Our Specialty Services


For those seeking a discreet method of orthodontics, our dentist offers state-of-the-art Invisalign® clear aligners. These aligners are custom fit to your teeth and are nearly invisible while being worn. They can be easily removed so you are able to eat and drink whatever you want and allow for improved cleaning of your teeth and gums. In many cases, Invisalign treatment can be quicker than traditional orthodontics and less painful.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a dangerous condition that causes those suffering to cease breathing for several seconds during the night, sometimes hundreds of times. This restricts airflow to the brain and also can cause mood changes, loud snoring, and daytime fatigue. We offer sleep apnea treatments in the form of oral appliances that are worn while you sleep to shift your jaw into a more appropriate position. Many times, TMJ disorder is linked to sleep apnea and by treating cases of TMJ disorder, sleep apnea can be improved as well.

Full Arch Dental Implants

Dentures are a common solution for people missing all their teeth, but often dentures can be uncomfortable or not provide the strong bite you are looking for. We offer full arch dental implants to restore your entire arch of missing teeth with comfortable, lifelike and strong teeth. We can often use your denture with dental implants to create an implant supported denture. With proper care, your implants and new teeth can last you the rest of your life.

Teeth Whitening

Yellowed or stained teeth can often cause embarrassment and the loss of self-confidence. We offer both in-office teeth whitening with the Power Whitening system, and KöR® Teeth Whitening take home trays. Professional teeth whitening is often superior to over-the-counter strips because it offers brighter results with more even and predictable outcomes. With a bright white smile, many people experience an improved quality of life.
