A Little About Our Practice...
A Clean & Safe Office
Do you ever worry about cleanliness in dental offices? We go above and beyond for you, exceeding the American Dental Association (ADA) and OSHA recommended standards for a clean and safe practice. We have a dedicated area with state-of-the-art sterilization technology, where every instrument is wrapped, disinfected, and made ready before your visit. We also sanitize each room between patients, and we use a closed water system (rather than everyday tap water). Additionally, we perform weekly spore testing with a third party infection control center. We worry about the cleanliness of our office so you’ll never have to!

We empower you to make smart choices for your oral health and smile enhancements through information and thorough consultation, easy and accommodating financing, and comfortable facilities and care.

A Kid Friendly & Kid Sensitive Office
Habits such as teeth brushing and finger sucking are of primary concern to us, because they can seriously affect children’s smile development. We understand that these habits must be treated with sensitivity and patience and that some children feel uneasy about dental visits. Our friendly and gentle manner will help your child (and you) feel at ease in our care.
