Procedures & Resources


Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy

Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy (LAPT) is a gentle, conservative, non-invasive method of treating gum disease without cutting, suturing or removing tissue. Using a precision laser we are able to kill up to 99% of the disease causing bacteria in the periodontal pockets.


CT Scan

A state-of-art, ultra-low-dose radiation way to capture high resolution three dimensional images of a patient facial features, teeth, and bone to allow us to diagnosis and to treatment plan a wide range of therapeutic options to include the placement of dental implants and advanced bone grafting techniques.

Dental Implant Supported Dentures are firmly anchored to the jawbone. This helps to prevent bone loss and mimics the feel of natural teeth.

No More Loose Dentures

For more information on how our collective approach to treatment care can transform the lives of your patients currently with dentures or who need dentures soon, please contact us.

Advanced Sedation

To assist patients with anxiety issues, we offer sedation options that can be customized to fit the patient’s desire in light of the procedure(s) to be performed. We can take the edge of patient’s anxiety or even achieve “twilight” sleep – the goal is patient comfort.
