Dr. Essey and his team of skilled professionals work together to provide quality dental treatment solutions for children, teens and adults. We strive to provide personalized and thorough dental care to achieve comprehensive dental wellness. From common problems to gum disease, we provide an array of dental services to meet your dental needs, including:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to look, feel and function like your own natural teeth. Implants can restore the aesthetics of your smile, or act as an anchor for dentures.

Venus White Bleaching

It 's hard to imagine anything more appealing than a sparkling, white smile.  Yet out teeth rarely stay as white as we'd like them to without a little help.  Venus White offers affordable, superior at home whitening for a whiter smile in one week and it is available here at Dr. Essey's office.

You can trust Venus White to help you achieve and maintain a brighter, more radiant smile.  We have a high performance Venus White option that is just right for you.

Venus White Pro is the high performance whitening system specially formulated for simple at home use.  We will work with you to create custom fit trays and will also have touch up kits available.  Use night or day for a bright, radiant smile.

Venus White Ultra offers a quick, convenient and easy way to whiten in just 7 days.  The trays are pre-filled wit mint flavored gel.  These trays are disposable and made of a super thin material offering comfort and effective whitening in just 7 days!

There are lots of things you can do to make sure your whitening results last as long as possible, and this will vary from person to person.  First of all please maintain your usual good routine of brushing and flossing every day and be sure to keep up with your recare appointments in our office.  Avoid foods and beverages that cause stain, such as coffee, tea, red wine, tomato based foods.  Try drinking staining fluids thru a straw if possible or do a swish and swallow with water after having one of those drinks or food.

 

 

August is National Immunization Awareness Month!

 

National Immunization Awareness Month occurs every August and provides an opportunity to highlight the value of immunization across the lifespan.  The focus is on many groups , babies and pregnant women, children, preteens, and teens, young adults as well as adults!!

This theme is timely because the beginning of the school year is right around the corner.

Schools are a prime venue for transmitting vaccine preventable diseases, and school aged children can easily spread disease to their families and others whom they come in contact.  Vaccines are among the safest and most cost effective ways to  prevent disease, and most schools require children to be up to date on vaccinations before starting school in order to protect the health of all students.

Parents and caregivers should be educated about the benefits and risks of vaccinations and encouraged to check their child's immunization record and insure it is up to date.

The vaccines that are recommended for pre-teens and teens include the flu (influenza) vaccine, HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) , Meningococcal vaccine, and the T-Dap vaccine.

Let us not forget the adults!  The vaccinations recommended are the flu (influenza) vaccine, the pneumococcal (pneumonia) vaccine, meningococcal vaccine, and the shingles vaccine.

 

Please follow up with your primary care physician to be sure you and your loved ones are adequately protected!
