How can we help you?

We provide many quality dental treatments and services to our patients. Your dental health is our highest priority, and our care and advice can help guide you through a lifetime of bright and healthy smiles.

In order to better serve you, we've included a list of commonly-asked questions below.   


We offer nitrous oxide analgesia (laughing gas), which is the safest anti-anxiety treatment available. Unlike taking a pill, the effect is worn off as soon as the appointment is over, and you can drive yourself home. It's safe and effective for children as well.

No. Relying soley on a "toothpaste for sensitive teeth" may just mask the source of your teeth's sensitivity. The best way to help sensitive teeth is to see a dentist in order to determine the cause of the sensitivity.

Toothpaste may only temporarily disguise the problem, allowing it to get worse. A cavity, bad bite or root erosion may be the source of your teeth's sensitivity, and a desensitizing toothpaste may only help for a short period of time. A dentist, however, can help you discover the source and provide treatment options for long-term relief.
