Earning Trust – One Patient at a Time
Our first goal, from the moment you walk in the door, is to earn a feeling of trust. We believe the absolute best general dentistry we can provide will only take place when there is a strong bond of trust with our patients, and we’re all working together toward the common goals of healthy teeth and gums and a beautiful smile.
Dentistry for Adults
Whether your dental needs are a complete exam, cleaning, or anything in between, our staff will provide you with exceptional care. Your six-month visits keep your teeth clean and healthy and help prevent problems down the road by letting us spot them early. We can address your unique concerns and develop a relationship that ensures continuity of care. We look forward to meeting you!
Dentistry for Children
Our pediatric dentist strives to make children of all ages feel at ease and enjoy themselves, so bring the whole family along! You can rest assured your child will receive the latest advancements in children’s dentistry, delivered with caring, thoughtfulness, and compassion. We look forward to seeing them for their first dental visit with us when they are two years old and watching them grow year after year.
A Healthy Smile, A Healthy Body
Did you know that the cause of most tooth loss is not decay? It’s gum disease. And recent studies have established a link between gum disease and your overall health. The good news is that gum disease can be treated successfully, often without surgery. Our periodontist commitment to you includes paying meticulous attention to all of your needs for healthy teeth and gums so you not only look your best but also have optimum overall health.
Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
Dental implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy smile. They can be used to replace any number of lost teeth, providing a strong, permanent foundation and stimulating healthy bone growth in the jaw, and can even “lock in” dentures for a secure fit. Because we handle the entire process from implant placement to crown fabrication, there’s no need to be referred to another office. Call for a no-obligation implant consultation today.
Restoring a Healthy Smile with Crowns & Bridges
Damaged teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile, but your functionality in everyday life, too. It’s important to address chips, cracks, or other damage to prevent them from causing further problems later on. Crowns, inlays, and onlays can repair and strengthen damaged teeth, while bridges can fill in a gap where a tooth has been lost or needs to be extracted. Dr. Diep is skilled at providing beautiful, strong restorations for a return to a healthy, natural-looking smile.
Oral Cancer – Minimize Your Risk
It’s an often unknown statistic that oral cancer causes one American death every hour. For 40 years, this mortality rate hasn’t changed. But it’s not all bad news. Early detection means a 90% cure rate for oral cancer. That’s why we conduct a visual screening for oral cancer at every six-month checkup and cleaning. If the hygienist or doctor sees anything that gives them cause for concern, they’ll refer you to an oral surgeon. This screening could literally save your life!
No Mercury! No Metals! No Kidding!
While silver-mercury amalgam fillings are a reasonable restoration, they do have certain shortcomings. Metal does not bond well to teeth, so decay can and does eventually leak into the tooth. But the biggest reason many of our patients are choosing the white bonded fillings has to do with the way they look. We offer modern restorations that are a natural-looking white, contain no metals, and can actually strengthen your teeth. They also bond very tightly with the healthy part of the tooth so there is much less chance of decay in the future.
Sterilization is taken very seriously in our office. In addition to cleaning and sterilizing all instruments after every use, single-use tools are used where needed. Instruments are sterilized after each use with a special unit called an autoclave, which is regularly monitored by an independent lab to ensure the highest level of safety and cleanliness. Your health is too important to us to take even the slightest risk.
The Latest Dental Technology
With our iTero™ intra-oral scanner, Dr. Diep is able to make accurate digital impressions that usually eliminate the old uncomfortable tray and putty impression. It can be used for crowns, whitening trays, and more. This technology ensures a more precise fit and improved accuracy, and you’ll spend less time at the dentist and more time enjoying your new smile.
The dentist works hand-in-hand with patients to create a bond of teamwork. The amazing intra-oral camera is a miniature video camera that displays a closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision. You’ll love how this works!
Traditional dental X-rays have been “good enough,” but digital X-rays provide clearer and much more accurate pictures of what’s going on inside a patient’s mouth. This makes it easier for the doctor to diagnose issues. Leaks or breaks in fillings that used to go unnoticed, often leading to root canals, can now be found and treated before major damage is done. We can also view your entire mouth in one shot, including the upper and lower jaws, with panoramic digital images.
