About Us

We Provide Quality Care for Everyone

We have a few things that set our office apart. Using in-house labs and advanced technologies means we can treat concerns quickly with quality materials, often shaded to match your smile. We also provide IV sedation, which ensures patients of all kinds, including those with special needs or serious anxiety, can receive the care and the smiles they deserve. We believe everyone deserves compassionate care in a welcoming environment, and at Pine Hills Dentistry we strive to meet that goal each and every day!
