We provide most routine dental care, including:

On occasion, we will refer you to a specialist–for a difficult root canal, for example, or for multiple wisdom tooth extractions.  The specialists we work with most often are listed in the various treatment sections; generally, they will not schedule you directly, requiring a referral from us for specific treatment or evaluation.

Our office considers itself an “extremely typical” office.  We don’t specialize in high-dollar full mouth reconstructions, laser whitening, or 24 hour smile makeovers.  We don‘t have an espresso machine in the waiting room, or a massage therapist on staff.  (We try to minimize your time in the waiting room anyway; mostly you just want to get your visit over with.)  What we do provide is quality dental care without frills, at reasonable fees; as an example, our porcelain crowns are $963 as of 12/1/12.  We don’t think we’re the Wal-Mart of dentistry–we sure as heck don’t get our crowns made in China–but we’re not Nordstrom, either.  And unlike big city dentists, we do most of our own extractions and root canals, as well as the more basic implants.  We invest in the technology and continuing education necessary to keep up with current developments in dentistry.  We own and are proficient with the CEREC one-visit crown technology, and we use digital low-dose X-rays.  Dr. Dave stays ACLS certified, but he would prefer not to  use that training–please have your cardiac events elsewhere, thank you.  If you’re looking for a fancy office with free samples of avocado body balm, this probably isn’t the place for you, but if you’ve seen Dr. Dave’s car, you probably figured that out on your own . . .
