Complete dental care from A to Z
Extend the natural life of your teeth and maintain good oral health with routine dental care. Regular visits to your dentist and quick intervention at the earliest sign of decay will save you from pain, discomfort and unexpected expenses.

- Super clean teeth that look whiter without whitening.
- Xrays that detect problems while they’re still small.
- Healthy gums that don’t itch or bleed.
- Composite fillings that halt cavities in their tracks.
- Less sensitivity from hot and cold foods.
- Reverse and prevent tooth decay.
- Extend the life of prosthetics and appliances.
- Save your natural tooth from an infection

The importance of early intervention and routine care
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We really want to see you smile. Your health is our top priority and our routine care and recommendations for early intervention come from a place of care and concern. Keeping your teeth, gums, jaw and tongue healthy right now and repairing problems when they first appear will mean much less discomfort and pain and fewer unexpected expenses for you. And that is what keeps our patients smiling.
Keep your natural teeth for longer
Did you know the most common causes of tooth loss are cavities for young adults and gum disease in older adults? Practicing good oral hygiene habits at home is a great way to keep your mouth strong and healthy and at your routine exam, we can detect the earliest signs of gum disease and tooth decay and intervene before they get worse.
Save your money
Routine teeth cleaning and exams are relatively low-cost and predictable expenses that can fit in a budget. Treatments for the earliest signs of tooth decay, such as composite fillings, also happen to be relatively low-cost and a good long-term investment. More drastic procedures needed to repair more serious health issues often come with a bigger price tag.
Don’t even think about it
One of the greatest things about optimal oral health is that you don’t even think about it at all. There are no aches or inflammation. No all-consuming toothache. You don’t have to worry about the food you want to eat or feel self-conscious about your smile. Well maintained teeth are naturally beautiful, comfortable and reliable.

Frequently Asked Questions

A root canal is a procedure that is indicated when a tooth has an inflamed or dead nerve that in either conditions is causing pain and discomfort. The tooth is numbed completely and a small opening is made under extreme magnification and the affected nerve is cleared and its space is filled. The procedure doesn’t not hurt & any discomfort that could possibly happen following the procedure is usually controlled with medications.
Gum health is directly related to general health the healthier your gums the healthier you. your gum is a mirror of you general health
The gum is the frame of your smile & in many cases it could be the difference between a successful & a failed treatment outcome and for that gum treatment is the corner stone of any successful treatment plan.
Preventative care is vital to oral health. Our patients often visit us three to four times per year for a good cleaning.
Ultimately, a filling brings a tooth to a repaired state—but getting there is a three-step process. We will remove any tooth decay, clean area extensively, and than apply a gold or white plastic resin to fully repair the tooth.
Bacterial infections can find their way in-between teeth if left unchecked. When this bacteria feeds on the left-over food particles from what we eat, an acid is created that attacks and weakens the enamel of the tooth.
We reserve the appointment slot exclusively for you. We do not double book. Therefore, we would ask that you give us 48-hours notice to cancel an appointment so we have time to offer the slot to someone else who may be waiting.
