In the heart of Allen, TX serving families across north Texas, with over 65 years of combined experience.
Our practice offers comprehensive oral healthcare so that residents of our area can achieve and maintain good oral health. Keeping routine appointments for checkups and cleanings are essential to detecting oral disease and potential problems as early as possible. When problems do arise, restorations and tooth extractions can eliminate aggressive conditions that can threaten the vitality of the oral health system.
Checkups and Cleanings
An oral health checkup is more thorough than many people think. During checkups, our dentists will look for signs and symptoms of more than gum disease and dental caries. Our team will perform oral cancer screenings and evaluate the health of the jaws and glands in the neck.
Like checkups, having routine cleanings are important. A dental cleaning is about more than just polishing teeth to an impeccable shine. Our dental hygienists use handheld instruments to remove substances like plaque and tartar that accumulate along the gums and in between teeth. Cleanings help prevent the development of gum disease since plaque and tartar irritate the gums and contribute to gum recession.
When areas of decay are detected, restorations are needed to strengthen teeth. Restorations like fillings, onlays, and crowns will prevent a cavity from destroying the deepest portions of a tooth while also protecting its external structure. When teeth are permanently damaged, they cannot repair themselves, thus requiring the need for professional treatment.
Extractions are sometimes a necessity – especially as a preventive measure when wisdom teeth begin to emerge. Wisdom teeth can contribute to a number of oral health problems including tooth misalignment, TMJ disorder, cavities, and gum disease. Teeth that become broken or diseased beyond repair also require removal as they can develop painful and aggressive infections called abscesses. When removing diseased teeth or wisdom teeth, we take all strides necessary to ensure that our guests are comfortable.
If you have broken a tooth or have a toothache, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible. We provide treatment for dental emergencies. If you have an emergency, please call our office as soon as you can so that we can make room for you in our schedule.

VIDEO: The importance of regular checkups
Dental checkups are more thorough than they may seem. In addition to evaluating the health of the teeth and gums, we monitor the vitality of the entire oral cavity. A dental checkup includes looking at the health of jawbones as well as performing an oral cancer screening.
From removing baby teeth that haven’t fallen out quick enough for emerging adult teeth or taking out diseased teeth, a tooth extraction is only recommended when it is necessary for protecting the health of the oral cavity. Another common reason extractions are necessary is for removing wisdom teeth. A third set of molars, wisdom teeth are not necessary for healthy oral function and typically do not have enough room to emerge properly through the gums. Without room to emerge, wisdom teeth become stuck in the gums and jaw – therefore, leaving patients vulnerable to developing gum disease, dental caries, and abscesses.
If you have a dental emergency, we strongly encourage you to call our practice as soon as possible so we can make room in our schedule to provide the treatment you need. In some instances, our staff can provide information when you call to alleviate discomfort or help you save a broken tooth until you can make it to our office. Be sure to store our number in your mobile phone and keep our business cards in your vehicle, purse, or wallet so that you can reach us even when you are away from home.
