Our services

Periodonthal Services

Implant Dentistry

We are experienced in all phases of implant placement and restoration. An implant is a titanium cylinder that replaces the roots of a missing tooth. After an initial healing period, a post and crown are attached to the implant and the missing tooth is restored. We can replace and restore a single missing tooth or a full mouth of teeth, eliminating the need for dentures.
Cosmetic Dentistry


We have extensive experience restoring the smiles of patients with even the most challenging cases. Combining digital photography, cosmetic imaging, diagnostic wax-ups and extensive communication with our highly skilled laboratory technicians, we design and deliver the ideal cosmetic dentistry that is best for you.
Restorative Dentistry


Restorative Dentistry procedures provide diagnosis and treatments for various dental conditions present in the teeth, gums, and jaw.

Emergency Dentistry

We understand that dental and periodntal emergencies don’t just happen during standard business hours. We pride ourselves on being available to our patients in emergency situations and we make ourselves accessible to them after hours on nights and weekends.

Laser Treatment

Our clinic offers laser therapy via the WaterLase System, which safely uses a combination of air, water, and laser energy for dental treatments. The WaterLase System is virtually painless and can be used instead of the traditional dental drill.



Periodontics focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases of the gums and bone supporting our teeth and restoring the periodontia to a healthy condition.


Orthodontic treatments are used to align and straighten teeth while realigning the overall bite using devices such as invisalign, braces, retainers, and headgear.

What our patients think

Susan A

“I’ve been seeing Dr. Kershenbaum for many, many years. For years before visiting his practice I disliked dentists in general and found great anxiety when sitting in a dentist’s chair. Dr. K has put that anxiety to rest. He is a very caring and patient dentist and takes the time to talk and make you relaxed. Dr. K takes his time explaining the procedures that you might need. His office is bright and the staff are a great group of wonderful ladies.”

Anita A

“Both Dr Rapps and Dr Kershenbaum are not only efficient and highly competent Dentists but caring, patient and genuinely nice individuals as well. Their staff and dental assistants are great too. For years I detested going to the Dentist before I met Dr. Rapps. Now it is not a chore going to the dentist. Any chance I get I recommend their practice.”

Gina G

“If you are looking for: professionalism, well-educated, efficient, clean, highly skilled, friendly, affordable and caring, then look no further! From the minute you walk in the door you will know that you have found the right place. I am a very hesitant, scaredy cat and this is the only place I will come to. I’ve had a lot of work done by Dr. Klein, the periodontist and multiple extractions (5 at once) by Dr. Kershenbaum and can’t get over how skilled they are. Everyone in the office is great at what they do and work hard to make you comfortable. You won’t finder better dentists and staff then these folks. Give them a try!!”
