Welcome to Our Practice

Make Us Partners in Your Oral Health

We think the best way to help you achieve excellent oral health is to make you a partner in your dental care. We take the time to answer all of your questions and explain every treatment option. With high-tech tools like our dental imaging software, we can sometimes even show you how certain treatments will affect your smile!

Our  dentist welcome patients from 3 to 93 by offering all of the services your family is likely to need. Whether he is applying fluoride to your child’s teeth, creating an Invisalign treatment plan for your teenager, or fitting you for a mouthguard to relieve your TMJ pain, he’ll move at a pace that is comfortable for you.

You’ll also find plenty of options to pay for your family’s care. While we accept most dental insurance plans, you can also use a check, a credit card, or financing from CareCredit.
