Office Tour

Featured Services

By actively preventing disease and decay through regular home care, professional dental cleanings and regular exams, we’ll partner with you to maintain your healthy, beautiful smile. Prevention is always better than treatment, so if it’s been a while since you’ve seen a dentist, please give us a call or click to request an appointment

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile can increase self confidence and overall life satisfaction. Cosmetic dentistry can encompass things such as tooth-colored fillings, dental implants, or crowns. We have many options, so please call us for a free cosmetic consultation.

Fixed Dentures with Implants

Dentures can be attached to implants to help improve their fit and greatly increase chewing ability. Made in our in-house denture lab, our dentures are a great fit for replacing missing teeth and eliminating bridges. As an added benefit, the implants prevent the steady bone loss caused by traditional dentures.
