Her office features “ZOOM”, the 1 hour in-office tooth whitening procedure featured on “Extreme Makeover”. She is also a certified provider of “Invisalign”, a cosmetic orthodontic alternative to braces which is nearly invisible when worn on the teeth. Porcelain laminates and tooth colored fillings are also second nature to the growing aspect of available cosmetic alternatives offered. Her latest addition to her armamentarium, "DentalVibe" has made the discomfort associated with receiving dental injections (or shots) virtually non-existent. . For patients wishing to replace missing teeth; implants, fixed bridgework and dentures are all viable options.
