Thankfully, advances in dentistry have decreased the amount of phobic patients. For those instances in which fear still acts as a barrier to treatment, we offer several means of accommodating the fearful dental patient.

Anxiety Reduction Oral/ Tablet
This option has several applications, including but not limited to
Making longer appointments more tolerable
Improving the safety of dental treatment on patients with health problems

Single visit dentistry
Thanks to advanced technology, we can now complete procedures that would otherwise require multiple appointments, in a single visit. These procedures include crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, implant restorations, and bridges. As an added bonus to these single visit crowns, the precision, fit, and appearance of these restorations is second to none.
Medically Complex Patients
We have added training and experience in managing patients with complex health problems.
Patients with Head and Neck Cancer
Having a dentist that understands the effects of cancer treatment on the oral cavity is imperative. Dr. Couch ensures that he has a complete understanding of your cancer and proposed treatment by communicating with your oncologists and radiation oncologists prior to any treatment. The personalized treatment plan that you will receive varies greatly on a case-by-case basis, but all treatment plans have the common goal of decreasing the likelihood of complications after your cancer therapy has concluded.
Dr. Couch has additional training in the placement of dental implants. This helps make dental implants available to a wider array of patients. Patients have the added convenience of not having to see different doctors, at different offices, with different financial policies to replace a tooth! We hope to make implant dentistry attainable for all of our patients. We feel confident that replacing a tooth in our office is more reasonable than you thought.
