Our committment to excellence is evident in our customers' smiles. We invite you to read and enjoy our customer Testimonials and see for yourself the dramatic impact a new smile can have. Peach Tree Dental was developed because Dr. Woody has seen how improving a patient's smile can boost their confidence and overall well being. Cosmetic dentistry* gives his patients new options that can positively influence their dental health and create healthy looking smiles, too.
Dr. Woody has built his cosmetic and restorative skills over 20 years of general dentistry including extensive experience in orthodontics. Because these new treatments are complex in their application he continues to seek out educational opportunities - almost one hundred hours each year. As a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, a prestigious international organization of 5000 members, he is constantly involved in many aspects of cosmetic and restorative dentistry education.
Dr. Woody is a Member of the Academy of Computerized Dentistry, and has completed postgraduate training at the Las Vegas Institute (LVI) for Advanced Dental Studies. The Master Aesthetic Dentist program was taught by Dr. William Dickerson, a Fellow of the AACD.
*Cosmetic dentistry is not a specialty area recognized by the ADA or MDA
Smile esthetics is very important. However, patients also appreciate that these techniques are based on better function and restoration. Dr. Woody and his team focus on creating smiles that are almost indistinguishable in strength, durability and look from an esthetically pure, natural smile. We take a comprehensive approach to your dental condition. Dr. Woody uses more comfortable, no-drill techniques and laser technology to produce long-lasting quality. He also offers full-mouth reconstruction for those with significant natural tooth deterioration using:
- Implants, ceramic crown and bridge, composite white "fillings"
- Cosmetic straightening and/or through orthodontics - porcelain veneers and braces
- Composite bonding to increase the length and width of teeth
- Gum (periodontal) tissue contouring - recreating the gum line after disease or to remove excess gum tissue for a more esthetic smile.
- TMJ treatment: a natural but uneven bite (occlusion) or misalignment from broken and worn teeth is recreated to relieve tension in the jaw (Tempormandibular joint) that can cause neck, head, and ear pain and nausea.
We always welcome new patients of every age. Whether you are new to Carthage or seeking an improved dental experience, we invite you to call our office for additional information.
