We see all ages. It is best to start children seeing a dentist when they are three years old so we start seeing children as early as three years of age. We see children, adolescents, adults. We’ve had patients over a 100 years old in our office so we treat children and adults and older adults. We like treating them all.

Advanced Dental Technology
Our Plano office offers some of the latest cutting-edge technology in the industry.
- Digital X-rays: Our high-tech full panoramic machine lets us take incredibly clear images of your mouth to help us accurately diagnose your problem. Unlike traditional X-rays, these are quicker and safer because they expose you to far less radiation.
- IntraOral cameras: These cameras allow us to show you what’s going on in your mouth in real time. As we move the small, pen-like camera around in your mouth, you’ll be able to see the picture enlarged on a monitor. This magnification also allows us to catch some problems that we couldn’t see otherwise so that we can quickly diagnose and treat you.
- Cavitron Prophy-Jet: This no-drill system allows us to remove plaque and clean and polish your teeth with just air, water, and a baking soda or other mildly abrasive solution. It’s more comfortable for you and helps protect your tooth structure.
Comfortable Atmosphere and Amenities
Going to the dentist should not be uncomfortable! We offer several options to help you relax, including:
- Head rests
- Relaxing music
- Flat-screen TVs with DirectTV in every room, so you can choose what to watch
