State-of-the-Art Dental Training & Expertise

In today’s world, a dentist’s education only begins in dental school. Since graduating from the Dental College of Georgia at Augusta University, both Dr. Vason and Dr. Grisham completed Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residencies at the VA Hospital in Augusta, GA. They have subsequently trained at the world-renowned Pankey Institute, considered to be one of the top sources of continuing education in the dental world. The Institute teaches the philosophy that when the teeth, jaw, and bite are functioning properly, they will be healthy and attractive, and last for a lifetime. To achieve this, extreme precision, customization, and an unmatched attention to detail are paramount.

Transforming Smiles for the Better Every Day

You can also achieve the confident, eye-catching look you desire thanks to our wide array of advanced cosmetic and restorative dental services. We can make your teeth look like they are ready for the red carpet. Furthermore, with dental implants, we can replace your missing teeth with a prosthetic that looks, acts, and lasts just like the real thing.
