If the idea of visiting the dentist fills you will feelings of anxiety, nervousness, and even dread, you are far from alone. It’s estimated that between 9% and 15% of Americans have a fear that’s intense enough to prevent them from getting the care they need.
Of course, if you do suffer from dental anxiety, the best thing you can do for yourself is to visit us every six months. Because the longer you put it off, the higher the likelihood you’ll end up with tooth decay, gum disease, or another problem with your oral health. And generally speaking, the worse the issue, the more difficult it is to treat.

We Love Patient-Friendly Technology
The field of dentistry has changed dramatically over the past few decades thanks to the introduction of a whole slew of technological innovations. And for you, the patient, that’s a good thing. Computerized processes and modern materials have made procedures faster, less invasive, and just plain better.
A good example of this is our use of state-of-the-art digital X-rays. The process of taking them is less uncomfortable than old-style X-rays, and you don’t have to wait around for the film to be developed. Our X-rays are available immediately on a computer screen, where we are able to enlarge, focus, and manipulate them. This enables us (and you!) to see what exactly is going on in your mouth.
