I am happy to announce the addition of Dr. Rachel Swart to our practice. She shares the same philosophy of great patient care and her extensive experience and training brings about additional services to our practice and allows us to better care for our patients. Dr. Swart is experienced in tooth extractions (including wisdom teeth extractions), endodontics (including biocompatible endodontics), implant placement and Invisalign. Please call our practice to arrange an appointment to meet this dynamic individual.
We are happy to announce that Dr. Shireman has achieved her SMART certification!

In addition to removing amalgams safely, we safely dispose of the mercury-contaminated water and particulate and keep it out of the public water supply.

What shocks patients some of the time is suggestions to try to remineralize early carious lesions (ie reversing cavities). Healing cavities naturally and nonsurgically is the goal of minimally invasive dentistry. In the early stages of caries progression, the damage is to the tough outside tissue of the tooth (enamel).
