Our patients love our:

  • Comprehensive Care – We provide a full menu of dental services for your entire family, from dental exams to dentures. Our dentists specialize in saving teeth damaged by infection or traumatic injury.
  • Extended Hours – Our extended hours make it easy to see our dentists for everything from routine care to dental emergencies.
  • Many Amenities – You’ll enjoy bottled water and other comforts. To soothe your nerves, we offer oral conscious sedation.

You have many options other than insurance to pay for your dental care. We accept cash, checks, credit cards, and third-party financing from CareCredit. We can also create an in-house no-interest payment plan for you. Plus, we have money-saving options such as discounts for services paid in full in advance.

We offer several cosmetic solutions for stained teeth. Many kinds of staining respond well to teeth whitening treatments, either in our office or at home. For those that don’t, you can cover discoloration with dental veneers or a tooth bonding treatment. One of our dentists will help you determine which solution will work best for you.

We offer several kinds of Invisalign aligners, many of which are well suited to adult smiles. Invisalign removable aligners make it easy to eat whatever you’d like and keep your teeth clean. Plus, aligners are nearly invisible in your smile. Choose from Invisalign, Invisalign Lite, Invisalign Express, and Invisalign Teen.
