5 Questions with Dr. Hess
So much is missed when a dentist is focused solely on the teeth - and yet, that’s the kind of dentistry many patients have come to expect. The philosophy of complete dentistry follows a unique, yet practical approach and goes beyond the teeth and gums to look at how the oral system works as a whole.
Our standard of care includes a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Hess and complete examination of the teeth, gums, jaw joints and muscles. If aspects of the masticatory system are not functioning peacefully, Dr. Hess will apply the latest and most conservative treatments to achieve natural aesthetics, optimum stability and long lasting comfort.

“★★★★★ I came to see Dr. Hess after years of struggling with jaw pain, a popping noise when I open, and frequent headaches in the morning. Dr. Hess did a complete TMJ exam and prescribed a splint after taking the proper measurements. I wear it at night and after one week I could tell a huge difference. I no longer have any headaches and my jaw pain has mostly disappeared. I continue to work with Dr. Hess and am confident this issue will be completely resolved.

- J. Harrington
“★★★★★ I knew I needed extensive dental work. And this was a big deal for me because going to the dentist makes me nervous. I needed to find a doctor qualified to handle my difficult case, and that could give me a natural looking result. Thank you Dr. Hess and thanks to his staff! They made restoring my mouth to total health painless and predictable.

“★★★★★ The old saying…..as different as night and day certainly applies to my smile! Cracked, chipped, and discolored teeth are now white and even again. Outstanding results from Dr. Hess and his great staff. Thanks again!!
- A. Kilby
“★★★★★ I am so happy with my new smile! I am not so happy with myself for not doing this years earlier. I always stared at the before and after pictures of Dr. Hess’ earlier cosmetic cases. And one day I said let’s do this!! I smile bigger, more often, and I am a lot more self-confident. I love the natural look and feel. The process was unbelievably easy and totally painless. I ask myself again why I didn’t have Dr. Hess do this for me years ago?!
- C. Drake
“★★★★★ I used to have headaches and muscle tension in my neck and shoulders. Dr. Hess made me a special appliance for my bite to make me comfortable. Then Dr. Hess adjusted my bite to make my teeth and muscles work better. Now the all the muscle tension and headaches are gone!! Thanks, Dr. Hess
- C. Boe
“★★★★★ After spending a lot of time searching for a new dentist a local ad for Dr. Hess's office pointed me in the direction of his website. After looking over the website the before and after photos really stood out to me. I decided to meet with Dr. Hess he did a great job working with and explaining the procedure to recreate my smile. After doing a full make over of my smile he did an amazing job. I recommended my wife to his office and since then we haven't been happier. If I would have known the procedure would have been so painless I would have gone sooner.
- T. Barnette
“★★★★★ Dr. Hess did extensive work on my teeth seven years ago and I am still very pleased. I always look forward to an office visit with Dr. Hess and his wonderful staff. They are extremely courteous and professional and I recommend them most highly.
