General Dentistry & Whole Body Health

Aside from indulging in our favorite foods, conventional wisdom tells us that we are what we eat. Healthy foods equal a healthy body, right? But what happens after we eat? Few people realize the impact to whole body health that proper (or improper) dental care can have. Failing to clean food from the mouth can […]

Electronic Dental Insurance Claims

Our office utilizes electronic claims processing. This means that rather than sending your dental claim through the mail, it is sent electronically to your insurance company with the click of the button. By filing your claim electronically, information is submitted more efficiently and with fewer errors. This benefits our patients because the turn around time […]

Auto Dentist Appointment Reminders

We use a very convenient system that sends you reminders and confirmations via email and two-way text messaging. You can confirm your appointment by simply responding to a text message or email! You can even customize your reminders to what works best for you.

Telescopic Loupes

The dentist performs most of his dental procedures while wearing a pair of funny looking glasses called surgical telescopes. These powerful glasses have magnifiers on them, allowing the dentist to see fine details that would go unnoticed to the naked eye.

Digital Imaging

We use digital imaging software in our office, which allows us to take a digital picture of you and use our imaging system to predict how a particular treatment or cosmetic procedure would change the appearance of your teeth.

Laser Dentistry

The lasers we use in laser dentistry at our practice are an alternative to the common hand-held scalpel, drills, or other tools. These lasers direct an invisible energy beam […]

Digital X-Rays

This provides the familiar black and white images doctors and dentists use to diagnose problems and disease. Without an x-ray of the whole tooth and supporting bone and gum tissues, […]
