Is It Time to Visit the Dentist? Ask Yourself:

Do you have pain or discomfort?

Toothaches, sensitive gums, or jaw pain–even headaches–could all be signs of infection, disease, or misalignment. Without proper care, your symptoms can worsen, requiring more expensive care. If you are experiencing any discomfort, our dentist can review your concerns, perform an exam, and determine the right treatment.

Do you wish you could change your smile? 

If you've always been self-conscious about crooked, discolored, or misshapen teeth, now's the best time to visit our dentist and learn about your options. At our Lakewood practice, we have virtually unlimited treatment options available to help you discover your best smile.

When was the last time you visited the dentist? 

If you can't remember, don't be embarrassed. Whether you have a busy schedule or dental anxiety, we understand why you might skip the dentist. Dr. Bauer offers flexible weekday hours and the latest technology to make your next visit as efficient and comfortable as possible. We recommend that patients schedule exams every six months.
