Improving Your Dental Experience


Hands on dental education!


The newest materials and techniques improve service and results

   Dr. Julie  Gillis and her team attend over 100 hours of continuing education each year in order to provide our patients with the newest, tested, and proven materials and techniques.  The crowns, veneers, and fillings we do today have improved over those we did only 5 years ago.  Some of the changes are small and incremental while others change the level of care significantly such as periodontal care with lasers.

   This past spring, Dr. Gillis attended a 2½ day program with Dr. Pete Dawson, one of the greatest educators in Dentistry, at the Dawson Academy in Florida.  The program entitled “Advance Problem Solving” is offered to those dentists who have completed the entire Dawson program and involved a review of the latest techniques and treatment options for patients with complex dental problems.

   Dr. Gillis also attended the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s 28th Annual Scientific Session in Washington D.C.  Roughly 2,000 dentists, lab technicians, hygienists, and dental team members were involved with 48 hands-on workshops, 85 lectures, and 90 speakers to help them refine their skills, learn the latest techniques, and share ideas.

Headphones, chapstick, extra pillows and blankets are just some of the comforts we offer our patients to help make their dental visits as comfortable as possible.

   This ongoing training allows us to provide you with longer lasting, better looking restorations in less time with decreased sensitivity and pain – the best quality and service available today!
