Does going to the dentist conjure horrifying childhood images? Wood paneled walls? Janitorial smells? Tiny waiting room with a couple of ratty, old toys? Crummy little cracker jack toy at the end for your troubles?
For many people, this is what comes to mind when they think about going to the dentist. Fortunately, you don’t have to settle for that outdated office down the street.
At Dental Town (with locations in Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Canton, and Cumming), we promise a dental experience unlike anything you’ve ever had. In fact, if you try us just once, we can almost guarantee you will never want another dentist for your dental care, or the care of your child, ever again!
How can we say that with such confidence? Anyone can claim they’re the best, but the reasons to choose Dental Town over any other dental practice in the Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Canton, or Cumming goes far beyond our modern, updated office and friendly team members. We’d like to list just a few of them here for you.
And yes, we do give away toys from our Treasure Chest after every visit. Some things are just tradition. But good toys. Cool toys. Way better than cracker jack.
So grab a soda or cup of coffee (Actually, don’t. We’re dentists! We can’t recommend that!) and keep reading. This is why Dental Town is the right dental practice for you and your family.
1 We Have 78 Years of Combined Experience with Over 25,000 Patients Served/Year
When you come to Dental Town, you are going to get one of the most knowledgeable, experienced team of dental professionals in the country, and one that has dealt with virtually every possible dental and orthodontic problem under the sun.
Our office is equipped to handle any dental need from routine cleanings to complex treatment.

Each of our doctors brings a unique set of skills and qualifications to our practice.
In the last year alone, our office has treated over 25,000 adult and pediatric dental patients, and placed more than 400 sets of braces. Both our adult and pediatric patients find it very comforting to be in the hands of experienced, caring dental professionals with years of educational and professional experience.
If you are a mother or father looking for complete dental care for your children, Dental Town can meet all of your family’s dental needs.

2 Patients of ALL Ages Love Our Office
Obviously, going to the dentist isn’t something most people want, but it is a necessity—not only for healthy teeth and a bright smile, but for your overall health and well-being. Several studies have demonstrated a link between gum disease and heart disease (amongst other serious health concerns), and it’s imperative we visit the dentist on a consistent basis, regardless of our age. (A child should see a pediatric dentist for the first time around their 1st birthday).
Our unique dental office environment, which is set up like a small town (Hey, it’s called Dental Town for a reason), and includes televisions over every chair and live animals for your child’s amusement, ensures your visit to Dental Town is something your child will not forget. In fact, for many families, Dental Town has become a place their children look forward to visiting again and again. Think about how much easier that will make your life!
3 You will be treated as if a member of our own family—with clarity and integrity.
In fact, we are concerned at some of the “overtreatment” that we often see. It’s a serious problem, and we want nothing to do with it. We give our patients recommendations, and we consider it a core value that each treatment is genuinely necessary, and that each patient is genuinely on-board with their recommended treatments before any work is done.
The following are the core values to which every doctor and team member at Dental Town subscribes:
- We are flexible and listen to our patients.
- We inform our patients and give options when possible. This allows us to not dictate a “one size fits all” treatment approach.
- We always strive to provide the right treatment for each patient. We are not looking to sell unnecessary, higher priced services.
- We treat each and every patient just as we would a member of our own family.
- We try to reduce any negative feeling that may come from having dental services “forced” on you or your family.
At Dental Town we aren’t about making a quick buck. Our goal is to give our patients a great experience in the hopes that every patient we serve becomes a patient for life. That is, we believe, the key to a successful dental practice, and it’s how we’ve operated since we first opened our doors.
4 Already Seeing Another Dentist? We Give 2nd Opinions
Have you already been to another dentist and gotten an opinion on the necessary dental treatment for you or your child? That’s ok! We aren’t going to treat you any differently. In fact, we give second opinions all the time to patients from other dentists who come to us because they aren’t completely sold on what their dentist told them.
If you were having a major surgery you wouldn’t see just one doctor would you? More and more, there are so many treatment options available in modern dentistry that getting a second opinion is often the smart thing to do—especially if you are apprehensive about the things another dentist has told you.
We are completely transparent; we’ll share our opinion on your dental issue and present you with a variety of treatment options to suit your case and you budget, your needs and your expectations.
