Same Day Dentistry

If you ever desire to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is a state-of-the-art orthodontic option that helps align teeth without the use of traditional metal braces.


If you suddenly develop pain in or around your teeth, gums, or jaw joints, we can see you immediately for diagnosis and pain relief.


We can help prevent or minimize the impact of periodontitis, an infection that can damage bone and gum around your teeth causing tooth loss.


If you have a tooth that has decayed or was subjected to trauma, we provide restorative services that will improve the condition of your teeth.

Sleep Apnea & TMJ

If you experience jaw pain when chewing, biting or yawning, or hear clicking noises when opening and closing your mouth, you might have a joint disorder that we are qualified to diagnose and treat.
