At Lighthouse Dental Care, we differ from other professionals in the area because of our belief in providing our patients with the best possible dental experience. We offer sedation therapies to help ease the mind and body, so that the dentist’s chair does not have to be a place of fear. We believe that your comfort is directly related to how you will feel about the dentist’s chair in the future. Therefore, we will provide you with relaxation methods and anxiety-reducing aids that are right for you. While some of our patients find that a simple conversation with our caring staff eases their fears, others prefer and need the sedative therapies. Either way, we will help make your dental experience a pleasant and beneficial one.

The quality of care that patients receive at Lighthouse Dental Care is possible because of the amazing education and experience that both doctors have.
