What is Gentle Dentistry? Our Dentist Explains


At Advanced Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we strive to make our patients feel as comfortable as possible. To achieve this goal, we give our patients exceptional care. We also practice gentle dentistry, which means all our patients receive compassionate care with as little pain as possible.

At our office, we understand these common fears and want help you overcome them. Our staff is friendly and caring. We pay attention to the environment we provide for each patient and the care given from the time you call us on the phone or enter our doors.

These offerings go above and beyond what most other dentist offices offer because we value you and want you to feel at ease. We want our patients to experience as little pain as possible.

Our doctors, hygienists, and dental assistants are gentle and considerate in nature. In the medical world, patients are often herded in and herded out, without particular care paid to each individual. Wait times can be high.

But not at our office. We personally care for each patient. We offer flexible, longer office hours to reduce wait times. Plus, we practice minimally invasive dentistry.

This is great news for your entire family. By staying up-to-date and following scientific advances, we are able to perform the least amount of invasive dentistry needed while restoring teeth to their normal condition. We also use long-lasting dental materials to reduce the need for future repairs — meaning you’ll have to make fewer trips to the dentist.

Another goal of ours is to educate patients to care for their own teeth. Preventative care is important for maintaining a healthy smile you love to show off.
