We cater to dental “cowards” and offer sedation dentistry
We recognize and understand that most people experience some level of anxiety before going to the dentist. For some, the anxiety interferes with their ability to sleep the night before their appointment. For others, the anxiety slowly escalates days ahead of their appointment.
Knowing this, Dentistry for the Entire Family offers a variety of sedation dentistry options to enable you or a loved one to take the first step back to restoring your smile and oral health.
We offer nitrous oxide, a relaxing gas, that you breathe during your dental appointment. The effect promotes your body to relax (no more white knuckles) and enables you to complete necessary dental treatment. We also offer an oral sedative option* that provides an even deeper feeling of relaxation while still being awake and able to respond as necessary during treatment.
* Requires an adult, licensed driver to bring you to and from your dental appointment.
We promise NO scolding, NO lectures, and NO judgments
No matter how hong it’s been since your last dental appointment, we promise to not scold, lecture, or judge you (or your loved one) about the condition or about the needs regarding dental treatment. We are a team of compassionate dental professionals whose primary goal is to HELP you restore your smile and your oral health.
We have over 2,000 five-star reviews published on the internet
Our patients say it best. We invite you to read reviews from our family of existing patients, many of whom have been with us for more than four decades. Many patients rave about our show, tell, do approach to dental care as well as our love to use the latest and greatest in dental technology to help diagnose, educate, and complete dental treatment.
Patients especially like how our technology enables them to see what we see. Visuals (digital x rays and high HD photos) make it easier for you the patient to better understand what’s going on and make an informed decision regarding dental treatment.
Five-star dental appointment experience
Believe it or not, Dr. John Cretzmeyer (dentist and owner) was not a fan of going to the dentist himself growing up. Since becoming a dentist himself, he has committed to investing in technology, education, and “creature-comforts” to make going to the dentist a positive dental experience. We offer a wide array of dental appointment comfort essentials including:
- Watch TV with noise-canceling headphones
- Pain-free, gentle anesthesia
- State of the art technology
Watch TV with noise-canceling headphones
Our existing patients love to watch their favorite tv shows like House Hunters on HGTV while having their teeth cleaned. Sports fans can stay up to date and know the score of their favorite team or player. Know if their winning or losing. And the kids, they LOVE to watch their favorite cartoons in stereo with our noise-canceling headphones. Other top favorites are our memory foam support pillows and heated blankets.
Pain-free, gentle anesthesia
We know most people are anxious about needles which is why we use the strongest topical anesthetic available to numb the area where needle anesthetic will be administered. As a result, patients oftentimes only feel a teeny-tiny pin like prick as anesthetic is administered nice and slow that helps the anesthetic to take effect quickly. Your comfort is our top-priority. Your dental provider will frequently ask you how you’re doing ensuring that you’re comfortable and answer any questions you may have.
State of the art technology
State of the art technology is standard of care, not optional (no extra charge) and is used to help diagnose, treat, and monitor changes in your oral health. Technology includes digital x rays (no more pokey cardboard film holders), digital impressions (no more gooey impression material), and high-definition (HD) cameras to take closeup photos of your teeth and tissues, and our sterilization and disinfection protocols meet and/or exceed guidelines set forth by the CDC, Centers for Disease Control.
