Would you love to improve the alignment of your teeth but are not interested in wearing traditional metal braces? Dr. Woodall can help and has the perfect treatment for your needs. Patients love Invisalign®, a common orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without metal braces.
One of the most common treatments we perform other than fillings is a dental crown. If we recommended a dental crown to you during your last visit, we recommend scheduling the appointment today. Delaying necessary dental treatments can lead to serious complications with your oral health. We know that it can be intimidating to receive a dental treatment that you may be unfamiliar with. Even if you don’t need a dental crown at this time, knowing about this common treatment may be beneficial to you in the future. Read on to learn more about a dental crown and the reasons we may recommend this treatment.
Have you or a loved one ever received root canal therapy? If you haven’t, you may have a bad impression of this common dental treatment. A root canal is a tooth-saving procedure. Although many patients may be nervous to learn they need this treatment, we want to emphasize that due to the advancements in treatment and technology, patients compare the entire process to a more involved filling.

I want to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Pattie Coker, and I am the Office Coordinator for the practice. I recently took the time to write a letter about what I think about Dr. Woodall and this practice. In my position, I have the opportunity to speak with many patients and observe the atmosphere in the office, and I can say that it is such a positive experience, and many new patients comment that they have never experienced such a thorough exam.

When you visit our office for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning, we do more than just clean your teeth and check for signs of decay. We also look for other common issues, such as oral cancer and gum disease. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a serious gum infection caused by bacterial growth along the gumline and around the base of the tooth. When gum disease is left untreated, it will continue to progress and can cause serious complications such as tooth loss and deterioration of the jawbone.
As a parent, it’s a selfish goal to be able to see your children excel in their selected career paths. As a dentist, I am extremely proud that my daughters have strived and achieved their goals as award-winning dental hygienists. It’s not every day that a father gets the opportunity to work with his daughters, but I am blessed that this organically happened to me. If you are unfamiliar, Heather and Haley are my daughters, and they earned their positions as dental hygienists due to their strong work ethic, not because I am their father. It was never my intention to give my daughters a job in this practice just because they were my children. Read on to learn more about how my daughters came to join me in this practice and why you are lucky to have them as your dental hygienists.
