What services does a general dentist provide?
Dr. Kevin Hogan and our staff provide routine preventative care such as periodic exams, dental cleanings, periodontal cleanings, and diagnostic x-rays. We also provide a wide range of restorative and cosmetic treatments like fillings, dental crowns, bridges, dental implants, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening. Fortunately, Dr. Hogan is also trained and qualified to provide specialty services that include orthodontics, extractions, dentures, and laser gum surgery.
I hate the dental drill. Can Dr. Hogan use something else?
If you fear the dental drill, you are not alone. Dr. Hogan takes time to work with you to overcome your dental fears. You will be put at ease as soon as you enter our office. The good news is that we use air abrasion in our practice. Air abrasion utilizes a tiny stream of aluminum oxide particles to remove tooth decay and is often more comfortable than a traditional drill.
Is there anything that will help with my dental anxiety?
Dental fear is very common. To help, we provide oral conscious sedation to relax you for your procedure and ensure you get the proper treatment you need.

Does Your Office Use Lasers?
Yes. There are many kinds of lasers used in today’s dentistry and we use several of them. We have a DIAGNOdent laser that detects cavities. We can scan each of your teeth for decay instead of only having to use an explorer. We also use a soft tissue laser for several gum treatments including gum grafts, crown lengthening, and to treat gum disease. When using a laser, we do not need to use stitches to close incisions and bleeding is minimal – making for far less invasive procedures.
