IMG 5502 About the Practice

Our 3D CT Imaging system provides 3D x-rays and a 360º view of a person’s jaw and head area.

A keynote of our practice is the use of high technology. Lasers, low-radiation digital 3D x-rays and ultrasonic scalers are some of the tools we use to make our dentistry efficient, accurate, high quality and to considerably reduce pain and increase comfort.

Included in our team are Dr. Vahik Meserkhani, who is a prosthodontist—a specialist in the replacement of missing teeth and the restoration of natural teeth; Dr. Joel Henriod, a periodontist—a specialist who takes care of gum disease and dental implant placement; and Dr. Nathan Christensen, a general and cosmetic dentist.

Comprehensive Approach

We are not just comprehensive in the variety of dental services we offer, we are also comprehensive in our approach to your oral health, aesthetics and functionality as well as how your dental health affects your overall health.

Many adults have had their dentistry done on an “as needed” basis. A crown here, a filling there, and another crown two or three years later. This usually means that the mouth is a “hodge podge” of different work and different materials done over time without any continuity or overall thought of bringing the mouth to an ideal or optimal condition, either functionally or cosmetically. With wear and other issues we face today, sometimes there is a better way to go and a better strategy to make teeth last a lifetime.

The 3D images we take give the doctor an in-depth look at the condition of your teeth and gums.

In alignment with our comprehensive approach, our “forward thinking/cutting edge” dentists strive to get the patient’s mouths to an ideal state of health more quickly. It is always easier and often a less expensive approach to maintain health than to do patch and repair work. The advantages of comprehensive care are remarkable in terms of stability and longevity.

Our doctors and their team are well trained and have used this comprehensive approach to our patients delight and benefit over recent years. During your initial comprehensive examination, it would be our pleasure to discuss which approach would work best for you.
