Our Practice



We are a dental practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!

High Standards

A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve.  We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health.  Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health.  We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”.  That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary.  We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease.  Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health.  A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control in our office is also very important to us.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Training & Expertise

As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians.  We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy.  To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning.  We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care.  Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.

A Positive Experience

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success.  We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience.  Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.

Intra oral imaging
Our newly introduced intra-oral camera provides the doctor and the patient with a clear view of every angle of the mouth on a monitor. It's easy, quick and very informative.

Digital X-Rays
We now use digital x-rays for all of our patients. This new technique reduces radiation to the patient by 90% over conventional x-ray films. It is as accurate as the conventional x-rays and can be magnified 300 times its normal size to reveal hidden problems. The x-rays are instantly visible on our computer screen and use no film or chemicals.

Laser technology
With the new laser technology available in our office, we can offer the following services:

Dr. DeGraw-Schwartz uses the laser for crown preparation; it eliminates the cord packing and enables us to make more accurate impressions. The laser is used for crown lengthening, gingivoplasty, gingivectomy, frenum removal and other soft tissue procedures. Tissues can be regenerated in a very short time. We can also disinfect the cavity area before the filling.

Our hygienist, Julia Cherney, is certified by the Academy of Laser Dentistry Society (ALD) using the laser to assist with periodontal therapy. Julia can prevent and treat gum disease by lasering away bacteria below the gum line. The gum tissue can be treated without bleeding and swelling. This FDA approved procedure helps fight against gum disease, and it is very patient friendly.

We are able to treat cold sores and ulcers by killing the virus, with the benefit of immediate pain relief and fast healing.


We also offer I.V. sedation dentistry with an anesthesiologist, as well as minimal sedation (anxiolysis) for nervous patients. Our practice is situated in a professional building with access to other medical specialists that can assist us in providing excellent, comprehensive care.
