Vancouver Hi-Tech Dental Care

Hi-Tech Dental at Pickens Family Dentistry

A more comfortable and accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

At Pickens Family Dentistry, we place an emphasis on providing you with the most accurate diagnosis possible. To make sure that we get it right and provide you with an excellent experience, we’ve invested in state-of-the art, hi-tech dental equipment. This provides us with an unmatched ability to treat patients, not only in a more comfortable manner, but in fewer visits.

Our investments in technology also allow us to give you a tour of your mouth to show you just what is happening with your oral health. For every diagnosis we make, we’ll show you why treatment is necessary and clearly explain how the treatment will help that specific issue.

Dr. Drue Pickens and the rest of the team have taken the necessary training for all the technology we implement in our Vancouver dentist office. This results in a professional experience and the right treatment for your unique issue.  


Hi-Tech Dental Treatments at Pickens Family Dentistry

At Pickens Family Dentistry, we want to do more than just stop immediate pain and mask the discomfort you’re facing. We want to improve your oral health to ensure a lifetime of smiles.

Our investment and training in hi-tech dental care allows us to get to the root cause of any issues you’re experiencing. Whether you’re suffering from advanced decay, a simple toothache, or need assistance with your bite, we’ll pinpoint what’s wrong and address it head-on.

Our hi-tech dental diagnostic tools also allow us to perform innovative treatments, visualize what cosmetic treatments will look like before treatment is performed, craft custom crowns and bridges, and much more.

Take-Home Sleep Screening Kits

Our take-home sleep kits are easy to use and are reviewed by a board certified sleep specialist, who can deliver any sleep apnea diagnosis.


Fotona Laser

A modern and cutting-edge dental laser that provides precise and effective targeting for a variety of non-invasive treatments, including cavities, root canals, tooth whitening, tooth desensitization, and more. The laser allows for improved patient comfort, better results, and a much faster process with many general dentistry procedures.

Using the Fotona Laser, we are able to offer Nightlase™ treatment to address snoring and sleep apnea. This non-invasive procedure tightens oral tissues thus opening up the airway. This encourages proper breathing and results in little to no snoring after treatment. 


In the past, orthodontic and clear braces treatment required frequent visits to our practice to check in on progress and ensure everything was progressing as it should. We are excited to now offer patients a modern orthodontic experience with DentalMonitoring. 

Using provided hardware and an app that you can download right to your phone, we can check in on progress and answer your questions without you ever leaving your home. You’ll simply provide images to us through the app and Dr. Pickens will be able to check in to make sure everything is alright. You can also ask questions, schedule appointments if adjustments are needed, receive guidance, and see your own progress right from the app. 


Dr. Pickens was very gentle and understanding. He keeps up with the latest technology and dental techniques. His staff is very kind and accommodating.
