Your Health is Our Top Priority

State-of-the-Art Sterilization for Health and Safety

Sterilization is a high priority our office. In addition to cleaning and sterilizing all instruments after every use, single-use tools are utilized as necessary. Instruments are sterilized after use with a special machine called the autoclave, which is regularly tested by an independent lab to make sure of the highest level for safety and cleanliness. We don’t take any chances with your health at our practice.

Wellness Dentistry

What Does Wellness Dentistry Mean?

Let’s say you become sick and go to a doctor for care. And let’s assume you are treated and recover. That’s all great! But what if instead you met with your doctor when you weren’t sick and learned how to stay healthy? Wouldn’t that be even better? That’s what we call “Wellness Care,” and it’s what we employ in our practice. We can get your teeth and gums to health and repair damage like any dental office. But we go even further and show how to avoid dental problems in the first place.

We begin by giving you a very thorough examination. Many patients say they’ve never had such an extensive oral exam. We check out your bite and how your teeth mesh together, we look for oral cancer signs, gum disease, wear on the tooth structure, and any problem that you might encounter in the future. We want to stave off any problems and make your smile healthy so you will be spending less time at the dentist!

Dental Implants

Teeth in a Day

Traditionally, dental implant surgery and the restoration of the implants is a two-stage process. However, in selected cases, implants can be restored on the same day of implant surgery. With proper planning and provided there is enough bone, a patient can have implant surgery in the morning and walk out in the afternoon with a beautiful smile already screwed into his implants. It is teamwork between the surgeon and the prosthodontist. Today you can walk into our practice with a set of dentures or failing teeth and leave a few hours later with implants and a brand-new smile attached to them!

Sweet as the holidays may be, sugar-packed treats can wreak havoc on your pearly whites. This season, ring in the festivities with healthy and fun holiday snack options that fill your mouth with joy.

Egg Snowmen










These adorable snowmen - made with hard-boiled eggs, carrots and peppercorns - will melt your heart before melting in your mouth. Eggs are a source of Vitamin D, which is needed to help absorb, carry and deposit calcium in the bone that supports your teeth. Carrots - which are crunchy, firm and full of water - help to scrub your teeth clean like a natural toothbrush.

Spinach Artichoke Frittata Trees











You won’t need to cut down on these trees! Dairy products like milk contain calcium, eggs are a source of Vitamin D and leafy greens like spinach are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. (Just be sure to floss before flashing a smile beneath the mistletoe!)
