Real 5-Star Reviews "A Wonderful Place"
Best place I could have ever gone.The people there were fantastic. Answered all my questions quickly and honestly. If I had a problem all I had to do was call. They get my highest recommendations.
It is so refreshing to go into a dental office, where everyone you meet are genuinely friendly and caring about you. They are not judgmental and they explain everything to you. My husband and I have found a wonderful place to have our dental needs taken care of and look forward to a long relationship with them.

Dental anxiety should never prevent you from
receiving the treatment you need and deserve.
Many adults postpone or forego important treatment because of dental phobia, often placing their oral health at risk. With several sedation options available, our dental team can perform your procedure with minimal discomfort. Our dentists are trained to administer nitrous oxide, oral conscious medication, and intravenous (IV) sedation to help you achieve deeper levels of relaxation during your visit.
Your comfort is important to us. Our dentists encourage you to be frank with us when it comes to your feelings regarding dental treatment. Sedation helps many people relax under our care; for others, simply being able to meet the dentist and become educated about certain procedures and their risks and benefits can help achieve a better relationship with dental care. Regardless of your needs, our dental practice, serving greater Harrisonburg, is prepared to accommodate. Your search for a truly comfortable dental experience ends here!
"I love my new teeth! They feel so natural. I knew I would never wear a denture. Dr. Mac and the staff are great. Totally pain free process with the oral sedation. Thank you SMILES FOR LIFE!" Regina P.

A Focus on Implant Dentistry
Dental implants are a landmark in dentistry that replace lost tooth roots, boost overall oral health, and allow crowns, bridges, and dentures to function just like natural teeth. Implants anchor restorations directly to the jaw, so you can eat any foods you choose and speak with total clarity. Our dentists can place and restore your implants under one roof in either our Staunton or Bridgewater locations. We do not need to refer you to other offices or specialists.
All-on-4 is a special type of implant treatment that holds dentures in place using just four implants. While many traditional implants cannot support restorations immediately after placement, All-on-4 implants can–often without the need for preparatory bone grafting.
Unlike traditional bridges, implant-supported bridges allow you to replace a few consecutive missing teeth without having to crown the healthy adjacent teeth. Furthermore, implants can prevent the bone recession that occurs after teeth have been lost or extracted.

Incorporating state-of-the-art technology into every aspect of our practice allows us to provide more precise, comfortable treatment than ever before, helping you to experience the very best oral health benefits. When planning your procedure, our dentists use low-radiation x-rays and computed tomography (CT) scans to assess the health of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. If you need periodontal therapy, we use a soft tissue laser to target compromised tissue. Laser treatment can accelerate recovery as well as reduce bleeding and swelling. For those who require tooth restorations, we offer CEREC® same-day crowns that closely resemble the look of your surrounding teeth.
Whether you are undergoing a simple procedure or a complex treatment such as dental implants, our innovative technology enables us to provide comprehensive care in one convenient location. In many cases, we can even create a digital mockup of your expected results, so you can feel confident about your treatment plan.
