We offer a wide range of services to meet the needs of your entire family.

Comprehensive Examination

The comprehensive examination is a procedure during which Drs. Bret Frye records information in order to provide you with a thorough diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment plan. This examination will include:

Oral Cancer Screening: If you are a tobacco or smokeless tobacco user, you are in primary danger of developing oral cancer. More than 8,000 deaths were attributed to oral cancer in the past year. We are committed to the prevention of oral cancer through the early identification or pre-cancerous conditions, and provide oral cancer screenings at each preventive care appointment.

Periodontal Examination: Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States. Drs Bret Frye will examine your gum tissues to insure that gum disease is detected in its early stages. Because bone loss is a significant consideration to determining the outcome of all dental treatment, we take the health of your gum and bone tissues very seriously.

Occlusion Examination: The forces of your bite can sometimes affect the positioning of your jaw and teeth. Drs. Bret  Frye examines your teeth and restorations for evidence of uneven biting forces. He will also test for signs of bruxing, a constant or intermittent clenching or grinding of the teeth, which may lead to limited jaw function, pain in the neck, shoulders and upper back, and pain and pressure in the face and ears. We can provide conservative therapies that can help to eliminate this painful and frustrating problem.

Caries Examination: During this examination, Drs. Bret Frye locates areas of decay on chewing surfaces and between the teeth, as well as around existing restorations. He uses a clinical exam, digital x-ray (radiographic) findings, and the use of the Diagnodent (a diagnostic laser) to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your oral needs.

Advanced Technology

We are constantly striving to provide our patients with the finest dental care available. Our investment in advanced technology means a long-term investment in your future, because state-of-the-art technology invites informed decision making and enables patients to make wise choices concerning their oral health. Drs. Bret Frye offers the latest dental technology for your benefit.

Intra-Oral Camera: This camera allows us to quickly and easily photograph the oral cavity. The photographic image can be projected onto a color monitor. Because this magnification allows you to see your mouth more clearly, you are better able to participate in your treatment.

X-rays: X-rays assist in the detection of cavities between the teeth that may not he visible in the mouth. Cavities that are just beginning can also be detected earlier on an x-ray so that your treatment becomes less invasive and costly. We use the latest digital technology available, reducing radiation exposure to our patients by 60%.

Panorex: The digital 3-D Panorex provides Drs. Bret  Frye with a panoramic view of the oral cavity and provides information at a glance about existing fillings supporting bone, sources of infection, tumors, cysts, and decay.

Diagnodent: The Diagnodent is a new high tech laser system. It utilizes laser light defined wavelength to help detect and quantify demineralized tooth substances (decay) without x-ray exposure. Our office uses this new technology that detects hidden decay so that it may be eliminated in its early stages.

Computers: Our computer system is designed to efficiently manage the most complex information in the dental industry. Our system handles treatment and payment options. We make sure our computer system takes care of the technicalities so that you are provided with the most up-to-date information available.

Specialists: We are fortunate to be associated with several outstanding specialists in the fields of endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, and oral surgery. We will offer our patients their advanced knowledge and expertise as the need arises.
