I don’t have tooth pain. Why should I visit a dentist?
Many conditions such as gum disease have little to no symptoms early on, when they’re easiest to treat. It’s important to get in a routine of visiting us for professional dental care, as we’re trained to spot even subtle problems. These problems can then be resolved by deep cleaning teeth or nonsurgical periodontal treatment before they cause painful complications that may require time-consuming, costly, and invasive restorative procedures.
I'm embarrassed by the look of my smile. What can I do?
We’re pleased to have many options to improve the appearance of your teeth and gums. Our team offers several teeth whitening system alternatives, including Zoom! in-office bleaching, custom take-home trays, and strips that actually work! If you have very deep or stubborn discoloration, chips, gaps, and other concerns, cosmetic veneers or teeth bonding may be recommended. Sensitive teeth are no match for today’s minimal-prep veneers, as well as products to help manage or prevent bleaching-related sensitivity.
When should children visit the dentist?
Call us to schedule a pediatric appointment if your child is at least a year old or has at least one tooth. It may seem strange to bring an infant with no teeth or a single tooth to the dentist; however, gums must be cleaned well to assure teeth develop in a healthy manner. Those baby teeth help to guide adult teeth into proper position. So, it’s important they aren’t lost to early childhood decay. We can show you techniques to easily and effectively clean little mouths.
Children’s dental care can be fun! Every child gets a toy after the visit. They look forward to visiting the dentist – no fear here.
We’re also pleased to offer:
- Convenient scheduling – Early morning, evening hours, after-hours and emergency care
- Comprehensive services – Range of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic treatments; plus, relationships with the region’s top specialists for complex procedures
- Budget-friendly – Flexible payment with medical financing

I have been bouncing around to dentists' offices for the past four years trying to find one that (1) doesn't hurt my face and mouth and (2) doesn't gross me out. My most recent dentist prior to Dr. Aurelia reeked of smoke and insisted on not wearing gloves when he fit my bite guard because otherwise it wouldn't fit properly. After that disgusting experience, I was out of there and dentist-less once again. I came across some Google reviews for Dr. Auerlia and thought I'd give his office a try. At the very least, it couldn't be worse than the last guy, right?
Even though Dr. Aurelia is out of network for my insurance, his office is well worth the extra out of pocket cost. His office got me in for an initial consult almost immediately because I had some pain concerns. They identified the issues right away and helped me get into a specialist for (another) root canal (on the same tooth - the horror!) the next day. I needed a filling in between my two front teeth and he was able to do the filling without novocain and I didn't feel a thing. I have my first cleaning next week so I will find out then how efficient they are with that (it took 90 solid minutes of my mouth being agape at my last dentist which is way too long), which is my last area of general wonderment about the quality of services provided. I can't imagine I'll need to find a new dentist anytime soon. If you are looking for an office full of helpful and friendly people and want high-quality, timely, and cost-conscious (i.e., won't do unnecessary work to get more monies) dental care, I highly recommend checking out Dr. Aurelia's office.
