of the political aspects of dentistry to be able to positively affect the dental practice on a state, and national level. In his free time, Dr. Rae can often be found near the water. Dr. Rae has a true appreciation for all that Florida has to offer especially the beautiful natural springs, and the plentiful ocean.
Victorian Dental's restorative program focuses on providing a superior product that looks great and lasts. We take the extra time to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care that they will love for years to come. The all digital imaging systems we have provides higher quality diagnostic radio-graphs. This is essential to establishing the understanding of what dental care is needed, and provides an advantage in determining exactly what type of treatment the tooth requires. Our fillings use a multi-layer technique that adds strength and perfect color matching which allows for a filling that is both permanent, and unnoticeable. Each tooth has a unique color gradient, and with our layering technique, we can match these variations to provide a superior look that integrates perfectly with your smile.
The pride, and joy of our Advanced Technological Lineup is our Ce-Rec Machine. This machine allows us to provide superior crowns in only a single visit. Patients are no longer required to have multiple visits, and endure temporary crowns prior to receiving their permanent crown. Ce-Rec crowns are superior to other crowns in several aspects. The main advantage of Ce-Rec Crowns is their non-metal base, which allows for a more natural look, and feel. Our office lab features a custom staining area to ensure the crowns are an exact color match. Everyone has slight variations from standard shades, therefore custom staining is necessary to create an exact color match. The number one issue people have with crown, and bridge work involves variations from their natural shade. Our system eliminates this problem
Endodontics, or “Root Canals”, have changed dramatically over the last several decades. No longer is this procedure unbearable for the patient due to advances in technique. We take proper care of our patients to ensure that they remain comfortable. Our rotary file system allows for faster procedure times, and the use of antibiotics ensures that anesthetics work properly. Procedures that used to take several appointments now take only one, reducing chair time, and time missed from work. Our implant system, by Nobel, is the top industry standard that all implant companies strive to achieve. This system gives our implants the best possible chance of success upon placement.
Victorian Dental serves as a complete dental care office. We strive to reduce the amount of referrals needed by incorporating all aspects of dentistry into our office. Extractions, implants, crowns, bridges, fillings, root canals, cleanings of all types, braces, dentures and partials are all done at Victorian Dental, ensuring that all of your dental needs will be taken care of. Using new technology, and State of The Art equipment gives Victorian Dental an advantage in helping you achieve your dental goals, whatever they may be. Our kind, caring, and knowledgeable staff always strives to keep our patients informed, and comfortable during their dental experience.
