After several visits including some fillings, I can say this is the best dental practice I've ever experienced. The team is warm, knowledgeable and cutting-edge. I like the people who work here, their thoroughness and humanity. Highly recommend!!”

Replace Missing Teeth

While more traditional tooth replacement options such as dental crowns, bridges, dentures, and partials may be sufficient for most – dental implant tooth replacements provide a different, and often higher, standard of care. Instead of only replacing the visible parts of teeth, dental implants restore the entire missing or infected tooth structure – including both the roots and crown. Best of all, our team of dentists provide both the placement and restoration phases of treatment in our dental office – saving you time, money and the hassle of being referred to another dental office. IV sedation is also available.

Loud snoring – gasping for air while asleep – high blood pressure – inability to focus for long periods of time – brain fog – obesity…and more. Sleep apnea patients put themselves at in incredible risk for severe health issues, both immediately and long-term, but they often do not realize treatment is easy, convenient, and affordable.

A Whole-Body Approach To Great Dentistry

The link between your oral health and overall health, known as the Oral-Systemic Connection, is very real. Leading research indicates inflammation caused by poor oral hygiene can negatively affect nearly every cell in your body and correlate with several diseases, conditions, and overall poor health. Our Ellensburg dental office is built on a philosophy that embraces overall health, and our dentists take the time to help you understand how you’re feeling, what your body is telling you, and how to develop a plan to improve not just your teeth, but overall wellbeing. Immune-friendly procedures such as ozone therapy are also available to fight bacteria without drills or scalpels.
