We’re here to support you on your journey toward confidence and beauty.

We put patient care and comfort as our top priorities. One of the things we hear from our patients is about dental anxiety. We understand! Dental anxiety is a real problem that needs to be addressed.

We’re experts in helping our patients manage their anxiety by preparing them for their follow-up appointments, taking the time to explain everything, and answering all their questions. This is what you can expect from us. Our goal is to help you feel comfortable and provide outstanding service.

To further help you have a stress-free experience, we offer several patient comforts like cozy pillows, warm blankets, your favorite shows, and sedation dentistry. Our sedation dentistry options include nitrous oxide (laughing gas), which will help you feel at ease during your treatment.

With our caring dental staff, dental sedation options, and patient comforts, we’re confident you’ll have a great experience in our office.

Transforming Smiles, Transforming Lives

Eric's journey to self-confidence: how crowns led to his first-ever selfie.

At Smile Connections Family Dental, we believe that every smile tells a story, and Eric’s journey is a testament to the transformative power of dental care. Eric came to us feeling self-conscious about his teeth, and after a personalized consultation and much discussion, we decided that crowns would be the perfect solution to restore his confidence. Our dedicated team carefully crafted and fitted his crowns, resulting in a stunning new smile that Eric couldn’t wait to show off. For the first time in his life, he felt confident enough to take a selfie and proudly share his smile with the world. Watch Eric’s testimonial to see how Smile Connections Family Dental helped him achieve a radiant smile and a renewed sense of self-assurance.

“Very friendly & welcoming staff. They were able to answer questions when asked & explained everything they were going to do beforehand & during the procedure. Very caring & helpful regarding insurance. So excited to have them as my dental care team.”
