LaRue Family Dental
If you are even thinking about changing dentists give Dr. Jason LaRue a call @ 412-422-5150. He has great office hours and a staff that is wonderful. Everyone is friendly and does their best to make you feel comfortable.Please allow me to share my experience with Dr. LaRue. I am in the process of getting my permanent dentures. Anyone who has gone threw this process - or if you know someone who has - you are aware of it being a very labor intensive process. I switched to him because I was not happy with the dentist I had previously been using. I can not say enough good things about Dr. LaRue and his staff. They have taken the time to make me feel very comfortable. He explains everything he is going to do. He asks if you have any questions. He WANTS you to ask questions. He wants to know what your concerns are. He actually listens to what you are saying. AND he is very concerned that you get the best fit that you can achieve. His accepts multiple insurances. I am extremely happy with what my new dentures look like. I would highly recommend Dr. LaRue to anyone.

Aspen Dental
When I first went into the office, I had not been to a dentist for several years. Everyone was exceptionally friendly, made me feel at ease, and that I had NOT done anything wrong just because I could not get to a dentist to take care of my teeth. I needed extensive work done and had to make numerous appts. to receive all the care that I needed. The staff were all caring and made sure to explain every procedure I had done, and some of them were even there to hold my hand when I was VERY nervous. The staff at this office helped me feel comfortable with everything from x-rays to exams to financial help. I now have a smile to be proud of, and I have not had that in years. Thank you to each and every one of you!!!!! You made me feel like family, and I am not embarrassed to talk to or smile in front of other people now.

Urgent Denture Repair and Cleaning
I was in a denture emergency! My upper plate broke in half and I have a music gig to play/sing in three days. I found these folks and next day shipped the broken set to them on Wednesday and got them back on Friday morning! I also had them make me a duplicate upper. Both the repair and the duplicate set are fantastic. In a panic early Friday I emailed them to see if I could expect them and got a reply almost immediately. I'm rating both their customer service and their work with my 5 stars and would absolutely recommend them to anyone and will surely use them in the future for any denture needs. GREAT vendor.

I have three children and have had a great experience. The dental hygienist are all very kind. The front receptionist is very sweet. They are very quick to schedule. They have some evening appointments which is nice. If you have an emergency, they will get you in quickly. Dr. LeDonne is "old school," but very knowledgable. He will answer any questions you have. As a health care professional myself, sometimes you have to look past the slight gruff exterior at times and pick the person that is the best at what they do.

Chips Dental Associates LLC
I've been visiting Chips Dental Associates LLC for almost five years. In that time, Dr. Chips had become more than my dentist, he is a friend. I look forward to my visits in his office. That's right, I like going to the dentist! Recently I missed an appointment due to illness. Dr. Chips called me to ask how I was doing, and to make sure I wasn't having any issues that needed his attention before my new appointment. Dr. Chips is not just an exemplary dentist. He is a model of how all of us should treat one another every day.

I took my three year old daughter to Dr. LeDonne for her first dental visit. We had a great experience. The girls were so kind. My daughter was very nervous but the assistant explained step by step to my daughter what they were going to do. It put her at ease. Dr. LeDonne plesantly answered all of my concerns. At the end of her visit my daughter was able to get a prize and walked out with a much happier attitude than coming in. We will be going back to this office!

Nova Dental Associates
I moved from the Columbus, Ohio area and have been looking for a dentist to take my children. I tried several pediatric dentists but my daughter dreaded going. I tried Nova dental after a recommendation from a friend and Dr. Ryan was the Best and my daughter Sara had a very pleasurable experience and is looking forward to going back!!!Highly recommend taking your children to him and he is now my new dentist as well
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
