If you need a root canal, we can refer you to an Endodontist in our specialty wing. If you need an extraction or an implant, we can send you to one of our Dental Surgeons. We also have Periodontists for severe gum and bone problems, as well as Orthodontists for teeth straightening.

Dr. Mockler uses the iTeroⓇ intraoral scanning system to gather digital imaging, replacing the need for traditional X-rays. You’ll be able to see a three-dimensional representation of your teeth, bone, and soft tissues, with no need for uncomfortable trays filled with gooey impression material.
This helps you visualize the way your teeth are aligned as well as the health of your bone tissue. You’ll even be able to see a digital mock-up of how your smile will look after restorations are complete, allowing you to make the best possible treatment decisions for your specific needs.
In addition to 3D X-ray imaging, panoramic images are also possible, helping you see the entire span of teeth in one view. All of these options take very little time, and they’re both safe and comfortable.
Dr. Mockler also incorporates digital technology into her scheduling and recordkeeping systems. This allows the administrative staff to maintain and store your personal dental records efficiently, and it also makes it easy to transfer those records if needed. Even billing and scheduling are made easier through digital technology.
Telehealth is a mode of care that connects patients and practitioners without the need to share the same physical location. In light of recent worldwide health challenges, the ability to connect with a trusted dental professional from the comfort of home can bring considerable peace of mind.
While there are certainly limitations to what can be accomplished through telehealth, there are also benefits. For example, if you suffer a dental emergency, the ability to create an online video connection with Dr. Mockler and her staff can help determine your next steps.
