Our Family-Friendly Dental Services

At Village Dental, we offer a comprehensive array of dental treatments to address any oral health issue you may have:


We provide routine preventive care such as teeth cleanings and exams, dental sealants, fluoride treatments, custom athletic mouthguards and nightguards, sleep apnea appliances, and oral cancer screenings. Moreover, our digital X-rays and intraoral cameras help us detect and treat potential dental issues before they become worse!


Restore your smile with tooth-colored fillings, dental bridges, full and partial dentures, dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, or root canal therapy. Plus, our CEREC technology allows us to craft beautiful same-day crowns, and our soft tissue lasers treat gum disease without intrusive surgery.


If you’re looking to improve your smile cosmetically, we offer in-office teeth whitening, take-home whitening kits, porcelain veneers, and Invisalign®.


For Your Comfort

We understand that visiting the dentist can be intimidating, but don’t worry. We take great pride in having a warm, welcoming atmosphere backed by a friendly, personable team. Our goal is for you to feel right at home while you’re in our office. When you come in, feel free to grab a complimentary beverage before your appointment begins. If you need any special accommodations like sedation dentistry, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us before your appointment date and we’ll be happy to discuss your needs.

For Your Dental Care

We continually strive to stay at the forefront of the dental field to ensure that we’re providing the most up-to-date care for our patients. We’ve invested in advanced, state-of-the-art tools and equipment, including:


Digital X-Rays

Our 3D, digital X-rays produce precise, almost-instant imaging. They also emit less radiation compared to traditional X-ray machines.


Intraoral Cameras

We utilize intraoral cameras for patient education and treatment planning. Intraoral cameras allow us to show patients a dentist’s view of their mouths so that we can walk them through their diagnosis.



Traditional crowns generally take anywhere from two to three visits to create and place. However, we utilize CEREC technology which lets us design your new crown using advanced 3D software and fabricate your crown in our office using our on-site milling unit. We can design, create, and place your crown in a single visit!


Soft Tissue Lasers

In the past, gum disease required intrusive surgery to repair. Now, we utilize soft tissue lasers to treat periodontal disease and help your gums regenerate and flourish.
