Our office is designed to make your visits relaxing and pleasant. Our imaging tools include cone beam computed tomography (CT) scans, intraoral and panorex digital x-rays, iTero scanning, and intra-oral cameras. These devices provide a detailed view of your teeth, gums, and oral structures so we can make an accurate diagnosis and customize your treatment with greater precision. Our preventative services, including exams, cleanings, and oral cancer screenings, can help protect and maintain your dental health. If there is tooth damage to repair, our restorative techniques will improve your appearance and dental function.

We work with select dental labs located nearby to provide beautiful restorations made of high-quality materials, including zirconia, porcelain, and IPS e.max® ceramic. With personal interaction such as custom shade matching, partner labs enhance our ability to create the smile of your dreams.
