Preventative Dentistry
At a routine dental appointment, a registered dental hygienist will clean your teeth, and screen you for gum diseases, such as gingivitis; and you’ll also have a dental exam with one of our dentists.

General Dentistry
We treat patients in need of a filling, porcelain crown, bridge, root canal, or cosmetic denture.

Cosmetic Dentistry
Our cosmetic dentistry procedures include teeth whitening, veneers, and bonding.

Dental Implants
Our dental implant procedures include implant crowns, implant bridges, and the all-on-four teeth in a day implant procedure. Dr. Leonard Gordon created the Gordon Protocol for the all-on-four dental implant procedure and lectures nationally on the subject.

Other services
Patients also seek us out for a second opinion or if they have TMJ.

We are able to provide an expert and impartial diagnosis, because of our unique vantage point: (1) Dr. Leonard Gordon and Dr. David Gordon have nearly 50 years of combined dental experience, so they’ve likely seen a case—or several—like yours before. (2) Because the Doctors Gordon do not participate with insurance, we are not under the same pressure to produce a certain amount of work, and therefore only recommend necessary treatments.

For older teens, Dentistry IQ has a list of cool tools they can use to brush and floss their teeth and braces. If your teen still seems uninterested in brushing their teeth, schedule an appointment for a dental cleaning.
