Dr. Bruce Carstensen, DMD
We are a general dental practice that has been in this neighborhood since 1987. We provide a wide range of dental services including CEREC dental restorations (all ceramic), tooth whitening, emergencies and yes, we can probably improve your smile. More recently our dental focus has shifted to the field of dental implantology and if you are not familiar with what dental implants can do for you, you should find out-especially if you suffer from a poorly functioning lower denture. We have recently invested in state-of-the-art Cone Beam CT Scan equipment which helps in the diagnosis and treatment planning for implants and bone grafting procedures. Dr. Carstensen is a graduate of the Masters Clinician in Dental Implantology conducted by the Gide Institute in association with Loma Linda University. Implant placement and restoration have become more predictable in recent years and can produce wonderful results with proper planning and application.