It’s simple. We give you the answers you need to make your own, personal, informed decision about what is best for you or your child.
5 We Provide a Wide Range of Treatments to Meet All Your Dental Needs.
While we are certainly big advocates of routine cleanings and oral exams, our practice offers much more. In fact, we offer a wide variety of dental options all under one roof, so we don’t need to refer you to another doctor. (Seriously, who likes going to another doctor based on a referral?)
Here are a few of the services we offer to our adult and pediatric dental patients:
If your smile doesn’t give you the self-confidence you deserve, we can help.
Our dentists have experience with a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help you gain more confidence as an adult:
- Porcelain dental veneers
- Dental bonding
- Teeth Whitening
- and many more…
It’s been proven that one of the first things others notice about you is your smile. Make it memorable!
Children and adults alike can encounter dental health issues that need immediate restoration, and/or preventative measures in place to ensure the problem doesn’t become worse. At Dental Town we offer a variety of services to treat these issues:
- Fillings and sealants
- Dental crowns and fixed bridges
- Dental Implants
Those are to name just a few. Some of these services are catered toward children, while other procedures are more common as part of an adult’s treatment plan. Regardless of your age or the problems you are experiencing, our preventative and restorative procedures will ensure you get the dental care you need.
Normally, you have to visit a dentist and an orthodontist separately to get the care that you or your children need. At Dental Town, that isn’t the case! We offer full orthodontic services to patients of all ages.
Dental Town has an actual orthodontist that is there to give opinions and answer any questions you may have about your, or your child’s teeth and smile. This allows you to see the dentist and orthodontists at the same time saving you time…and money. We offer all orthodontic treatments, including:
- Braces for children (metal or clear braces)
- Braces for adults (including Invisalign)
- Self ligating braces
- Expanders (used to widen the jaw)
- Habit appliance (used to correct thumb sucking)
- and many more…
As you can see, whether you are looking for routine dental care or needing advanced care to correct serious issues at any age, we are the one-stop solution to solve all of your dental and orthodontic needs.
6 We Listen to Our Patients
This is pretty self explanatory. Know that when you come in to Dental Town, you will be listened to and communication will be on level. We will understand you, and you will understand us. This allows us and our patients to have a great dental experience every time.
7 We Have Multiple Locations for Your Convenience.
Our practice has 4 convenient locations (Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Canton and Cumming), so no matter where you are on the north side of Atlanta, we are close enough to make the drive worthwhile.
Not only is Dental Town committed to providing expert, all-encompasing, customer-oriented dental care in a fun atmosphere, all under one roof. We’re committed to locating those services as conveniently as possible for the Atlanta community.
8 We Provide 24/7 Emergency Dental Care.
Some issues just can’t wait. When you have a dental or orthodontic emergency, it is just that: an emergency! We understand that emergencies are rarely, if ever, convenient. They typically happen after normal business hours. And if they happen to involve one of your children, it carries an additional layer of panic, anxiety and, often, pain, that can’t just be placed on the back burner.
If you do have an afterhours dental emergency, what are you to do? We understand the last thing you want to do is go to the hospital and wait in the ER.
At Dental Town, your emergency is our emergency. Once again, we treat our patients like members of our own family. Rest assured, our practice is on high alert—particularly when a child’s health and wellbeing are at risk. This is why we have an emergency hotline you can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We have an assistant and a dentist on call at all times, meaning you’ll always be able to get in touch with our office, especially when you need it most.
Don’t settle for dental or orthodontic caregivers that won’t be there when you need them most. We say your emergency is our emergency, and we mean it!
9 We Provide Superior Technology and Treatment Options for Optimal Health.
Dental technology has made significant advancements in the last few years, with a variety of new technologies to benefit both dentists and patients. Dental Town uses only the latest and greatest technology and equipment to help us manage your dental health effectively and efficiently.
Here are just a few of the technologies and state-of-the-art treatment options we offer to patients that go above and beyond what you will find at your average dental practice:
- Ingredients — Our office is BPA and silver-filling free. We do not believe in putting harmful materials into your body that could produce negative side effects, when modern advancements have made better options available.
