Well I have to say that Dr. Kirby is a wonderful Dentist. She is very gentle when performing any procedure you may need. My fiance and I both go to her and never had her or her assistant talk down to us in any manner. Not only are they very professional but will work with you in regards to your needs, whether it is scheduling or payment. So if you had a bad experience maybe you should get a better attitude because you were probably the one who brought it on......just saying.Looking forward to years of Dr. Kirby and her assistant Hanna taking care of our teeth......

Dr. Stokes has been my dentist for more than 15 years. He is very gentle and patient with me and my children. My beautiful new smile is proof that he is an excellent dentist. I am glad I found him!

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
