Comprehensive Dental Care, with an Emphasis on Patient Advocacy
Patient advocacy starts with a very thorough exam,
where we use video scopes so you see what we see. We explain your
conditions, and offer the best video patient education materials on
the planet. We print packets of personalized information for
patients with special needs.
Choices in Dental Care -
Dental problems can usually be treated in more than one way. You
deserve to learn about your choices. We have succeeded when we have
given care that is right for you. We offer a full range of dental
options, from basic to elegant.
For example, you can replace old amalgam fillings with white composite
fillings or porcelain inlays.
We have over 25 years of experience
developing advanced methods to treat tooth decay, broken teeth, tooth
loss, gum disease, infections and cosmetic conditions.

We posted 15 videos so far, covering a variety of topics about dental
implants, ways to replace missing teeth, what happens if you remove
all of your teeth, and occlusal guards for bruxing. All of our
videos are produced in 1080P, the highest HD video standard.
YouTube automatically provides additional formats for 720P, 480, 360,

Painless Anesthesia with The Wand®
do not have to be a dental phobic to appreciate this revolutionary device. The
Wand® uses a microprocessor to deliver dental anesthetic at a slow enough rate
that most people do not notice discomfort.
We now offer advanced oral
cancer screening with the ViziLite Plus system, where we use a simple mouth
rinse then exam with a special light in an effort to identify cancerous or
pre-cancerous lesions earlier.
By the way, we welcome phobics. Colonel Sanders isn’t the only
one who knows how to “do chicken right”!
