  • We believe that it is our responsibility to provide the most up-to-date best available dentistry to our patients.
  • We believe that having a healthy mouth and beautiful smile can greatly and positively affect a person’s life.

When you are looking for the right dental practice for you, it all starts with the dentist. Dr. Tenney has extensive training above and beyond that required for certification and maintenance. He has advanced training in cosmetic and restorative procedures, as well as specialty services such as sleep apnea treatment. Dr. Tenney has honed his training with extensive experience. The quality of his restorations speaks for itself in our Before and After gallery.
