Periodontics is a specialty of dentistry concerned with diagnosing then treating gum disease and the placement of dental implants. A dentist will recommend seeing a Periodontist when a patient’s gums are in need of a specialist’s help due to disease, cosmetics or implant placement. Together, working as team, the dentist and periodontist will combine to decide on the most effective treatment option to provide the highest level of care.


Prosthodontists specialize in replacement of missing teeth and the restoration of teeth. They are at the forefront of dental implantology and concentrate on preserving a healthy mouth, creating tooth replacements and dynamic smiles.


Endodontists specialize in issues concerning the inside of the tooth. When the inside of the tooth is infected or inflamed an endodontist may perform a root canal procedure, often referred to as endodontic treatment.

Pediatric Dentist

A pediatric dentist is required to take at least 2 additional years of schooling following dental school. The additional training includes the study of child behavior, unique requirements of children’s dentistry and children’s physical growth and development. A pediatric dental office is focused on the treatment of children – this includes the staff, office atmosphere and furnishings.. all is designed to put a child at ease.


An orthodontist uses braces, retainers and other devices to straighten a patient’s teeth and correct jaw miss-alignment.

The majority of bad bites are inherited. Genetic problems include protrusion, crowding, spacing, extra or missing teeth and jaw growth problems.

Other bite problems develop over time due to thumb sucking, loss of primary or permanent teeth, an accident, etc.

Our Happy Customers

"I have had two procedures done by Dr. Sprague. The first was about a year ago and I had a root canal and new crown done all in the same visit. He was very competent, affordable, fast and caring."


"He really is a wonderful dentist. I have been plagued with dental problems always and he made me feel so at ease, everyone there is great. I had extensive dental work done and he was great as were his prices. He is very gentle and thoughtful and even called to see how I was doing afterwards. And he is easily accessible in a dental emergency, which is a huge deal. He makes the experience as pleasant as it can be, if you need proof see me laughing in the dentist chair in the video by Yelp on his website...I was about to have a tooth extraction and a bone graft. He's awesome!"


"Just the best dentist ever. Dr Sprague is extremely professional and caring. His assistant, Idania is also very nice and helpful. Highly recommended!"
