Every appointment, I am pleasantly surprised at how comfortable I feel when leaving. I have had minor to major dental work done and have always been pleased. Dr. Griffin and my hygienist Cheryl are so gentle and thorough that I can't recommend them enough.

Gwen Greenwalt

Both Dr. Griffin and his staff make my visit to the dentist comfortable! I had my teeth cleaned today & I was so pleased to realize how gentle and yet thorough this was! Dr. Griffin then explained what work needed to be done, showed me several pictures taken, and we discussed my financial options. I felt a part of that process and that matters to me. Wonderful care today. And I love that we could laugh together, too. Bravissimo!

This practice is anything but routine. From the time you walk in the door you are treated like an old friend. Everyone is friendly and they call you by your name like you have been coming in for years. Dr. Griffin is extremely professional and asks questions about what you need and listens carefully to everything you say. This practice is the best I've used in years. Give them a try and you will be pleasantly surprised!

Kelly Griffin

My daughter and I had a cleaning today at Griffin Dental. Our hygienist Cheryl was excellent—thorough, friendly, and so kind! It was my (almost 3 yr old) daughter’s very first cleaning and she LOVED it! We felt so welcome the minute we walked in, not only by the receptionist, Renata, but also by the other patients who seemed so happy to be there, too! Dr. Griffin is so fun to be around, and we can tell he genuinely cares about us as people in addition to our teeth. That means a lot to me and made a positive impact on my daughter. I highly recommend Dr. Griffin and his team!

Charla Lutzen

I had my first cleaning at this office. Cheryl was very thorough to make sure she went through each tooth and gum to clean it. She explained everything she was doing as she was doing it and made sure I was comfortable. She was wonderful! Dr. Griffin came and checked my teeth out after and explained to me things that my previous dentist didn’t. They are a great practice and I would highly recommend them!

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile can increase self-confidence and overall life satisfaction. Cosmetic dentistry can encompass things such as tooth-colored fillings, dental implants, or crowns. We have many options, so please call us for a free cosmetic consultation.

One Visit Crowns

One Visit Crowns

CEREC® technology allows our practice to create tooth-colored porcelain restorations for healthy, beautiful smiles in a single appointment.

Crowns should be placed before the tooth is so decayed that it may fracture. This can often help prevent the expense of root canal therapy in the future. If a tooth is too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative.

Implant Restoration

Implant Restoration

Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth, improving chewing ability, eliminating bridges, and replacing dentures.

Cosmetic Dentures
Cosmetic Dentures

A well-made denture is not only comfortable and functions properly; it also allows the wearer to smile with confidence, knowing that their smile is no different than it would be with natural teeth. Creating a cosmetic denture is really an art in the hands of a skilled dentist like Dr. Griffin.

Invisalign® Orthodontics

These “invisible” aligners are the latest in orthodontic technology for adults and teens.

Digital Practice

Our use of digital x-ray technology reduces your radiation exposure and eliminates the use of chemicals. It’s better for you and the environment.

Root Canals

Root canal therapy is an excellent way to save a tooth that would otherwise die and need to be removed. All teeth that have had root canal therapy must be protected with a crown. This is because teeth that have had the pulp removed are more susceptible to fracture.

TMJ Treatment

If you suffer from headaches or pain, clicking or popping while chewing, there may be problems with your temporomandibular joint (or TMJ). Call us today to schedule a free TMJ treatment consultation.

Relax With Nitrous

Nitrous Oxide is an excellent treatment for patients with extensive dental needs, or who are concerned about anxiety, difficulty getting numb, or sensitive teeth.
