Count on Expertise.

As comfortable as we make our patients' visits, we know that no one looks forward to dental procedures. That's why we focus on educating our patients on preventative care and steps they can take, with the guidance of their dental team, to keep themselves in optimal dental health, and out of our comfy exam rooms. But when expert dental care is needed, our team's professionalism is ready and waiting.  We complete extra-thorough examinations to get a clear picture of where your teeth and gums have been, and where they're headed.  We screen for oral diseases and cancer, and take painless X-rays only when we think they're needed. Check us out on Facebook for frequent tips on routine home care you can do yourself to prevent or slow periodontal issues in the future.
