A High-Tech Office

We pride ourselves on using the latest in dental technology. We offer digital x-rays that use less radiation than traditional x-rays. We detect cavities in teeth using laser fluoresence, allowing us to catch cavities much earlier, and making any required fillings much smaller and less costly.

Comfort is King

We pride ourselves on creating an atmosphere of trust and comfort. From refreshments, to massaging dental chairs, to overhead TVs and headphones available during your treatment, we make your appointment as comfortable and convenient as possible.

High Quality Dental Care

We put the CARE in dental care.
