In dentistry, as in life, knowledge is power, and we believe that arming our patients with knowledge - about their oral health and comfort, about their cosmetic options, and about advanced and effective treatments - allows them to make the best decisions for their health. Our team takes time to listen to concerns and provide honest answers to questions, enabling us to empower our patients to take their oral health and beauty to the next level. This includes providing personalized information on how to optimize your at-home routine as well as information about treatment options that may hasten you to your goals.
Each patient is unique. To us, that's not a cliche, it's an absolute fact - and one we honor by providing honest and useful information, personalized to speak to your exact needs.
Dental problems vary from person to person. There may be the physical pain of a toothache, the inability to enjoy certain foods, or the distress and embarrassment of an unattractive smile. But not everyone feels comfortable visiting the dentist.
Dental care is essential for optimal health. We are dedicated to helping anxious patients find comfort before, during, and after their visits, enabling even the most nervous dental patient to receive the quality care they need and deserve.
We are pleased to offer sedation dentistry options that can help ease anxiety, encourage comfort, and produce a calm that lasts throughout your procedure. If you believe that this service would be of use to you, we would be happy to discuss the option during your initial consultation. The safe and effective types of dental sedation that we offer are suitable for most patients and can be used for any of our services, including basic cleanings.
In addition to sedation options, we help create a comfortable experience for each of our patients by maintaining the highest standards of care and service. If you have sworn off the dentist out of fear, call us today to learn how we can help you find ease and comfort before and during your dental procedure.
We offer a comprehensive range of general dentistry services including:
- Routine cleanings and examinations
- Fluoride treatments
- Gum disease treatment
- Root canal
- Tooth colored fillings
These services are geared towards preventing, detecting, and treating common oral health problems and may be useful at varying times to most of our patients. Cleanings and examinations, part of the foundation of a healthy smile, should occur every six months for optimal effectiveness. During these visits, we will work directly with you and your needs to help you develop an at-home routine that serves to protect your teeth and gums for years to come.
In addition to general services, we offer a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments such as:
Some of these options have both cosmetic and functional purposes, allowing them to enhance and strengthen your smile. Others are simply designed for beauty.
As a prosthodontist, Dr. Phelps has received additional training in the creation of false teeth and tooth replacement options. Among those offered by Dr. Phelps are:
Dr. Phelps also offers treatment for neuromuscular dental issues such as TMJ.
We utilize advanced dental technology to help ensure absolute patient comfort and safety, and to help ensure the most pleasing and effective results. During your biannual examinations, safe and comfortable digital diagnostic tools are used to detect even the smallest of oral health issues. This allows Dr. Phelps to provide swift treatment for issues like decay and infection, helping preserve more of your natural tooth - an effort that can be assisted with the tooth colored fillings and CEREC restorations we offer.
Before placing restorations, we use 3D imaging and digital photographs to carefully plan your smile. This allows us to better predict outcomes and gives you, the patient, a clear idea of what your restorations can accomplish.
3D smile planning can be done for both cosmetic and general dentistry restorations and is commonly used for planning tooth replacement services as well.
When you visit Dr. Phelps, you receive the full, individualized attention you deserve. We strive to provide you with extraordinary customer service, and we have a lengthy track record of doing just that. Our goal is to make you well and whole again.
This commitment to meeting your needs and goals extends to the dentist's chair as well. We are committed to providing you with procedures that safely and effectively improve your oral health and beauty - and insist on the highest quality restorations to help ensure the longest-lasting results.
Our procedures are often life-changing for our patients, many of whom never imagined that they could overcome severe dental anxiety and achieve the beautiful smile they've long dreamed of.
