Preventive Dentistry

An enduring smile is built on the foundation of lifelong oral healthcare – both the personal, at-home variety and professional appointments with a dental team you know and trust.

Crowns & Bridges

When one or more teeth become injured, badly decayed, or lost altogether, quality restorative care is needed as soon as possible to preserve oral health.

All-On-4 Implants

A single missing tooth is a serious problem, but extensive tooth loss can be absolutely devastating for your oral health and your overall quality of life.

Had a toothache!! I’ve never had a toothache. I was imagining having an extraction, cancer in my jaw, having to have a crown removed. Dr. John knew immediately that I needed a root canal in that tooth. No cancer, no extraction, not losing the crown! Yay!! He gave me a prescription for an antibiotic. The toothache was gone in a day! I love Dr. John!!

Dr. Polkinghorne and his staff are amazing! They take such great care of their patients. I drive 2.5 hours because he is that good. I recommend him highly for dental care.
Heather J.
Heather J.
I highly rate the staff-especially Lori, but beware that this dentist will NOT work with you, but penalize you if you are unable to make an appointment (due to illness) and that lack of empathy and compassion is a big problem for anyone who is ill (especially during a pandemic-when all of life is stressful enough, and many are facing health challenges). Patients who don't feel well don't need to be tortured by their dentist for missing or re-scheduling 1 or 2 appointments during a process which takes over one YEAR every 6 weeks (or more). Those who work and would like understanding and flexibility when needing to reschedule appointments should find a dental provider who cares about their patients' needs over their rigidity and lack of empathy.

Dr. Polkinghorne has been my dentist for over 30 years! Doesn't seem that long ago. Obviously, a lot has changed in those intervening years; and I've moved around the metro area, but never once considered changing dentist. Good dental care is hard to find. In addition to being a great dentist, he's been a trusted friend with an awesome team that makes the effort to see your care is easy and the best you can get.

I had a sore tooth and I was really worried that I had an abscess and would need months of antibiotics and surgical intervention, sinus lift, dental implant, etc... But, it turns out that Dr. Polkinghorne was able to grind off a high spot and adjust my sleep grinding mouth piece. I feel 100% pain free and it only took 30 minutes! Dr. Polkinghorne is my HERO!
Melissa W.

I am a new patient here and just completed my first visit with their hygienist, who is absolutely wonderful I might add. I was comfortable the entire time and met most, if not all, of the staff. I was referred here and even though my insurance is out of network, the cost is not unreasonable by any means and the office manager is filing everything for me to make sure that everything able to be covered, is covered (which DOES NOT happen everywhere!). I have several things to tackle (which I knew going in) and also have pretty major anxiety however, I felt calm and relaxed(yes, relaxed!) the entire time and left confident in the care plan established. I can sense the entire team is compassionate and truly care about their patients. Overall 5 out of 5, strongly recommend.

Dr. Polkinghorne and his team are simply amazing. I have never been a fan of going to the dentist, but that was before I found a team who truly cares about me. They are always friendly and professional, and the work they do is always top notch. I wish I found them sooner, I won’t go anywhere else for my dentistry needs.
