Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dechavez "We believe that the key to providing excellent dental services is to provide patients the most beautiful smile and supporting great dental health in a manner that works for them. Our state-of-the art dental technology and computer systems enable us to treat patients efficiently. For instance, it is possible to provide patients with a sturdy, beautiful veneer or permanent cap in about an hour. In many instances, a complete cosmetic reconstruction can be done in one day.

We are a cosmetic dentist that offers services like Invisalign®, Veneers, Dental Implants, Zoom Teeth Whitening and more. We also perform emergency dentist services that include root canals, crowns, sedation dentistry, and bridges. 

As a local dentist, we create lifelong relationships with our patients and their families and work to ensure that they receive treatments in a comfortable and relaxed environment."
