Dr. Porter is a wonderful dentist. I have been going to him for the last 8 years. Dr. Porter and his staff have always explained all procedures or courses of treatment, so I know what needs to be done. He has a machine which makes crowns right in the office so you don't have to come back! I also like that they start at 7:00 am and I have come many times before work. The staff is always very friendly.

General Dentistry Procedures

Cleanings and Exams

Tartar, tooth decay, and other dental issues can easily develop unnoticed even for those with the best oral hygiene practices. Regular dental cleanings and exams eliminate tartar and allow your dentist to catch any issues that may surface in the earliest stages, when they are easiest and most affordable to treat. This benefits your overall health, as the bacteria in plaque and tarter can cause gum disease, which has been linked to heart disease and other serious health conditions. Dental sealants can be applied to prevent decay, and fluoride treatments can help protect teeth against acid and bacteria. This is also a good time to discuss any oral issues or cosmetic dentistry questions you may have with Dr. Porter.

Oral Cancer Screening

Identifying any signs of oral cancer early is essential to your well-being. It is recommended that patients are screened annually for oral cancer. Unlike most other oral health issues, cancer symptoms may not be noticeable until the disease has progressed. Catching oral cancer early can often prevent the cancer from spreading. Dr. Porter can conduct a visual oral cancer screening at your next visit to ensure your health is in good standing.

Cutting-Edge  Technology

To provide the finest dental care to his patients, Dr. Porter uses the highest-quality materials and the latest technology. Breakthroughs in modern dentistry such as dental implants offer more durable, natural-looking results than ever before. Other tools, like diode lasers, improve your overall health while greatly reducing treatment and recovery times.
