Our Dental Services

Our talented team at The Art of Dentistry offers a range of services to accommodate your dental needs. We offer General Dentistry, Implant Dentistry, and Cosmetic Dentistry. With a focus on collaboration, we believe in working together to make sure our patients receive highly specialized care no matter what treatment or procedures they may require.

General Dentistry

When it comes to general dentistry, our focus is making sure that our patients are living both healthy and happy lives. That means focusing on not just your oral health, but also the appearance of your smile. We know how important first impressions can be, so at The Art of Dentistry, we want to make sure our patients have smiles they’re proud of.

A top priority is avoiding and/or treating gum disease. Characterized by inflamed or bleeding gums, sensitive or missing teeth, and bad breath, or Halitosis, it’s important to catch Gum Disease as early as possible. The earlier you begin treatment, the better, as gum disease can permanently damage your smile if left without care. Gum disease has also been linked to other health concerns including, heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and preterm labor. If you’re worried about gum disease, don’t hesitate to book an appointment with one of our doctors today, and if you do need treatment, we offer a minimally invasive Laser Gum Surgery that is both safe and effective. 

One in 40 million Americans avoid the dentist; if this sounds like you, it’s worth considering sedation dentistry to help with dental anxiety, fear of needles, or a low pain tolerance. Talk to someone on our staff today to learn how sedation dentistry can help you stop avoiding the dentist and start getting the help you need.
