WE ARE CONVERGENT DENTISTRY
Creating Beautiful Smiles Since 1992
Practice description: Convergent Dentistry has evolved to serve patients with severe dental issues. Complex needs can sometimes be attributed to neglect and/or fear of the dentist. Many of our patients find themselves in need of correcting multiple dental problems at once. General dentists aren't always equipped to manage multiple issues efficiently and effectively.
Our Difference: With advanced sedation, patients can have multiple problems solved in one appointment. Referrals from a general dentist can take numerous specialist visits. Imagine having to see various practitioners: Endodontist (root canal(s) to save the tooth), Oral Surgeon (tooth removal), Periodontist (gum disease and reverse bone loss), Prosthodontist (dentures, partials and implant to restore appearance and health). We do it all in one place. Check out our blog post from April 2020: Convergent Dentistry is a resource center to maximizing oral health and minimizing risks.
Our Goal: We restore patients to full dental health. Referral patients are treated and returned back to their general dentist. General dentists can then complete crown & bridge work and maintenance. Maintenance, such as regular cleanings and exams.
