Fear:

Many people are afraid of going to the dentist.   Usually, people who have fear of dental visits fear needles or had painful experiences with other dentists.  Others are just afraid of the unknown or the expense of maintaining healthy teeth and gums or are embarrassed about unsightly teeth.  Although these fears are real for these people, none of them are good reasons to sacrifice dental health and its part in your overall wellness.

At Dakota Smiles, we run our practice a little differently than the average dental practice. 

We begin with a soothing and comforting environment and we get to know you.  This approach lessens anxiety and helps fearful patients be more open to doing what it takes to care for their dental health.  At Dakota Smiles, you will be as comfortable as you have ever been at the dentist and we will work with you to help you want to take care of your dental health and overall wellness.  The best way to learn more is in a consultation.  Please contact us today to schedule a visit to Dakota Smiles.

 

Appearance:

A beautiful smile is considered beautiful universally.  It is one of the reasons why the advances in dentistry have lead to so many ways to cosmetically enhance the smile.  Following cosmetic dentistry, many people feel younger, sexier and more confident.  If a person is self-conscious about their smile, they smile less and are unable to express fully their personality.

At Dakota Smiles, we are highly trained, skilled and experienced in cosmetic dentistry.  We can give you the smile of your dreams through full mouth reconstruction with porcelain veneers or porcelain onlays.    We are among the most qualified cosmetic dentists in the upper Midwest and we understand the importance and impact of a smile makeover.  If you have been thinking about your options for cosmetic dentistry, why not schedule a consultation with Dr. Lytle to learn more?  Please contact us today to schedule a visit to Dakota Smiles.

 

Time:

One reason that people do not take good care of their dental health is that they think they do not have the time.   In our part of the country, living a distance out of town can add a significant amount of drive time is added in as well.  The fact is, that no matter how busy you are or how little time you have, your dental care and its impact on your overall wellness is critical to your long-term health.

At Dakota Smiles, we will work with you to economize your time.  We do not waste your time when you are in our care and we also will help you understand the importance of proper care.  Of course, each case is different but it is our goal help you integrate your dental health needs into your busy schedule.  We are great communicators and we will help you see the bigger health picture that starts with your dental health.  Surely there is time for better health in your life! The best way to learn more is in a consultation.  Please contact us today to schedule a visit to Dakota Smiles.

 

Career:

It has been said many ways in business and in life, but first impressions are lasting.  And, one of the most memorable features about a person is their smile.  This is why reconstructive dentistry has become so popular as newer and better techniques and technologies for cosmetic dentistry have emerged.   The most common result of a new, cosmetically enhanced smile is a new sense of confidence.  In business, this projects credibility and that leads to being taken seriously.  And, in all walks of life, a beautiful smile attracts attention and makes you stand out.

At Dakota Smiles, we are highly trained in cosmetic dentistry.   Both form and function are served with our cosmetically enhanced smiles.  If you are looking for that extra edge or that career jolt, cosmetic dentistry might be the answer for you.  The best way to learn more is in a consultation.  Please contact us today to learn about your options.

 

Pain:

Many people do not realize the wide-ranging effects of TMJ or a disorder of the tempromandibular joint.  TMJ is most commonly associated with jaw pain and headaches because those symptoms are localized around the jaw.  However, much is interconnected in that area.  This is why so many people suffer from TMJ symptoms that go undiagnosed.  If you have numbness in your shoulders and hands or a ringing in your ears, it is likely you will see a doctor who will focus on the area where the symptoms manifest.  It takes some training in diagnosing TMJ to recognize that migraines, neck pain, headaches, ringing ears, shoulder pain, restless legs, numb hands and back pain can all be from TMJ.  And, therefore, they can be treated with neuromuscular dentistry.

At Dakota Smiles, we practice Neuromuscular Dentistry.  It is part of the training we received at The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.   Neuromuscular dentistry is non-invasive approach to treating TMJ.  Corrective jaw surgery is not performed with neuromuscular dentistry, rather the jaw the aligned by realigning the bite, putting all connective tissues and bones in a proper working order.  If you or someone you know has persistent or chronic pain related to these symptoms, please call us to schedule an consultation.

 

How do I choose?:

Training, experience and references are all key factors to consider when choosing an important health care service.   At Dakota Smiles, we offer a different approach to dentistry.  From the way you are greeted and introduced to our practice to our approach to overall wellness, we are not your traditional dental office.  In our area of the country, there are very few dentists who have received the advanced training that Dr. Lytle has undertaken.  That training and her modern approach to dental health care, sets Dakota Smiles apart from other dentists in our region.

We invite comparison.  If you have any indications at all that your experience at the dentist could be better, we invite you try us for a comparison.  Or if you are seeking out advanced dental services for TMJ or cosmetic dentistry, please include us in your research.  We are always happy to provide references.

 

Money:

Some people do not consider dental care to be health care, but they are one and the same.  Not only from a medical perspective but from an overall health and wellness standpoint, avoiding dental care affects your entire health.  And, as with general health care, the question of whether or not you can afford it is best answered when you consider if you can afford to do without it.


Dakota Smiles is a fee for service practice, which means payment are made directly or through third-party financing companies for the advanced services we offer.  We do accept credit cards.  For more information on the financial aspect of advanced dental services, please call us with your questions.
