We are proud to offer a variety of dental services to meet the needs of all ages and dental conditions.

  • Braces

    It is never too early to keep an eye on your child’s oral development.

  • General Dentistry

    When people think of ways to improve their smile, they probably think about all of the cosmetic dentistry options out there.

  • N2O Sedation Dentistry

    Not everyone is a fan of visiting the dentist.

  • Pediatric Dentistry

    We know it’s important for you and your children to feel comfortable when visiting the dentist, and we make this our top priority.

Dr. Cohen is the best :) he was so good with my son, we will definitely be back.
Awesome service, timely and professional
Dr and hygienist were great. Everything was timely. My child, who is typically anxious at the dentist, had a positive and calm experience.
This practice is exceptional with children of all ages. I wish I would have found them sooner.
My son had never been to a dentist office before...only had been to the Mobile Dentist at school. He did wonderfully with your staff! He really liked […]
All the kids had great hygienists! Even my youngest, who is 3, had a great time and was super happy when she came back!
Both the Dentist and the tech were extremely kind, patient, gentle and interactive with my special needs daughter. I was very impressed!
I was flawless! I think I was more worried then my four year old but the doctor and staff are great. Very pleased :)
Great Job! On time and no wait, fast service, and great costumer service!
