Long before I ever developed any signs of fear or started having problems with dentists, I went out of my way to find the best dentist possible for my children. One of my kids had some early problems with cavities, and I was determined that amalgam was not ever used. Also, I wanted to make sure that the dentist who treated these problems would be sensitive and caring so that my children did not develop any fear or anxiety from discomfort or pain. You would be surprised how difficult it was to find a good dentist a decade ago (maybe not?) who met these requirements and used composite fillings. Almost all the reputable, highly referred dentists believed in amalgam and would try to convince you it was all right. When I first visited Dr. Sachdev, it was because I had some serious personal challenges, but I quickly discovered he was the best all round dentist I had ever met—and didn’t push amalgam. He is sensitive to individual needs, totally understands pain-free dentistry without sedation, and is a true artist with cosmetic dentistry. Not to mention, he is a highly educated gentleman who always treats everyone with kindness, consideration and the highest level of professionalism while being down-to-earth, very likeable and can carry on a conversation with anyone about anything.

My three year old loves going to the dentist now. Dr. Crisp and the staff at this office are an excellent choice if you are looking for a pediatric dentist. At our last visit we saw Laura & Dr. Crisp. They both made me and my daughter welcome and comfortable. My daughter said she was a little nervous when we went in but it quickly faded. They have a friendly reception staff and clean waiting room. You receive a dental care kit when you leave and they have a toy bucket kids can pick toys from to take home. It may sound simple but it helps encourage good behavior. These few things are why we will keep going back and recommend this office to all. Two days after our visit my daughter got a thank you card in the mail from Laura. You can't beat the individual attention they give to all their patients.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
