Dr Craig Smith provides a wide range of general dental care using the latest technology. You will feel at ease from the time you enter our door….your comfort and ‘no stress environment’ with an air of “non- dentist office” is our first commitment to you!

We understand that coming to the dentist may cause an increase in anxiety, therefore you will be welcomed with a blanket, neck pillow and headphones if you like once you’re settled in. Nitrous oxide sedation is also available for those who prefer it while being treated.

We want to build a relationship with you though positive visits with us – listening to your needs and wants regarding your oral health and your smile…we value the trust you place in our doctors and team members. Providing patient education and the best care options for each individual so informed decisions can be made is our commitment to you.

Our Facilities and Equipment:

Digital imaging enables us to see beyond what can generally be detected during a visual exam, allowing the Dr. to examine the roots and nerves of teeth and diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors. Images also help to determine bone level and analyze the health of your bone.

The frequency regarding digital images depends on each patient’s individual needs. With digital imaging, radiation exposure is reduced by as much as 85% compared to traditional methods.

We discover cavities long before they can be detected by conventional methods thru the latest technology; if you have cavities and would prefer to have Laser-Assisted Restorations / no needles and costs no more, we can do that!

Other Services Provided:

Crown and Bridge, Porcelain Veneers, Root Canals, Dental Implants, Periodontal Therapy, Invisalign Braces, Oral Cancer Screenings

We look forward to welcoming you to our office – stop by or call us with any questions you may have!
