As someone who is terrified of dentists, it’s really hard to have a five-star experience. But everyone here was so friendly and explained everything, it was a really great experience.
I went in to Clay Gunnell family dentistry to have a tooth looked at for sensitivity. Clay said the tooth was cracked and needed a crown. The crown came and Clay went to put it on and did not like the fit. So he had the crown redone. He approved of it the 2nd time and I was very happy. I greatly appreciate Clay's attention to detail and his warm bedside manner. Clay and his staff make seeing the dentist an enjoyable experience. I'm grateful to him and his wonderful team because they protect my overall health and wellbeing. I highly recommend Gunnell family Dentistry!!😁 Sincerely Gary Hawkins
family dentistryOur experts have the experience, training, and skills needed to address dental concerns for patients of all ages.
We provide preventative dental care services with expert dental cleanings. Our experts remove dental plaque and prevent cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease with annual dental cleanings.
A tooth can lose its normal shape and size for a variety of reasons. A crown covers your tooth to help restore its original shape and size. Crowns can also be used to make teeth stronger and look better.
When infection damages the pulp of the tooth your dentist or an endodontist may have to perform root canal therapy to save your tooth. Our staff is specially trained to work with patients to manage pain, anxiety, and fear, and understand that doing so is an important part of the root canal therapy process. We want our patients to get back to being pain-free and healthy as quickly as possible.
Gunnell Family Dental provides kids dentistry services. We strive to provide the best services to optimize your child’s oral health needs. Our team understands how stressful it can be for children to visit the dentist, and we work with kids to help them feel comfortable when receiving dental treatment.
Dental fillings are used to fill cavities and repair cracked or broken teeth. Fillings can be done with gold, porcelain, or silver amalgam, but is most commonly done with materials called composite resin fillings that are designed to match the color of your teeth.
Bridges can solve the issue of missing teeth. Similar to dentures, bridges replace gaps in your smile with artificial teeth. Bridges can be made from a variety of materials including porcelain, gold, and alloys.
X-Rays are used to examine the inside of your teeth. We are hoping to be able to catch any problems that we can’t see with the naked eye! Using radiology, we are able to see which teeth are developing cavities. We may also see some teeth or gum areas that may require some extra work.
