The Dental Express Core Philosophy

These days, dentistry has become more of a business than a genuine medical service. With patients being sold left and right on treatments they don’t need, integrity is hard to come by.


Not to mention, going to the dentist doesn’t exactly top everyone’s list of fun things to do. But who says trips to the dentist have to be something worth dreading?


At Dental Express, we turn all the common dental stigmas on their heads. Whenever you visit any of our locations, you can expect your experience to be warm, welcoming, comfortable, and consistent. Our goal is to provide you and your family with quality dental care you can trust. No upsells. No unnecessary treatments.


We believe discovering your ideal smile is a collaborative effort, with “For You, About You Dentistry” as our main philosophy. No matter where you are on your dental health journey, we’ll meet you there without judgment and build a personalized plan together to give you the empowering smile you’ve always wanted.


When you entrust us with your smile, you become part of the Dental Express family.

Our Affordable Services

Regular dental exams are one of the pillars of dental health. When you come in for your exam, we’ll take an in-depth look at your mouth and teeth to evaluate issues like tooth decay, cavities, or gum disease. From there, we’ll plan the best course of action to create your ideal smile.

Fluoride treatments use concentrated fluoride levels to provide an extra line of defense against tooth decay and cavities. These treatments are usually included as part of your routine dental cleaning and help patients of all ages maintain a healthy smile.

If a cavity eats away at your enamel, then protecting your teeth and choosing the right filling for you is our main priority. Tooth-colored fillings help stop further decay, restore the strength of your teeth, and blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile. If you want a natural-looking solution to cavities or to replace your amalgam filling, ask your dentist about tooth-colored fillings.

Did your kid lose a tooth at soccer practice? Did one of your fillings fall out on Christmas Eve? Whatever your emergency may be, we’re here to provide you with fast, quality treatment to manage your pain, fix the issue, and get you back to smiling as soon as possible.

Tired of your removable dentures? It might be time to look into All-on-4 implants. This treatment involves four dental implants put in place to support a full set of dentures. The process usually takes place over several months and requires several follow-up appointments. Believe it or not, you can treat these dentures just like your natural teeth, without the hassle, adhesives, or dietary restrictions that come with regular dentures.

A crown is like a suit of armor for your tooth. If one of your teeth is cracked, decayed, or discolored, a crown can protect it from further damage. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, or both and can be colored to blend in with your other teeth, maintaining a natural-looking beautiful smile.

Have a chipped or discolored tooth? Bonding and contouring involve using composite resin to correct your tooth’s shape and color, without the hefty price tag of other cosmetic procedures.

Just like crowns are a suit of armor for your teeth, porcelain veneers are like protective helmets. Customized and secured to the front of your teeth, veneers renew your smile by covering up crooked, chipped, stained, or decayed teeth. This quick and painless restorative treatment usually takes just two visits.

It’s as cool as it sounds! We use high-tech laser technology to zap away periodontitis. This state-of-the-art treatment is a faster, more accurate treatment for periodontal disease than traditional procedures — Not to mention, you’ll recover much faster too.

Crown lengthening is usually an aesthetic treatment that removes some of your gum tissue to reveal more of your tooth. In some cases, it’s used to create space for a crown, filling, or other restoration. This treatment is perfect for anyone who feels their smile is too “gummy.”

When tooth decay gets out of hand, it can cause an infection in the pulp of your tooth. Also called endodontic treatment, root canals are how we treat these infections. During treatment, we remove the damaged pulp, clean the cavity, and fill the tooth, leaving you with a repaired and fully functioning smile.

Think of dental sealants as raincoats for your teeth. Once in place, they block the buildup of bacteria, tartar, plaque, and food particles, protecting your teeth from decay and cavities. Sealants are the perfect treatment for patients who struggle with cavities or have difficulty maintaining healthy dental habits at home.

Fostering healthy dental habits at a young age is the best way to ensure your little one has a healthy smile for years to come. We’re happy to provide pediatric dental services in a fun, comfortable, and educational environment that will have your child excited about dental health. At Dental Express, taking your little one to the dentist is nothing to stress about.

We do our best to preserve your natural teeth as long as possible, but when a tooth is beyond repair or threatening to disrupt your overall dental health, an extraction may be the best step forward. We offer different sedation options to make the experience as comfortable as possible and set you up with all the information and necessary medications you need for a speedy recovery.

Dental implants are the most reliable and natural-looking way to restore your smile after losing a tooth. This treatment involves placing a metal post – usually made of titanium – into your gums that acts as a strong base for a crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants are beneficial for anyone struggling with speaking or chewing issues due to a missing tooth.

Dental bridges help bridge the gap between missing teeth. Whether supported by your natural teeth, a dental implant, or both, bridges keep your remaining teeth from shifting and causing chewing issues. If you’ve lost multiple teeth, getting a bridge can improve your oral health and restore the look of your smile.

Dentures are an excellent solution for anyone who’s lost several or more teeth. We offer customized partial, full-removable, or implant-retained dentures to give you back your smile and have you chewing and speaking with confidence again.

With all the coffee and sugar-heavy drinks we consume these days, maintaining a white smile can be challenging. To help you reach your ideal smile, we offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments. See results in just twenty minutes at the office and within a week at home.

If you have an intense fear of going to the dentist, we’ll work with you in any way we can to make your experience as comfortable as possible. When longer procedures or even regular dental cleanings become too stressful, we’re happy to offer nitrous oxide sedation to help you relax. When you come to Dental Express, we want you to feel welcomed without judgment, no matter your comfort level.

This powerful treatment helps fight gum disease by cleaning out tartar and plaque beneath the gum line. Once we remove the harmful bacteria, we’ll smooth out your enamel to discourage any further buildup. If this treatment sounds scary, don’t worry! We’re happy to offer local anesthesia to numb the area.

This treatment works to remove any remaining or newly developed infection after root canal therapy. If you find you’re still in pain after a root canal, we’ll go in and clean out your tooth canals to give you a pain-free smile again.

Need to straighten things out? Using clear, removable, personalized aligners, you can even out your smile without the hassle and dietary restrictions of metal braces. Whenever it’s time to eat, just pop them out. No food getting stuck in your teeth. No flossing around metal braces. Just a straight, happy smile!
