Health-Based Dental Surgery

Health-based Extractions with Ozone

Specializing in health-based surgery, we use ozone to disinfect and clean your mouth and bone after
any surgery.

Healing IV therapies

After surgery, the body needs a lot of energy and help to heal. Our nutritional IV therapies help provide the body with these healing needs.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) contains stem cells and growth factors found within your own blood. It is added to areas of surgery to help the body heal the natural way. We draw and prepare your blood in our office for this treatment.

Zirconia Ceramic Dental Implants

Zirconia implants are a ceramic-based alternative to traditional metal/titanium dental implants. They not only are more beautiful but are also healthy for your mouth and body.
