Oral Care to Protect Your Overall Health

In recent years, there have been more and more studies that make a strong connection between oral health and overall health. For example, the presence of gum disease has been tied to serious medical conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer.

During cleanings, we get rid of plaque and tartar that have built up and can only be removed by special dental instruments. Bi-annual exams also give us an opportunity to detect any changes in your oral health, including the development of gum disease. We will also screen you for oral cancer.

With regular dentist appointments, you enable us to identify problems while they are still small and more easily treated—and less expensive as well.

We Love Treating Kids

We follow the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, which recommends children first visit the dentist around their first birthday or when their first teeth begin to erupt.

Your child’s first dental appointments are primarily a way to get them accustomed to sitting in the dental chair. Good dental habits start early, and that includes discovering that the dentist's office is not a scary place. Children who start seeing the dentist at an early age as kids usually continue seeing the dentist when they are adults.

Restorative Dentistry for Needed Treatment

In addition, we offer dental crowns and bridges, dental bonding, dental implants, dentures, and veneers for reliable results and a beautiful smile.

Prompt Dental Emergency Treatment

When dental emergencies occur, they often do so at the most inopportune times. We are here to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and get you taken care of quickly when you are in a stressful situation. In most cases, we can see you the same day.

If you are unsure of whether or not your situation constitutes an immediate emergency, give us a call. We can go over your symptoms and determine whether you need come in as soon as possible or if it can wait until our next regular appointment.

Give us a call at the first sign of tooth pain or a dental emergency.
