Pediatric Services

Pediatric dental care is essential to supporting the oral health of your children and helping them set the foundation for a healthy lifestyle as they grow up. At Innovative Dental, our dentists pride themselves on providing compassionate and friendly service, enabling patients of all ages to enjoy a comfortable treatment experience. A positive relationship with the dentist can help establish good oral hygiene habits over the long-term, so we place a strong emphasis on patient education and preventative care measures. As patients get older, we also offer a number of cosmetic and orthodontic care options to promote healthy, confident smiles.


Dental cleanings are an essential part of keeping your smile healthy and bright. Following an oral exam, one of our skilled hygienists will typically perform a thorough dental cleaning by utilizing an advanced technique designed to clean your teeth more efficiently and effectively. This innovative cleaning technique utilizes less heat and water than alternative methods, and it has also been known to produce less sensitivity for your teeth and gums while providing a more comprehensive cleaning. Treatment times will vary depending on your specific needs, but dental cleanings at our office can typically be completed in as little as 30 minutes with this state-of-the-art technique.


Routine oral exams are an integral part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums while also helping to prevent future complications. During your exam, our experienced dental hygienists will thoroughly inspect the inside of your mouth to detect any existing issues you may have. Should any issues be present, our doctors will recommend a specific treatment plan that can address current concerns and help prevent problems from worsening. By receiving oral exams on a regular basis, you can help ensure that you and your family maintain an optimal level of oral health that makes you proud to smile.


Teeth grinding (bruxism) can lead to a number of concerns, including headaches, jaw pain, and prematurely worn or damaged teeth. Nightguards can protect the teeth at night while also helping decrease the strain on the jaw muscles caused by habitual teeth grinding. During a consultation, one of our dentists can assess your bite and dentition in order to determine whether a nightguard is necessary. The appliances are custom-made to fit comfortably in the mouth during sleep, and they can save you time, money, and stress over the long-term as they help prevent excess wear and damage to your teeth.

I love this place!! The coffee is amazing, staff is ALWAYS friendly! Sandra was SO gentle with my extremely sensitive teeth, this was by far the best cleaning/exam experience that I have had in years! Would absolutely recommend Innovative Dental!

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy involves the sterilization of infected nerves inside the tooth and can often be necessary to save a tooth that has severe damage or decay. Following the extraction of bacteria, the nerve chamber of the tooth will be sealed with a durable filling material and the tooth will often require a porcelain crown to provide long-lasting protection. At Innovative Dental, our doctors can perform your root canal therapy and fit your tooth with a customized crown, all in a single office visit. Once your infected tooth has been cleaned, sterilized, and filled, he will utilize CEREC® technology to precisely design and mill a porcelain crown based on the unique dimensions of your tooth. Your restoration will then be color-matched and bonded securely for the most natural-looking results. This entire process takes approximately two hours to complete, eliminating the need for multiple appointments and temporary restorations between visits.

Tooth Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings can offer a durable, aesthetically-pleasing solution to cavities and tooth decay. Also called white fillings or composite fillings, this common dental treatment involves the use of tooth-colored resin material to fill cavities and crevices in order to provide strength, stability, and natural-looking results. Tooth-colored fillings have come a long way from the traditional, mercury-based fillings used in dentistry years ago, and they can provide an effective solution for patients of any age.

Dental Crowns

Porcelain dental crowns can be an effective solution for restoring form and function to damaged teeth while also improving their appearance. Utilizing our CEREC® technology, we can often provide custom-made dental crowns right here in our office in just one visit. During the procedure, CEREC®’s 3D imaging software enables us to take a digital impression of your teeth and design your crown with the utmost precision. Once the design has been completed, your crown will be fabricated out of durable porcelain material using CEREC® milling technology and then secured to your tooth with strong oral cement. Through proper care and maintenance, your porcelain dental crowns can last for decades.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges can be an excellent option if you are missing one or more consecutive teeth along your gumline. At Innovative Dental, our doctors use zirconia—a durable, non-metallic material that more closely resembles the natural color of teeth—to construct dental bridges right here in our office, making us one of the only practices in the area to offer this convenience. Dental bridges are often supported on either side by other restorations, such as dental crowns or dental implants, depending on your specific needs. Ultimately, this effective cosmetic treatment can provide beautiful results while helping to improve speaking, chewing, and a variety of other problems associated with missing teeth.
