Thank you for visiting our website in your search for a dentist. Since seeing our first patient in 1986, we have taken great pride in the level of care we provide and our treatment of all patients as individuals. We understand that each person has specific needs and desires. We provide treatment ranging from the very basic to the very complex. Our patients range in age from under 2 to nearly 100. Our office is fully handicapped accessible, and we are capable of treating the special needs of physically, mentally and/or medically handicapped patients.
Our mission is to help our patients achieve and maintain dental and oral health and comfort, return patients to a proper state of function and to meet patients' esthetic demands, doing all in a friendly, caring, comfortable, and professional environment.
Elimination and prevention of dental and oral disease is our primary concern, and we place a strong emphasis not only on the treatment we provide but also on patient education to develop a partnership in care. We emphasize the fact that dental healh is undeniably and inextricably linked to general overall health and well being.
We also place a high priority on returning patients to a proper and comfortable state of oral function. This can involve simple maintenance, basic restorations, crowns or bridges, removable dentures or even replacement of single or multiple teeth with dental implants.
We take special pride in and truly enjoy the comprehensive cosmetic care we provide including simple bondings, direct veneers, crowns, bridges and esthetic periodontal (gum) procedures.
It is a known fact that visiting the dentist is not a favorite activity for many people. We make every effort to provide a relaxing and stress free environment starting with a friendly, caring staff, providing TVs and headphones in all operatories and offering nitrous oxide or oral sedation for even greater relaxation.
Dr. Mettens is extremely proud of his staff. The 6 staff members have over 125 years of combined experience in the dental and healthcare fields , 90 of which is in our office. Please feel free to browse our website, call the office or stop by to meet us. We look forward to serving you!
