The Local Dentist Office That Specializes in Adult Dentistry

Our practice offers a full range of dental services, from general and cosmetic dentistry, to anxiety-relieving sedation dentistry. Our general dental services include examinations, professional dental cleanings, oral cancer screenings, dental sealants, fillings, restorations, root canals, crowns, bridges, dentures, tooth extractions, gum disease treatment, and protective snore guards. We perform many cosmetic procedures, such as bonding, porcelain veneers, and the teeth whitening options of in-office bleaching, Smile Perfected™ 20-Minute Whitening, the Zoom!® Teeth Whitening system, and take-home teeth whitening kits. For straighter teeth and better alignment, we offer both traditional braces and Invisalign® invisible braces. And because many people have dental anxiety or fear about visiting the dentist, we also perform sedation dentistry to provide nervous patients with a more relaxed experience. Ask our staff for more details about any of the services we offer.

We Welcome Insurance and Offer Financing Options

Our South Bend dentists and staff believe that everyone deserves good dental care at every stage of life. That’s why we offer many ways to make care much more affordable. Our practice accepts most forms of dental insurance, takes the DentRite® discount dental plan, and offers flexible financing options to make dental costs more manageable. We also regularly feature special cost saving offers on highly requested dental services. Ask our helpful staff for details about our many convenient payment options.

Today my son had unexpected extraction’s, due to infection. Dr. Jess, and another woman I can’t remember her name, dark hair, made a super traumatic event so much easier. My son was Waylon, and I was the mom crying in the corner and holding his feet. You guys were all so sweet and got a tough job done! I loved dr. Jess absolutely so patient and thorough! I was so relieved when it was done and he is awesome tonight like nothing even happened today! Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart
