We are a dental practice devoted to restoring, preserving and enhancing the natural beauty of smiles using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!  We are equally dedicated to ensuring that our patients have a reason to smile by providing their dental care in a warm, compassionate andOffice pleasant environment where we are dedicated to their comfort.


Today's Dentistry Offers Beautiful Crowns.  CEREC technology is revolutionary to dentistry because it creates a beautiful, esthetic, strong and durable ceramic restoration that is precisely bonded to the tooth.

It is accomplished using a digital scan of the prepared tooth and creating the restoration's design using powerful 3D software that allows the dentist to customize the result. The design is wirelessly transmitted to a special milling device that will create your restoration using a dental ceramic.

Because this is done in one visit you do not need to have a bulky, messy impression Oldmade of your tooth, you do not need to wear a temporary crown and you do not need to come back on a separate visit, often weeks away, to have your new crown placed. It is all done in one convenient visit that lasts a little over an hour. And with this technology you can have multiple teeth treated at once to save you even more time than having multiple visits to treat individual teeth. More sound tooth structure can also be preserved thus minimizing further trauma and the needless removal of healthy tooth structure as in traditional crowns. Once you experience CEREC 3D you will appreciate the result.

With hundreds of CEREC restorations placed successfully in our patients mouths it has become the #1 choice by them and us to have their teeth restored when chipped or cracked teeth or large, leaky silver-mercury fillings are present.

Cleanings and Prevention       

A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental team to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.Machine

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of Dr. Jackson and your dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.

Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.

Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident and beautiful smile.

Dental Exam

A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by Jackson & Joyce Family Dentistry at your initial dental visit. At regular check-up exams, Dr. Jackson and your hygienist will provide the following:

  • Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): X-rays are essential for the detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: We check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: We check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
  • Examination of existing restorations: We check current fillings, crowns, etc. toKids ensure they are still sealed and stable restorations.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Professional dental cleanings are performed by Registered Dental Hygienists. Your cleaning appointment will include the following:

  • Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line, and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
  • Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
  • Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.

Cosmetic Dentistry       

In the past decade there has been a dramatic interest in cosmetic dentistry. We all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence. Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we are able to improve our teeth and smiles with quick, painless and surprisingly affordable treatments.

Cosmetic dental treatments can:Fillings

  • Change the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth.
  • Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.
  • Improve or correct bites.
  • Lighten or brighten the color of teeth.
  • Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth.
  • Replace missing teeth.
  • Replace old, unattractive dental treatments.

Procedures include Tooth Whitening, Porcelain Veneers, Porcelain Crowns, Porcelain Onlays, Porcelain Fixed Bridges, Composite Fillings, and Dental Implants.


It's great news that the incidence of tooth decay has significantly diminished over the years due to the use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness. However, teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage and sometimes need to be restored back to health. Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function.

Should your teeth ever require a restorative treatment, you can rest assured knowing we will always discuss with you the available options, and recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment. Providing you with excellent care is our number one priority when creating your beautiful smile.

Zoom! Tooth Whitening

 Zoom! is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin. You may have seen the Zoom! process used on ABC’s Extreme Makeover.  The complete procedure takes less than an hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed as little as by 45 minutes of bleaching. (A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Zoom! whitening session.)  The Zoom! light activated whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is Clearunchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 26% or more, giving an average improvement of up to eight shades. 


ClearCorrectTM is the clear and simple way to straighten your teeth without wearing braces so you can show off your smile!  No wires. No brackets. Just clear, convenient comfort-every reason to smile.  With ClearCorrect, your dentist can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners.
