An extraction is performed to remove a tooth, whether because of disease, crowding, or damage. When extractions are required, the area around the tooth will be numbed and your dentist will remove the tooth.Learn More
As a new patient, I had my teeth cleaned for the second time at Alta Dental since moving here. It was the first time that I did not dread going. I am one of those older people with difficult dental experiences from the past. The hygienists who have worked on me both times at Alta were thorough, but gentle and very personable. I have finally let go of my dental dread
I’ve been going to Dr Wetherhold for 20+ years. He’s such a kind and compassionate person. I’m a strong believer if you treat you employees well, that behavior overflows and spills onto your customers/clients/patients and that is exactly what I experience with every visit! Thank you Janelle! You are amazing!
I’ve been a patient at Alta for many years and I would like to share how amazing they are. I am in such good hands with Janelle and Doc, they are so thoughtful and thorough with their care. I highly recommend!!!
