At Dr. Jamie Guthrie’s office, we strive to provide a comfortable and pleasant experience using the latest technology available. Dr. Guthrie and her team will always explain the recommendations, the advantages and options available, as well as the fees and time required for treatment. Our goal is to help you establish a foundation of good oral health and restore your teeth so that you can be proud of your smile.
The latest technology is used to make dental visits more comfortable. Digital x-rays and intraoral cameras are some of the tools we use to diagnose and explain treatment. Our video presentation gives information that is easy to understand and comprehend about any treatment you may need. Our TV screens that lie directly above you while you receive your treatment are a popular hit with those who have been dental phobic in the past. Watching your favorite show can be a nice distraction during dental treatment. Nitrous oxide is available and we also offer neck pillows and blankets to keep our patients comfortable.

Here are some scary statistics:
-About 8,000 people in the US die from Oral Cancer each year
-About 30,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.
-The 5-year survival rate is only 50%
However with early detection 5-year survival rate increases to 80%
This is why our dental team uses Velscope technology in addition to our visual exam. Velscope allows us to detect possible cancerous lesions earlier.
