Our Family-Oriented Approach

Our dental team works hard to create a warm and welcoming environment for patients of all ages. From the moment you walk through our doors, we'll dedicate ourselves to exceeding your expectations from the reception area to the exam chair.

To help make our dental services accessible to all our community members, we accept various forms of financing, including CareCredit®. Our practice offers emergency dental services to help you get the relief you deserve without putting off your oral health. If we're unable to immediately answer your call, we'll work to call you back as soon as possible.

Friendly Dental Care for Children

Healthy oral care habits built during childhood last a lifetime. Our family dentist and his staff take the time to explain at-home care instructions using kid-friendly language that's easy for your child to remember. Some of the habits we'll cover include brushing, flossing, and consuming less sugar. We can begin seeing children as young as five years old.

In addition to exams and cleanings, we're proud to provide orthodontic monitoring. Our dental team will carefully monitor your child's dental development for misalignment issues. We'll refer you to a trusted local orthodontist if we notice any potential dental complications.

Respectful Dentistry for Teens

As a result, good oral habits built during childhood can weaken as they neglect their smile. Our staff will work to reinforce healthy oral habits while respecting their increased independence.

If your adolescent is involved in physical activity like sports, we offer high-quality sports guards to protect their smile. The dental device is typically worn on their upper teeth and consists of durable yet flexible plastic that protects their teeth from damage and trauma. Sports guards are excellent for football, hockey, basketball, soccer, and wrestling.

Comprehensive Oral Care for Adults

Adults have extensive dental needs that encompass preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental care. As such, we're proud to provide everything from gentle dental cleanings to superb restorations. A crucial component of our adult care is replacing your old restorations. For example, if you have old silver fillings, we can replace them with natural-looking material. We can also replace your crowns if they're showing dark lines.

Our restorative options include:

Effective & High-Quality Nightguards

If you're dealing with bruxism or TMD, nightguards may be an excellent option for you. As a minimally invasive treatment, nightguards are easy to use and effectively prevent your jaw and muscles from shifting to painful positions. Our family dentistry practice will custom fit your nightguard for a comfortable fit.

Preserving the Oral Health of Seniors

That's why our family dentistry practice provides skilled gum disease treatment, including preventing dry mouth. Our team is passionate about preserving your natural teeth and restoring the functionality of your smile.

We'll review your medical history and current medications during your initial visit. Using the information, we'll work to create a comprehensive dental plan that addresses your oral concerns while fitting your comfort level.

Family Dentistry FAQs

Our family dentist and his staff are here to answer your questions and give you the information you need to make informed decisions about your family's oral health. Some frequently asked questions about family dentistry include:

Which forms of insurance do you accept?

Our practice is proud to accept various forms of insurance, including PPO plans and SHIP dental insurance. We also regularly work with adults and seniors and understand how to fit our services to match your unique budget.

Although the frequency of dental visits depends on the condition of your child's smile, we typically recommend bringing them in twice a year. We'll conduct a thorough oral exam and teeth cleaning while also monitoring their smile for orthodontic issues.
