Unmatched Service

At Cerulean Dental Spa we practice the art and science of dental medicine, with specific attention towards preventive care. Excellent oral health reflects good, overall well-being, which is why maintaining the strength of your teeth and gums is so important.

Healthy teeth makes you look and feel good, in addition to ensuring that you can eat and speak properly. That’s why providing education about good oral hygiene is the most important part of our practice. Thorough examinations and professional cleanings allow us to identify problem areas and conditions while they’re still in their early stages.


From tooth-colored porcelain fillings to complete smile makeovers, Cerulean Dental Spa provides a wide range of aesthetic services. Beautiful, healthy smiles are possible for everyone. We look forward to providing outstanding cosmetic dental care for you.

Smile Makeovers, a comprehensive and customized aesthetic plan, are our specialty. We take numerous details into account to create your perfect smile: coloring, dental habits, the shape and contours of your jaw and facial features and the condition of each individual tooth. Please contact us for more information or to set up a consultation.


Zoom!Zoom! – This is an advanced light-activated bleaching procedure that can dramatically improve the shade of your teeth in just an hour’s time. The Zoom! process is performed chairside by a dental professional at one visit to our office. You can attain the striking smile you’ve always wanted while you relax and watch a movie. The bleaching is safe, effective, and best of all, fast! It’s perfect for individuals with busy schedules who want to see immediate results.

Bleaching Trays – Our convenient home-bleaching system also produces remarkable results. Impressions of your teeth are taken to create customized clear trays, as we supply you with bleaching gel during an informative appointment. These personalized trays can be used multiple times for any future desired touch-ups.


Beautiful, straight teeth are the most popular benefit of having braces, but properly aligned teeth will also improve and protect your bite, make your teeth and gums easier to clean, leading to a lifetime of better dental health. An attractive smile can also improve one’s self-esteem and confidence dramatically. We offer two types of orthodontics at our office: the traditional wire and bracket system and the Invisalign clear trays. Initial orthodontic consultations are always free of charge at our office. Please contact us any time to set up an appointment!

Traditional treatment produces amazing results in our office. We use the latest orthodontic materials designed to move your teeth quickly, with light and gentle forces. We also provide the option of clear ceramic brackets, which are a popular aesthetic alternative to traditional silver brackets.

InvisalignInvisalign is the undetectable and effective way to straighten your teeth. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, we are able to precisely customize aligners which gradually move your teeth to achieve your desired results. Nearly invisible and comfortable to wear, these are easily removable, allowing wearers to brush and eat with ease.


CEREC® by Sirona Dental Systems is the world's only system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. Traditionally, if crowns were required to restore damaged teeth, multiple procedures and a great deal of waiting time in-between would be inevitable.


With CEREC® at your dentist's side, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all ceramic crown! For you, the patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.

Our Amenities

Arm Chair

At Cerulean Dental Spa we pride ourselves on providing complete and exceptional dental care for your whole family in a setting that goes far beyond your typical dental office.

We understand that many people are anxious, to say the least, about visiting the dentist. We believe that Cerulean Dental Spa can offer an experience that will alleviate any fears or reservations you have about dentistry. Our office has been specifically designed and staffed to provide the most pleasant experience possible. Our patients actually look forward to visiting our office.

Our entire practice atmosphere is designed to help you relax and feel stress-free while you experience what we call spa dentistry.

Our complimentary amenities include:

  • Refreshment center with hot and cold beverages and snacks in a comfortable and relaxing reception area.
  • Chair-side massages before and after treatment.
  • Flat-screen display in every room with a wide assortment of movies, television shows and music for your entertainment.
  • Heated massage mats that you control.
  • Aromatherapy candles and oils to add a special spa touch.

Latest Technology

Cerulean Dental Spa is committed to providing our dental family the safest premium equipment and techniques in our tranquil spa ambiance. It is our top priority in investing in the latest technology, as well as keeping our staff up-to-date with continuing education with these products and techniques.

In addition, we use a strictly regimented process of a combination of hot and cold instrument sterilization to sustain cleanliness, essential to ensuring that your appointment is absolutely as hygienic and safe as we can make it. We spare no expenses for our clients, which also includes using only purified and sterile water in our office.

Our latest investments in technology include:


DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary laser cavity detection device. In the past, dentists had to rely on poking and prodding with mental instruments to detect decay, and often times these exams were unreliable. Our DIAGNOdent system uses a harmless diode laser, giving a more accurate reading of tooth decay, even those hiding in cracks and groves. This technology allows us to detect and monitor cavities in their early stages, giving patients opportunities to reverse the conditions or to address them using minimally invasive restorations.

Digital X-Rays & Intraoral Digital Pictures

The digital radiography technology in our office is vastly safer and more efficient than older x-ray machines. There’s no need to wait for the films to develop as our digital images appear on the computer screen instantly! Best of all, digital x-rays reduce radiation by up to 90%. We also utilize specialized digital wand-style cameras to take detailed pictures of all of your teeth. For the first time you can personally see exactly what’s going on with all of your teeth. The pictures facilitate communication between the staff and the patient, and also provides a firm basis for comparing the progress of your dental visits.


Our office has invested in a needle-free laser dentistry system called Waterlase. The dentists can use HydroPhotonics™, a combination of water and lasers, to perform a wide range of procedures on both the teeth and gums. In some cases, the Waterlase can replace the traditional drill, still providing remarkable accuracy without the uncomfortable heat and vibration. This means fewer shots and less apprehension.


We understand how valuable your time is, so we are excited to offer the option of CEREC crowns. CEREC is the world's only system for fabricating all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. You can be in and out in a single appointment with a durable, all ceramic crown, inlay or onlay! We can construct your crown chair side, using CAD-CAM (computer-assisted design-computer-assisted manufacturing) technology. Benefits of the CEREC include fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.

NTI Nightguard

If you suffer from recurring migraines, chipped teeth or jaw pain and tension, a nighttime comfort device might be the perfect solution for you. Oftentimes bruxism (clenching and grinding) can occur while we sleep. The special nightguards that we fabricate in our office not only prevent harmful clenching, they can actually “retrain” your teeth and muscles to break the bruxism patterns. The device is custom made to fit each patient’s teeth exactly. Unlike bulky older models, our NTI device fits only over your front teeth. Patients love how small it is and how quickly they can adjust to wearing it.


Dental implants are the latest technology in tooth replacement. Conventional bridges and dentures are not your only option. Screw-retained porcelain crowns can act as replacements for missing teeth or for teeth damaged beyond restorability. A perfectly placed and constructed implant and crown will look, feel and act just as a healthy natural tooth would. No one will be able to tell that you have an implant. We believe that implant therapy is ideal because of the long-lasting and durable restorations that can be achieved without any impairment to neighboring teeth.
