Knew what they were doing and did it fast and efficient, too. If I have a question, I know I can always ask and they'll tell me what and why. I have been to a lot of dentists over my lifespan and this is in the top bracket!!! And that is no joke; they ARE good!!!!! --Rich
Friendly, easy to work with, always willing to accommodate I forgot my appointment and they called to see if I was still planning on it. They are great with my children. All my children love going and always get excited when it's their turn to visit the dentist. --Kelly
Best dentist ever I usually don't like going to the dentist, but when I went here I felt really comfortable. They did a really good job cleaning my teeth and explained any problems I had with my teeth and told how to take better care of my teeth. --Emma

Periodontal

Periodontal disease is an inflammation of the gums that can lead to loss of bone that supports the teeth. It is caused by plaque, a sticky film that is always forming on your teeth. Plaque gives a home to bacteria that produce harmful toxins. If teeth are not cleaned well, the toxins can irritate and inflame the gums. It is a common disease that affects people of all ages. Untreated periodontal disease can result in tooth loss. It is possible to have periodontal disease without pain or other obvious symptoms. That is why it is important to visit the dentist regularly then any problems can be caught in the early stages.
