Our Services

Family Care

From toddlers to the elderly, our skilled dental team is familiar with the unique needs of every patient, no matter their age. Our goal is to help them develop great oral habits that will last them a lifetime.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile will increase self-confidence and overall life satisfaction. We have many options, so please call us today!

Smile Whitening

Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile for that dazzling white smile you deserve.

Crowns & Bridges

Protect and keep badly decayed or fractured teeth while maintaining a beautiful smile. Made to perfectly match the shape and shade of your other teeth, they’re durable, strong, and undetectable.

Digital X-Rays

Our use of digital x-ray technology reduces your radiation exposure and eliminates the use of chemicals. It’s better for you and the environment. It's also easy for you to see what the doctor sees, and make informed choices about your treatment.


The common silver filling contains mercury. We use the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles without all of the prep-work associated with traditional fillings.
