Our approach to dentistry is one of prevention. Our goal is to detect potential problems before they show symptoms. We know preventing dental disease is easier and less costly for our patients than repairing the damage.

Crowns & Bridges

Both crowns and most bridges are what are termed fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike devices such as dentures, that must be removed and cleaned daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants and can only be removed by a dentist.

Dental Implants

Dental implants offer you a simple solution for tooth loss problems, aside from improving your self-image. Dental implants facilitate chewing, reduce movement and friction among false and natural teeth, as well as provide support for bridge work.

Teeth Whitening

Let your beautiful teeth shine with our convenient whitening options. We offer a variety of teeth whitening treatment options for you to choose from.

Root Canals

Root canals are a possible treatment option for teeth with severe heat, cold, or bite sensitivity. It involves cleaning and shaping the root canal system then sealing it to prevent future infection.


Invisalign is a modern approach to straightening teeth; using a series of custom-made series aligner trays, patients can straighten and improve the appearance of their smile.

New Patient Exams

Excellent oral health starts with a new patient exam at Associates of Dentistry. Schedule a new patient exam, meet our caring staff, and get on the path to dental wellness today!
