Dr. Urban's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Urban "Expert care coupled with personalized service Our practice started in 1990 with the vision to treat each patient with state of the art dental care and knowledge in an individual and unrushed manner. Our goal is that each patient feel that they are a part of our dental family. We strive to help our patients keep their smile for life and improve not only their oral health but their overall health as well. Listening to our patients, educating them on their oral health, and meeting their expectations are our primary concerns."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Urban "It's important as a dentist that I spend quality time listening to you as a patient. By focusing on your individual needs, I can more effectively address your concerns during treatment and provide the proper leading-edge care so that you can get the smile of your dreams.

Higher Education for a higher level of care The best part of what I do is seeing the look of pleasure on a patient's face after I've renewed their smile. My goal is to help people look their best and feel their best through advanced dental care. That's what makes all the hard work and time in school worthwhile.

Sharing experiences to provide advanced care Interaction with my peers is extremely important. The first benefit that comes to mind is the exchange of ideas and the free flow of information that has had a direct influence on my practice over the years. The second benefit is the knowledge that something I may have recommended to a colleague has made a difference for a patient I'll never meet. That gives me great satisfaction.

Dedicated to giving you the best care Over the years, I've come to understand what people in this area have come to expect from their dentist. My patients have high expectations and in order to meet and exceed those expections, I have maintained an exacting continuing-education program. In this way, my dentistry always continues to improve.

  • Advanced Training: The Pankey Institute
  • Continuing Education Includes: Esthetcs, TMJ Therapy, Occlusion & Implants, Radiographic Techniques & Interpretation, Provisionalization, Mastering the New Technology in Endodontics, Teeth Whitening Techniques, Advances in Dental Materials, Anterior & Posterior Composite, Direct & Indirect Restorations, Porcelain Veneers, Crown & Bridge Options, Advances in Cosmetic Dentistry, Soft-Tissue Management

Treating you with compassion In a world of impersonal HMOs and dental clinics, it's nice to know that when you visit, you'll experience a level of patient care that's unique to my practice. I use advanced techniques so that your visits will be more comfortable. When you come to Lifetime Smile™, be assured that we'll give you a reason to smile."

Painless treatments, he is also gentle with kids. Took both my kids for cleaning and fillings, and they didn't complain anything.

I had been avoiding the dentist following some bad experiences in the past. This office and staff has turned that around. I LOVE the staff here. They are attentive and explain everything as they go. They are patient and caring.
