"He works hard to help you understand." Dr. Watkins Makes a Real Difference
Watkins Family Dentistry: Look no more. This is where you want your care. Not only is Dr Watkins incredibly knowledgeable, he also works hard to help you understand the care you need and why. The staff is rare. Every single employee I have been in contact with goes above and beyond to make me feel so welcomed. You truly matter to them. I’ve been to 8 dentists since 2006. I’ve tried so many and have been dissatisfied...No one comes close to the care I receive at Watkins.View on Google
Dr. Watkins is a great dentist. If you want to know more information he always is willing to educated you. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.
I have received services from them for the last 3 years, and I have been very pleased with their service...I fully support recommending them for dental services.
The Dramatic Difference Made by Implants
Featured Procedures & Services
We place dental implants and restore them with your crown, bridge, or denture of choice. Implants replace both the tooth and the tooth root, for increased stability and improved durability.
If you are missing a full arch of teeth, our dentist can treat you with the innovative All-on-6 dental implant method. By attaching a denture to only six dental implants, you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
BOTOX Cosmetic injections can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Our team can also use these injections to relax the jaw muscles, providing relief from TMJ Disorder and teeth grinding.
Dermal fillers can restore volume and youthful plumpness to your face. We offer multiple dermal fillers, including Restylane® Lyft, Restylane Silk, and JUVÉDERM. Our team is fully certified to administer these injections.
Dental anxiety causes many patients to avoid trips to the dentist. To help anxious patients get the care they need, our dentist can prescribe oral sedatives that can be taken before treatment.
Other practices may take weeks to get your crown because they need to work with a separate dental lab. With our CEREC machine, we can precisely craft natural-looking dental crowns and more in our office in one visit.
