Patient Education

At 9th Avenue Dental, we make patient education a top priority. Though we encourage regular dental exams and cleanings, we also strive to educate all patients about good oral health practices in order to empower them to make better decisions regarding their oral health. We like to help patients understand why treatment is needed, what may be more urgent as well as what can wait.

From IV sedation to aesthetic dentistry to emergency care, 9th Avenue Dental has something for each and every patient. We operate with the highest standard of treatment in mind, providing you the quality of care that you deserve from your dentist.

Pain-free Dental

Patient anxiety during appointments is understandable, but at 9th Avenue Dental, we work to make your experience a positive one. We do our utmost to ensure that all patients receive their necessary procedures with the minimum amount of pain, which is why we also take pride in providing IV sedation services in our dedicated facility.

Care That's Right For You

At 9th Avenue Dental, we treat all of our patients as individuals, recognizing that everyone’s teeth are different. Our personalized care helps every patient get the care they deserve, and we promise to give you a treatment plan that works for you.
