Our dedicated and motivated team has one primary goal—your utmost comfort! We feel it’s important that you understand the treatment that you will be receiving so that you can relax during the procedure. Our staff is eager to answer any questions regarding your dental care or dental insurance. Please feel free to share with us your needs and concerns, as we all are here for you!

Our patients benefit from single-visit restorations including crowns, inlays & onlays, white fillings and veneers using a very high-tech piece of dental equipment called CEREC. If you are in need of a dental restoration, chances are CEREC can provide it in just one visit. CEREC technology allows us to digitally scan the area of your mouth where the dental restoration will be placed, designing a replacement restoration right there, and finally milling the final restoration during the same appointment.

Getting started as a new patient is easy. Part of our commitment to serving our patients includes providing information that helps them to make more informed decisions about their oral health needs. If you have any questions, please contact our office at (916) 961-5464 and one of our team members will be happy to assist you.
