I was pleased with the staff and how things were handled for this first visit. But more important, I was pleased with my hygienist, Amanda. She was good at keeping your mind off the nerve-wracking work of having your teeth cleaned. She did a good job without hurting me a bit. Dr. Brockman was also very pleasant and professional. My husband saw him a few weeks ago for a painful tooth, and we appreciated his conservative approach. I feel really good about this dental practice.

Very friendly staff. Dr. Scallions explained the treatment I needed in a way that I could understand. In the past when I needed dental work done the dentist would tell me what was needed and not explain why. I will absolutely recommend this office to friends and family. Five stars!

Dr. Buchanan is a wonderful dentist and cares for your needs. He genuinely tries to fix the problem you are there for and if he can't he will refer you to another dentist that does that kind of work. Will definitely return for other visits.

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
