    • Craniofacial Sleep Medicine & TMJ Treatment for every age. We utilize custom oral appliance therapies (OAT) and the phenomenal HealthyStart® system, which resolves sleep disordered breathing issues by opening the airway, and at the same time, leveraging natural growth processes to perfectly straighten teeth without braces. Visit for further information.
    • Natural, Tooth-Colored Fillings beautifully restore teeth without metal or mercury.
    • Comprehensive Orthodontics for youth and adults, with clear or metal bracket options. The research-based, FASTBRACES® technology we utilize is statistically-proven to beautifully straighten your smile more safely, more quickly (typically six months or less!), more comfortably and with less relapse for about half the cost of traditional braces.

    • VELscope® Advanced Oral Cancer Screening detects oral cancer lesions invisible to the naked eye and at earlier stages, enabling more timely treatment and drastically increasing survival rates.
    • Lumineers® by Cerinate, a superior cosmetic porcelain veneer, actually strengthens teeth while providing a virtually painless, beautiful smile makeover, requiring no shots and very little – if any – drilling.
    • uPhoria® Chair-side Bleaching, the gold standard in whitening, is the most advanced system available. Utilizing sono-chemistry, it quickly and affordably whitens teeth up to four shades in four minutes without tooth sensitivity and can be conveniently scheduled with your routine cleaning.
