We care for your family like our own.

We get to know our patients on a personal level so we can help them establish and reach their dental goals. We want to celebrate your successes and encourage you to live a healthy life.

Dental Philosophy

Personal Relationships
We’re best known for the way we treat our patients — and that’s as if you’re family! We take the time to get to know you personally so we can deliver the highest quality of care for your individual needs. If you ever have questions or concerns, we listen carefully. We seek to understand your goals, values, obstacles, and commitment to your oral health. We truly care.

Dental Philosophy

Welcoming Environment
Everyone is welcome here. No matter your oral health history or teeth problems, we want you to come see us! We care about helping you improve from where you are at now more than we care about how you’ve taken care of your teeth in the past. Our team will welcome you with happy smiles and friendly attitudes. We are judgement-free and look forward to helping you understand your smile!

Dental Philosophy

Exceptional Patient Experience
We take customer service to the next level by paying attention to the ease and comfort of your visit. We offer many patient conveniences — such as online scheduling, new patient gifts, after-hours courtesy calls, warm scented towels, and Netflix streaming — to ensure each visit is as smooth and relaxing as possible. These amenities combined with our patient-focused approach to dental care are all aimed at exciting you about taking care of your smile and changing your perception of dentistry into something to look forward to!

Dental Philosophy

Comprehensive Services
At Today’s Dental, we don’t miss a detail in your health or treatments. With thorough exams, customized preventative treatments and a wide variety of services in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry, we are able to provide comprehensive care under one roof. We are also extremely skilled and qualified in treating obstructive sleep apnea, replacing missing teeth and improving smiles through cosmetic smile enhancement. Whatever your need, we are happy to help!

Dental Philosophy

Advanced Technology
We stay up to date on the most cutting-edge dental techniques and technologies to help us better serve you. Same-day crowns, digital impressions & x-rays, 3D printing, intraoral scanning and paperless charting include a few of the many technologies we utilize to ensure a safe, accurate, comfortable and convenient experience for you.

Dental Philosophy

Patient Education
Taking proper care of your smile goes beyond routine brushing, flossing and dental visits. It’s important to understand how your diet, nutrition, sleep patterns and whole-body health play a role in the health of your mouth and teeth. Our office is passionate about providing thorough patient education at every visit and will teach you the “whys” behind your oral health condition, treatment options and recommended at-home prevention plan. Doing so will aid us in putting you on the path to a lifetime of healthy smiles!

Meet Our Team

Jaimie - Dental Hygienist

Jaimie

Dental Hygienist

I have been a part of the dental field for 18 years and have been a dental hygienist for 14 years. I have spent 10 of those years with the Today’s Dental team. The most gratifying part of my job is taking a patient who is fearful or had a previous unfavorable dental visit and giving them a positive and comfortable dental experience. When I am not at work, my 6-year-old son keeps me very busy. We love spending time with family and going to the beach.

Brandy - Dental Hygienist

Brandy

Dental Hygienist

I graduated from Dental Hygiene school in May 2007 and started at Today's Dental shortly after that in November 2007. I love being a dental hygienist because I am able to help people every day have a clean and healthy mouth that they want to show off. My favorite thing about Today’s Dental is the professionalism and efficiency with which we operate. We still find time to have fun, but we always make sure our patients are priority. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and of course, my two dogs.