- Intraoral Cameras — These small cameras are used to give both patients and dentists a better look at what’s going on inside the mouth. We are able to identify problem areas earlier, which enables us to provide proactive treatment before a small problem turns into a big one.
- Silver Nitrate Liquid — We believe in managing cavities, and avoiding surgery when possible. Silver nitrate kills bacteria, stopping cavities right in their tracks.
- Soft Tissue Laser — We use a soft tissue laser to remove cysts and tumors from the gums. Typically, patients report experiencing less pain, since the procedure uses a minimally invasive laser.
- Cone Beam CT – We are one of the few offices in the area that is equipped with a Cone Beam CT machine. This allows us to take 3 dimensional radiographs for better diagnosis and treatment planning. This simple scan can often save thousands of dollars and unneeded surgeries due to the ability to better diagnose in advance.
- High end ADEC chairs – All of the equipment used in every Dental Town office is of the highest quality, insuring maximum patient comfort.
10 We Offer a Handicap-Accessible Facility that Caters to Patients with Special Needs.
This is the value of choosing a practice that has specialists. Our pediatric dentists have received additional training to understand the needs and complexities in treating children with special needs. It is important to us that our dental offices are accessible and welcoming to everyone. If you are the parent or guardian of a child with special needs, we want you to know that we have experience working with children who require extra attention. Your child will love Dental Town!
Our office is wheelchair accessible, and we are committed to providing high-quality care in a manner convenient for all of our patients. Everyone needs quality dental care, and we seek to provide that level of service to each and every one of our patients, even if it requires additional accommodations on our end.
Our team will ensure that you, and your child, feel right at home.
11 We Offer a One-of-a-Kind Office With Convenient Hours for Our Patients.
When you’ve seen Dental Town, you’ll know. Our office is unlike any other. Forget the “traditional dental experience” with a stuffy office and the smell of chemicals around every corner! At Dental Town, we want to give you and your child a memorable, pleasant experience.
Here are just a few features of our office:
- Televisions over every chair—Why dread your dental appointment when you can be entertained throughout the process?
- Live animals—Take a trip to the dentist and the zoo in the same day. Your kids will love it.
Imagine taking your child out of school for a dental appointment, and telling them all they have to do is watch TV and see a few exotic animals. What child would fuss about that! Also, especially for parents, we provide flexible scheduling and convenient office hours (8:30am-6pm) to fit your busy schedule! We want to make your experience with us as easy and hassle-free as possible.
12 Our Office Gives Back to the Community (Free Dentistry & Free iPad Giveaways).
Our entire team at Dental Town feel blessed and fortunate living and working in such wonderful communities. We like to give back at all three of our locations (Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Canton and Cumming) by offering a free dentistry day.
For those patients who need dental care but have fallen on hard times and can’t afford it, we can help! It’s just a small part of giving back to our community. We also encourage others to do this; pay it forward!
If community involvement and giving back are important to you in a dental practice, you’ve found the right place at Dental Town.
13 All Dental Town Lab Work is Completed in the United States.
Many dental and orthodontic offices outsource their lab work to other countries (usually China or Mexico). In most cases, they do this to cut costs, which can also have a negative effect on the quality of service you receive in return.
At Dental Town, all of our dental lab work is completed in the United States. Whether it is custom-crafting a set of porcelain veneers, or an orthodontic device for you or your child, everything created by our office is proudly made by the best labs in the USA.
It’s an important point, because the last thing you want to do is spend a significant amount of money on a dental or orthodontic appliance, only to receive an inferior product for your investment.
14 We Offer Flexible Payment Plans and Billing Options to Suit Your Needs.
Going to the dentist or orthodontist can be expensive, and it isn’t something for which families typically budget. At Dental Town, we understand that. We don’t expect you to wave a magic wand and pull thousands of dollars out of thin air for complex dental or orthodontic care.
We work with our patients on payment options, so that we can provide the high-quality dental care that both our adult and pediatric patients deserve. We offer dental financing, flexible payment plans to suit any budget, and more to help reduce the impact of dental and orthodontic care on your family finances. We also offer CareCredit, a very popular form of dental financing. CareCredit offers patients 0% interest (restrictions apply) so you can get the care that you or your children need without breaking the bank or accruing astronomical interest charges.
