Dr. Westerman offers a full array of dental services to help you achieve and maintain healthy teeth and an attractive smile.  You can read more on this page about specific services.

We value the comfort of our patients.  Nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) is available, and can be helpful for apprehensive patients and younger children.  We can utilize “drill-less dentistry” for fillings in many instances. Our Waterlase hard and soft tissue laser can accomplish decay removal without local anesthetic (Novocain), with little or no feeling, under many circumstances. We also use microabrasion for small cavities; this uses a finely focused spray of powder instead of the laser.

Prevention of dental problems is very important to us.  We utilize digital x-rays in our practice, which not only reduce radiation exposure to our patients by over 50% relative to traditional film x-rays, but offer superior images for both dentist and patient to see instantly.

Dr. Westerman performs many specialty procedures here, so you often don’t need to travel to another office.  In addition, we do have a wonderful network of talented specialists to whom we refer our patients when needed.

Regular dental visits are essential to make sure oral health problems — from tooth decay to oral cancer — are detected and treated in a timely manner. At our office, your oral health is our paramount concern. We want to make sure your teeth stay healthy, function well and look great! From regular cleanings and exams to advanced restorative treatments, all of your routine dental needs can be met right here.
