From Our Family to Yours
  • Kindness Matters

    Kindness & dignity are a right, not a reward.

  • Grattitude

    Seek gratitude first & always. You can't have gratitude & be anxious at the same time!

  • Make Lemonade

    Barriers are an opportunity. We find a way to win.

  • Assume the Best

    Assume the best about patients & the team. No tolerance for gossip.

  • Smile Anyway

    If it's a hard day, remember you are a blessed child of God.

    We create profit for mission work in our community.

    We are always finding ways to get better at what we do!

Dental Implant Placement & Restoration

We offer dental implants as a permanent solution to restore your oral health and your ability to smile with confidence.

You can be confident that you’ll receive the highest standard of seamless care in a familiar, friendly environment. Our skilled team has assisted in many dental implant procedures and will be there to support and encourage you through all stages of your treatment. We are also pleased to offer complimentary sedation for all our dental implant patients.

Periodontal Laser Technology

At Flint River Dental, we are always updating, improving, and finding new ways to improve what we do for our patients, including offering periodontal laser dentistry services. We tailor our treatment approach to each individual patient and come up with a plan that works best for your unique case.

If you have gum disease, we can examine your teeth and mouth to recommend the most effective treatment for restoring your oral and overall health.

Sedation Dentistry

We are proud to offer sedation for our patients to help them remain comfortable and relaxed during complex dental procedures such as extractions. After the procedure is finished, you will be provided with care instructions to follow at-home during the healing process.

In some cases, a follow up appointment may be needed so we can ensure your mouth is healing properly or place a restoration in the area where a tooth has been removed.

Please contact our office at (256) 537-8878 to schedule an appointment with our exceptional staff today!
