Quality Preventative and Restorative Family Dentistry

Dr. Wisdom Akpaka enjoys giving Ave Maria area adults, teens and children the best of dental care, including preventive dental cleanings and fluoride treatments, checkups for oral health problems, treatment for dental disease and gum disease, fine dental restorations, replacement of missing teeth, and cosmetic dental procedures.

A Care Team You Can Trust for the Younger Members of Your Family

Imagine bringing your children to the same dentist you yourself see. We know parents have special concerns for their children and establishing trust with us is important. We are familiar with the oral health of children from infancy through their teenage years. Some patients are as young as two years old.

We know how to work with kids at each state of development and gently perform needed dental procedures. When you bring your children here, you will soon find you can relax, and your children will be happy. We will always spend time with you, updating you about your child’s oral health, answering your questions and helping you help your children establish healthy habits to preserve their smiles for life.

Evaluation of tooth alignment and jaw development are routinely done for young patients at their regular exam so you will know if and when your child is ready for orthodontics. Because Dr. Wisdom is a certified Invisalign provider, your teen may be eligible for smooth aligner treatment in our office.

Expertise for Handling the Dental Restorative Needs of Adults

At some point in our lives, all adults are in need of dental restoration to repair a weakened or damaged tooth, treat gum inflammation, or replace one or more lost teeth. Many adults crave cosmetic improvements to their smile so they can smile with confidence. With today’s dental technology there are often multiple treatment options, and you want to be sure your dentist is “on your side” to fully inform you about the advantages and disadvantages of your choices. You want help making the right decisions for your circumstances. And, you want a nonjudgmental, compassionate dentist who understands your past oral health history, concerns, and even fears. You want a dentist who is more interested in making sure you have the quality care you deserve than personal financial gain.

Dr. Wisdom has the experience, skill, judgment, compassion, and philosophy of care that guarantees you are going to receive conservative dental treatment that is focused on your needs, and that they will listen and respect your preferences, as well as fully inform you about your oral health condition and treatment options. They will also work collaboratively with local dental specialists you might need to help achieve the best results. And, they will communicate with them to ensure the specialists are fully informed about your dental case and needs.
