We know that our patients want a comfortable dental experience without hassle.

When you come to see us, you will always be greeted with a smile and an inviting atmosphere. We are committed to providing you with the best and most comprehensive dental care available today. Educating our patients on proper oral health and the conditions that affect their mouth is one of the most important aspects of our job here at Dougherty Laybourn Menashe Dental.
At Dougherty Laybourn Menashe Dental, we are always looking for ways to help protect the oral health of our patients. One of the best ways to protect teeth is with dental sealants. Dental sealants act as a shield against decay-causing bacteria on the surface of your molars. We recommend that children and teenagers have dental sealants placed on their adult molars as they erupt in their mouth. Anyone whose molars are without a dental filling can benefit from dental sealants.
Fluoride treatments are another great way to help protect your teeth from the dangers of decay-causing bacteria. The enamel on your teeth is what protects your teeth from decay, but over time the enamel on your teeth wears down and can be lost. Fluoride helps to remineralize the enamel on your teeth, revitalizing them and giving them the ability to serve you longer.
We all try our best to keep our teeth in great shape, but it doesn’t always work out. Even the most well-kept mouth can succumb to cavities at some point. When your teeth are in need of some help, we at Dougherty Laybourn Menashe Dental have you covered! We have a variety of restorative dental options that allow us to breathe new life into your smile. From dental crowns and bridgesl, to dental implants and root canal therapy, we have the restorative dental option for you.
One of the most popular cosmetic dental options that we offer is teeth whitening. Teeth whitening offers our patients a way to dramatically alter their smile in a way that people will notice. Our professional teeth whitening options allow us to whiten your teeth by any number of shades quickly and precisely.
Dental veneers are a great way to give yourself a smile that you have always dreamed of. Dental veneers are made of thin strips of porcelain that we place over the front of your teeth. Using this cosmetic procedure, we can alter your smile in virtually any way that you can imagine. With dental veneers, we can straighten your teeth, fix imperfections, make them appear larger or smaller.
At Dougherty Laybourn Menashe Dental, we utilize cutting-edge technology in order to ensure our dental patients can receive the highest-quality care possible.
Sleep apnea is a condition that will affect your ability to breathe while you are asleep. While sleeping, your normal breathing patterns could be interrupted for 10 seconds or longer frequently throughout a single night, and in some cases, it may happen hundreds of times in a single evening. Left untreated, sleep apnea can prevent you from getting adequate sleep, leaving you feeling fatigued and groggy the next day. The long-term health effects could include weight gain, heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure, among other serious conditions.
