“I am a continual student in the field of dentistry and I provide sound dental practices while staying current with technology. I am not interested in selling dentistry to my patients. I am concerned with their dental health and how they feel when they are in my practice and when they walk out the door. I am part of my community and care about those I serve.”

Office features

Digital Check-In

When you visit your dentist, you want to move through quickly and comfortably. Our digital check-in will take the hassle out of filling out forms and keep patients moving through the system with ease. Digital check-in also allows us to save your information so that you don’t have to fill out the same paperwork before each trip to the dentist.

Televisions

At Levens Family Dentistry, we understand that the dentist’s office can cause a bit of anxiety for some people. We want to do everything we can to alleviate that anxiety. Our office has televisions throughout to make your appointment a little bit more enjoyable. We’ll even allow you to choose what channel you want the television on.

Noise-Cancelling Headphones

Not only do we have televisions, but we also offer noise-canceling headphones for your appointment. We connect them to our televisions so that you can enjoy your favorite show or music during your appointment.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

It is common for people to be stressed or anxious when visiting the dentist. However, finding the solutions can be a little bit difficult. Nitrous oxide sedation, otherwise known as laughing gas, is a time-tested method for relieving stress and anxiety at the dentist office. It is different from an anesthetic because it doesn’t put you completely to sleep but helps you relax during the process. Better yet, the effects of the gas wear off in just five minutes, a much short time frame than a traditional anesthetic.

Essential Oils

We also use aromatherapy in our dental office to help our patients feel more comfortable. Essential oils are reported to have calming properties.
