Having the right dentist in Bend can make all the difference when it comes to your attitude toward dentistry. Certainly, a qualified, experienced professional can help you maintain a health smile, but there’s so much more to dental care than just that. When your dentist and their staff also provide friendly, personal attention, fully explaining treatment options, you become a partner in oral health and achieve your smile goals. To celebrate National Dentist Day, we want to highlight our own Dr. Joshua Nolan Prentice and the amazing services he can offer you.

Educational Background

Dr. Prentice double majored in chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Oklahoma. In 2014, he graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry in Oklahoma City. But his education didn’t stop then. He pursues continuing education for himself, certifying in Invisalign and completing many hours of training. He also contributes to educating others in the field of dentistry by being asked to be a member on the Dental Assisting Advisory Board at Central Oregon Community College. With his extensive knowledge and experience in dentistry, you can trust that you are getting the best care possible.

Wide Range of Services

Instead of going to a lot of different specialists for various oral problems, you can get all the services you need under one roof for the entire family. For a smile makeover that will give you your dream smile, we offer cosmetic procedures like Invisalign, porcelain veneers, Lumineers, cosmetic bonding, and at-home teeth whitening. If you’re missing one or more teeth, we provide restoration options like dental implants, dentures, and dental bridges. We do our best to accommodate dental emergencies as soon as possible, most often on the same day.

Keys to Successful Dentistry

At Ponderosa Dental Center, we believe that successful dentistry has three keys: communication that is open and honest, thorough patient education, and gentle care. We integrate these values into every appointment whether you’re here for a simple checkup and cleaning or you’re getting a complete smile makeover in Bend. From the moment you walk through the door, we want to make your experience with us as enjoyable and comfortable as possible and make you feel like you will be well taken care of.

Advanced Technology

Dedicated to providing the best care available, Dr. Prentice has provided the best of the technology that the dental field has available. This technology includes intraoral cameras, which allow our patients to get a better view of the problems we see. That way, they can make more informed decisions and feel confident about moving forward with treatment. We also use digital X-rays, which emit much less radiation and help us more accurately diagnose problems. Especially helpful for preparing for dental implants, our CT/Cone Beam Scanner captures an advanced image of your teeth and jaw bone to help us formulate your personalized treatment plan.

So regardless of the work you’re coming in to have done—a smile makeover with porcelain veneers or tooth replacement with dental implants or just a routine checkup and cleaning—we can help you get and keep your happy, healthy smile for years to come. We look forward to getting to know you and your family better. For more information about our practice, feel free to contact us.
