About Our Practice

Who We Are

Welcome to Lakewood Dental Associates

At Lakewood Dental Associates, we want every patient to have a smile that’s functional, natural, and beautiful. While our practice does a great deal of comprehensive dentistry (including cleanings, fillings, crowns, etc.), we pride ourselves on being able to manage extremely complex patients. We specialize in helping patients with severe decay, large infections, or broken-down teeth requiring full mouth rehabilitation with porcelain veneers, crowns, or even titanium dental implants.

Lakewood Dental Associates is a fully digital office with intraoral scanning and an in-house lab equipped with a 3-axis porcelain milling machine that makes same-day crowns and veneers. We also offer in-office CT imaging, allowing us to see dental anatomy in 3D, which results in guided implant dentistry that is unrivaled in terms of predictability and patient safety. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Happier Patients

Testimonials and Reviews

I have anxiety when it comes to dentist appointments and LDA was very accommodating to that. To help calm my nerves, they offered me a pair of Beats headphones which I was able to connect to my phone/music; a small touch that went a long way. LDA goes above and beyond for their patients. And they are just as professional as they are hospitable. I couldn't recommend them more!

I want to share my journey with everyone. Shot of a young woman taking a selfie while out hiking.
