Though the phrase "bone harvesting" may sound more at home in a science-fiction movie than a dental office, Creek View Dental Group’s experienced technicians are quick to set their patients’ minds at ease. In dentistry, they explain, bone harvesting is merely a procedure that can give a thin jaw the thickness it needs to support dental implants.
The office’s trio of dentists specializes in bone harvesting and other general, cosmetic, and restorative procedures. A friendly staff assists the dentists, diffusing any anxieties with warm smiles and gentle touch. If that’s not enough, the office offers a range of oral and IV sedation treatments that can help patients overcome their fears of pain and of their mouths being invaded by buzzing, insectoid tooth fairies.

Dr. Weston and Dr. Tran and their knowledgeable staff use state-of-the-art equipment and digital x-rays to assess oral health and provide comprehensive feedback. The staffers then banish plaque with a regular cleaning, systematically scrubbing, polishing, and flossing the mouth's many components.
