WE ARE CONVERGENT DENTISTRY
Creating Beautiful Smiles Since 1992
Practice description: Convergent Dentistry has evolved to serve patients who have more severe dental issues, generally due to neglect and/or fear by avoiding the dentist. They found themselves in need of correcting multiple dental problems that a general dentist practice wasn’t trained or equipped to manage in an efficient and effective manner.
Our Difference: By using advanced sedation, patients can get multiple problems corrected during one appointment, that if referred by a general dentist might take numerous visits to different specialists: 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).
Our Goal: Is to manage the journey back to full dental health and return the patient back to their general dentist to complete crown & bridge work and maintain their dental health with regular cleanings and exams.
