I would recommend Dr. Henderson’s practice to anyone! I have been going here since I was a little girl and now I have all three of my children going. I recently took my two year old for her first dentist appointment and she loved it and can’t wait to go back! The staff here are wonderful, very helpful, and make you feel like family as soon as you walk through the door.

Featured Treatments 


Many people desire a more symmetrical smile but feel embarrassed about wearing bulky metal braces. Fortunately, our dentists offer Invisalign clear aligners to discreetly straighten your teeth. These clear plastic trays are virtually undetectable and more comfortable than traditional orthodontics. Ask the dentist about Invisalign at your next appointment to find out if you are a candidate. Worried about cost? Many insurance plans provide coverage for Invisalign!

​Dental Implants

Missing teeth can damage more than just the appearance of your smile. Untreated tooth loss can lead to bone atrophy, gum recession, and even a sunken facial appearance. You can prevent these oral health conditions with state-of-the-art dental implant treatment. Implants are prosthetic tooth roots that provide the best support for replacement teeth. Our dentists highly recommend implant-supported restorations for patients looking for the most permanent, comfortable, and durable solution to tooth loss.

​Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a tried and true treatment for tooth issues such as cracks, chips, discoloration, and decay. Our dentists can help you alleviate painful symptoms and restore your health with this simple treatment. Unlike crowns of the past, modern restorations are highly natural-looking. Our dentists will carefully color-match your crown to your unique shade of enamel to blend in seamlessly with your smile. With proper care, a dental crown can protect your teeth for well over a decade before needing replacement.

Porcelain Veneers

If you have slight imperfections in your smile that affect your confidence - but not your oral health - veneers can provide a fast and beautiful-looking enhancement. These thin porcelain shells are bonded directly to the front surface of the tooth to cover gaps, minor misalignment, deep stains, and more.
