    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    Dr. Kucaba's Care Philosophy

    The best dentistry is no dentistry or as little as possible to solve you dental needs.

    ×

    Dr. Kucaba says...

    90% of the patients tell the doctor what is wrong.  The problem is the doctor does not listen.  I take the time to listen and evaluate your needs and desires so I can understand what is the problem and formulate a dental treatment plan the will take care of your needs.

    Dr. Kucaba says...

    I have utilized the most advanced techniques and technology to treat gum disease, replace missing teeth and stabilize loose dentures with dental implant and construct dental appliances for those patients who are CPAP intolerant.
