Your one-stop shop for dentistry needs

We are proud to offer the highest level of care to our patients. We can care for any patient of any age, ranging from infants to senior citizens.

In addition to serving all your general dentistry needs such as cleanings and fillings, we also practice several specialties of dental science, including:

  • Cosmetic dentistry – A set of procedures and treatments intended to improve the appearance of teeth. Some popular cosmetic procedures include teeth whitening and veneers.
  • Orthodontics – Using the latest advances in dental science to straighten teeth and improve the alignment of your bite. In addition to braces and Invisalign, we also practice functional orthodontics, which refers to using orthodontic methods to improve your overall oral health.
  • Neuromuscular dentistry – Focusing on the alignment of the bite and jaw, this specialization provides the training needed to successfully diagnose and treat cases of temporomandibular joint disorder.
