A: We have patients from 2 years old up to 99 years old; and we love kids! Click here for more information on your child’s first visit.

 

Q: Do you do implants?

A: Yes. We work very closely with a select group of oral surgeons for the surgical placement of the implants fixtures; and in our office we make the functional and aesthetic implant-supported restorations (crowns, bridges, or denture retainers).

 

Q: Will it hurt?

A: We take care to keep you as comfortable as possible. If you have had problems in the past, please let us know what has happened. Dr. McInturff is gentle, careful, and attentive to your feelings as well as your dental needs!

 

Q: Do you do cosmetic dentistry?

A: Yes. We want your teeth and smile to look their natural best! We believe harmony with skin, hair, eyes and smile are part of what makes each person unique, and at Pullman Dental Care, our porcelain is artistically hand crafted to match nature’s best, not your refrigerator door. We also offer tooth whitening as a safe and effective way to lighten teeth while preserving their natural beauty. We provide custom-fitted bleaching trays and whitening for your home use, or if you prefer, we can do in-office whitening.  If you need fillings, we can now use tooth colored filling materials for almost all restorations, and the modern materials can be virtually indistinguishable from natural tooth structure.
