It's been said the eyes are the window to the soul. What you may not know is that your teeth are a reflection of your overall health. That’s why finding the right dentist is so important.
Dr. Anne Nicholas’ areas of expertise include periodontics, dental implants and cosmetic and restorative dentistry. After dental school, she completed a three-year post-doctoral program in periodontics and dental implants at Loma Linda University in 1992. In the process of her advanced studies, Dr. Nicholas also completed a one-year residency at the Misch Implant Institute. Dr. Nicholas runs a professional, state-of-the-art practice that provides laser teeth whitening, patient-friendly educational software, and oral cancer screening. A 42-inch plasma screen mounted in the ceiling allows patients to view movies during long dental procedures, and digital X-rays, use 90 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays.
“I am proud to have served patients in our community for over 17 years,” says Dr. Nicholas. “Through continuing education and state-of-the-art equipment, we are able to offer patients and their families the highest level of care in a friendly and relaxed environment.”
CONVENIENT, COMPREHENSIVE CARE
In today’s busy world, it is hard to find the time to devote as much attention to dental care as we should. Dr. Nicholas understands that. In a quest to find a more complete way of caring for her patients, she has developed a multispecialty dental group that encompasses most of the specialties in dentistry and incorporated a special room designated for education and training.
As a periodontist, Dr. Nicholas specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease and the placement of dental implants. Dr. Nicholas is a diplomate with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and a member of the American Board of Periodontists, both requiring the highest levels of training in their perspective fields. She is familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease and can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you have always wanted.
Dr. Nicholas’ colleague, Dr. Adam Geach, is a board certified prosthodontist who has undergone intensive training in restorative dentistry and is highly skilled in all aspects of oral function and health. Whether a patient is having trouble with the alignment of their bite, in need of a tooth replacement, or simply desiring a more cosmetically beautiful smile, Dr. Geach can quickly assess any problem and provide a solution. He has coordinated all aspects of patient care and provides a comprehensive treatment plan for all your dental needs. Dr. Geach is a Diplomate with the Board of Prosthodontics, the highest level of training in this field.
ADVANCED CARE, WITH YOUR COMFORT IN MIND
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, you know how embarrassing it can be. Thanks to modern technology, Dr. Nicholas can help you regain a strong, healthy bite, without the inconvenience of bridges or dentures — often in as few as one or two office visits, using dental implants that are strong, beautiful, and completely natural looking. Dr. Nicholas can restore both your smile and self-confidence. You’ll be amazed by the possibilities.
The two primary goals that guide all activities at Dr. Nicholas’ office are to provide the highest level of patient care that modern dentistry allows and to provide treatment that allows for the highest level of comfort before, during, and after your procedure. Dr. Nicholas also offers her patients the option of being sedated during treatment, so that they have little or no memory of the surgery. The caring and friendly relationship she and her staff have with patients makes them feel at home. Their appreciation for the level of care she provides is her highest compliment.
Whether you are looking for an exceptional and knowledgeable general dentist, want a talented cosmetic specialist for a smile makeover, or are in need of more complex dental care, such as dental implants or bite correction, Dr. Nicholas and Dr. Geach have the education, the experience, and the artistic ability you seek.
