My daughter is 18months old and today was her first dental appointment. We were seen within five minutes of walking through the door. The waiting room area was neat, clean, and organized. Dr. DeCoursey was extremely friendly and exhibited the kind of bedside manner any patient would want. I never felt rushed, and was encouraged to ask as many questions as I wanted. I was given thoughtful and educated answers. Dr. DeCoursey was very patient when it came to examining my rambunctious toddler, and he made every effort to make her experience as comfortable and as pleasant as he could. Highly recommend!

Absolutely wonderful experience, the staff was very informative about what dental work needed to be fixed and my procedure was done in a very professional and timely manner. I will continue to come here if the service and work is done as well as it was my first visit, which I have no doubt it will!

Honestly, one of the most pleasant experiences I've had while getting my teeth cleaned. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I appreciated Dr. DeCoursey's explanation of my plan of care and couldn't be more pleased with the service. A+

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
