  • Our Services

    Our priority is your overall dental health. We provide a wide range of dental treatment in our office to relieve any pain you are having, reduce or eliminate any disease, rebuild broken teeth, replace missing teeth or cosmetic procedures to enhance and brighten any smile.


    Prevention is always better than treatment. By actively preventing disease and decay through regular home care, professional dental cleanings and regular exams, you will maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. In addition, effective prevention can help you avoid costly treatments in the future to remove decay, restore teeth and treat gum disease. Here at our practice, we go the extra mile: we carefully coach you while you’re here, providing the individualized instruction to make sure you’re an even better brusher & flosser. And we have an automatic recall system to help you keep on target with those cleanings. If you or a family member has not had a professional cleaning recently, please consider the importance of regular cleanings and maintenance of your dental health. Call us today!


    Life, stress, accidents, age…they all take their toll on teeth. Research has shown that almost everybody has a 95% chance of experiencing some tooth decay. When tooth decay does occur, it is highly important to remove the decay, clean the tooth and repair the tooth with some type of restoration. Additionally, lost or missing teeth need to be replaced to protect your overall oral health. Furthermore, appropriate timing can mean the difference between eliminating a small concern, and facing a chronic, serious condition. In fact, oral health problems can lead to a whole host of other general health problems if not treated in a timely manner: including heart disease, stroke, diabetes complications, respiratory trouble, and problem pregnancies. That’s why we’re so vigilant during our exams. We carefully evaluate your entire mouth, identify problems while they’re small, and then educate you about what we see, as well as possible treatment strategies.


    A beautiful, bright, healthy smile can increase self confidence and overall life satisfaction. We perform many state-of-the-art procedures to improve the smiles of our patients. Today, there are a variety of techniques and options to treat teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or missing. We can reshape your teeth, close unwanted spaces, restore excessively worn teeth, or even alter the length of your teeth. We offer a variety of cosmetic procedures to enhance and liven any smile; including, in office bleaching, at home bleaching, deep bleaching, reshaping and re-contouring, composite veneers, porcelain veneers, natural looking all porcelain crowns.
