Patient Testimonials


"I was petrified before I came in. ..probably more afraid than most. Dr.Jones and his staff completed a thorough exam of my teeth and gums, followed by a well-explained, DETAILED outcome and plan of action. Completed my second visit today - a very deep cavity needed filling. I was seen right on time and was completely satisfied with the entire process and outcome. I especially appreciated Kelly's ability to assuage my fear and apprehension. Great job all around! - Mildred L.

The bad reputation that root canals have is a holdover from a time decades ago when dentists were limited in their ability to streamline the procedure.

Say the word “dentures,” and most people envision a set of chunky, unnaturally perfect artificial teeth. Unfortunately, this was often the case in the past; dentists were limited by the materials available at the time, and the focus of dentures was more on function than aesthetics.

However, advances in dental materials and technology have completely changed the way we approach the denture process. Today, we have access to high-quality materials that we can use to customize full and partial dentures to look as much like your natural teeth as possible.

Dentures Customized Just for You

Whether you are getting a full set of dentures or a partial, our planning process includes talking ...
