From Our Family to Yours

About Us

417 Smiles is a family dental practice that sees patients of all ages. Our family owned practice has a passion for beautiful smiles!!

In addition to routine cleanings, fillings, dentures, partials, root canals, tooth extractions and crowns, our office provides dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, laser dentistry and even adult orthodontic services to get you that smile you have always wanted. We take advantage of ever-improving technology to make sure you have the best experience possible.

Your dental needs are unique, so we will carefully craft a treatment plan that best meets your needs. Throughout every visit, we will not only take the time to answer any questions you have, but also carefully explain each procedure so you can feel confident that you are experiencing the best care available. Our team of caring professionals has a sincere interest in each person’s dental health and appearance.



Adult cosmetic orthodontics improves your smile and self confidence. Our braces are for limited cosmetic cases, not for bite correction. We offer this service to adults only.
If a patient is in advanced stages of gum disease or tooth decay and needs all their teeth removed, dentures can be fabricated to match the shape of your smile.
Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution, so you can smile confidently both during treatment and after. You are able to remove the aligners so you can eat, brush and floss normally.
Our office offers three types of lasers, the Diagnodent, DioDent II, and VersaWave.
Starting your children early in their lives with good oral hygiene can help prevent the most common chronic childhood disease in America which is tooth decay.
Studies have shown that 75% of the population has some degree of gum disease.
Your dentist will decide if crowns or veneers are best for you. Porcelain Veneers are a thin piece of porcelain (similar to a contact lens) that resembles the enamel of the tooth.
When a patient experiences pain due to decay, cracked, chipped, or traumatized teeth, a root canal may be necessary.
