All the Services Your Family Needs

Every beautiful smile starts with healthy teeth. Our Bayport dentists provide preventive services like professional cleanings and routine dental exams that preserve your oral health by preventing serious dental problems in the future.

Our caring team welcomes children of all ages to our practice. As parents, we know how to help your kids relax when they visit us, and our gentle approach sets the stage for a lifetime of conscientious oral health care. If you or your child participates in sports, we also offer athletic mouth guards that are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly for  ultimate protection.

Restoring a Damaged Smile

No matter how much care you take with your family's oral health, things can go wrong. If a tooth is damaged or decayed, dental crowns will restore and protect the tooth from further damage.

Bridges fills the space left by a missing tooth, and dental implants are a full tooth replacement that offers a permanent solution for a missing tooth. Our customized dentures also replace missing teeth, and we can design them to be removable or we can secure them in place with dental implants. If you need help relaxing for any of these procedures, we offer soothing sedation options so you can get the treatment you need, free from stress and anxiety.

Problems like broken or chipped teeth are easily fixed with treatments like dental bonding and tooth-colored fillings. We also offer revolutionary Fastbraces, a unique orthodontic treatment that can perfect your smile, often in a matter of months.

Our natural-looking porcelain veneers are a popular treatment because they transform your smile by correcting a number of cosmetic imperfections. Our effective professional teeth whitening is a fast, affordable way to refresh a dull smile. 

Customized Care in a Friendly Setting

Protecting your oral health shouldn't be inconvenient. Our early morning hours accommodate your family’s busy schedule, and we’ll work with you to find affordable options for covering the cost of your dental treatment. Our dental membership plan includes free basic treatments twice a year, as well as discounts on certain services.

After practicing for 35 years, Dr. Filson and Dr. Hei understand what it takes to make your dental visits pleasant and stress-free. Our office is warm and welcoming, and it won't be long until you feel like a member of our family. We love getting to know our patients, putting them at ease, and helping them understand the importance of routine oral health care.
