Why Our Practice is Different

“Professional responsibility requires us to do things well, but love compels us to do them beautifully”     James Fondriest, DDS, Cosmetic Dentist


Every client benefits from a comprehensive dental evaluation.  While many dental offices may treat patients on a tooth-by-tooth basis without regard for life or family circumstances, we believe in caring for you based on what is best for you at any given time with all things considered. Our skilled team considers your personal history, expectations, present conditions and future needs. Our goal is to support your optimal oral health and overall well being for the long term, through preventive care and state of the art treatment.

By using a comprehensive prosthodontic approach that integrates the best possible occlusal, bite, or chewing function with personalized esthetic treatment options, we are able to achieve a high level of treatment success and patient satisfaction.

Renowned for our beautiful and “natural looking dentistry”, the result is that you’ll not only look better, you’ll feel better — inside and out.


“Good restorative dentistry is more than excellent clinical skills and state-of-the-art equipment. We feel that mutual trust and respect are important factors in the success of your treatment. Our team members believe that open communication can help build a high level of trust and we work hard to make sure that our care is deserving of our patients’ respect and confidence.”

 From the moment you enter our office, we want to make your visit a truly pleasant experience.  We see each and every client as a guest with distinctive and unique needs, values and opinions.  Our job is to listen to you, explore treatment options together, taking the time to answer all of your questions completely, and then respecting your decisions. The more involved you are in making your own dental health decisions, the less room there is for fear and uncertainty.


 I really wanted to enjoy a bright, new smile,

     And I thought and pondered a long, long while.

 Then off to Dr. Fondriest I decided to go,

     He explained the procedure with facts I should know.

 My time in the dental chair would be taken up,

     With making impressions and drilling and stuff.

 And when all the fine tuning was finally done,

     I could see the great changes – oh, what fun!

 Now when passing a store window with the reflections I seek,

     I smile a BIG smile as I take a quick peek.

 Thank you Dr. for your patience and artistic perfection,

     I’m now one happy lady with my new smile selection!!

Many thanks, Caryl Nelson
