Often patients feel anxiety, or are uneasy if they need to have a dental procedure. At Fenton Smiles, we offer personalized services to give patients very detailed explanations and information.

Technology allows our practice to simplify each patient’s experience, and give better end results, making each process smooth and seamless. Our practice provides technology such as 3D printing, CT Scanning, Digital Impressions, and many more.
Our team is always striving to provide the latest technology available in the dental industry. Fenton Smiles continues to expand our technology by adding new and innovative procedures, tools, and techniques to our practice. This technology gives us the ability to capture images, and create a detailed and customized treatment plan for each patient.
The environment of the office itself was very well thought out and comfortable. The entire staff is easy to talk to and very happy to answer any questions. After my cleaning I was thoroughly impressed with the amount of technology that was used to show me what exactly I could need to get worked on.
