About Big Wide Smiles

As a family dental practice, our number one goal is to improve on a patient’s oral health and appearance. We are absolutely committed to providing individuals and their families with a lifetime of exceptional dental care by understanding their needs, and treating each with the utmost care, comfort, and respect. All staff members at BWS are committed to these principles for we believe that when one feels good about themselves, they have a higher self-esteem and outlook on life.

At BWS we have a thorough understanding of dentistry for people of all ages. We offer not only general services like tooth extractions, crowns, fillings, and
cleanings to name a few, but also pediatric and cosmetic dentistry. Our office is equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art technology and equipment such as digital X-rays which limits radiation exposure, soft tissue laser for therapy and rotary endodontic equipment.

All dental rooms at Big Wide Smiles have flat screen TVs for your comfort. We encourage patients and prospects alike to ask questions, check us out, or simply stop by and visit.
