Cleaning, Exam & X-rays

Looking for a new dental home and have been seeing another dentist regularly – Schedule an Exam and Cleaning

Consultation

We recommend patients that have a specific problem area and/or have not been to the dentist in awhile to receive a full exam & consultation prior to scheduling a cleaning

Emergency Evaluation

We set aside time most days to see patients in pain and/or with an urgent need

Welcome To Our Practice

Our practice is owned and lead by Dr. Steven Schiffenhaus & Dr. Alex May – leaders and educators in Biomimetic Restorative Denistry. Our practice philosophy is to help maintain patients natural teeth for as long as possible through minimally invasive techniques and adhesive restorations that “mimic” the natural tooth they are replacing as close as possible. The more of your tooth that we save the stronger it will be and the better the chance we have of avoiding root canals and/or tooth loss. Dr. May and Dr. Schiffenhaus came together to SLOW things down with the focus being on the patient and doing the highest quality job possible. This is modern dentistry for the whole family!

What Is Biomimetic Dentistry?

What Is Biomimetic Dentistry?

The dental profession has moved towards a high volume and high speed business model. We prefer not to see a patient as body that fits a time slot but a unique individual with unique treatment requirements that need to be customized for the individual. Dr. Schiffenhaus & Dr. May prefer to have the time to get to know their patients, thoroughly explain procedures, use the best materials and techniques (not the quickest), give time for the patients to become fully numb, and use proper rubber dam isolation to protect the patient and achieve the best restorative outcomes possible. Both Dr. May and Dr. Schiffenhaus strive for highly cosmetic results that look as natural as possible. They use high magnification including dental microscopes to perform their work with extreme precision. If you are looking for a modern, minimally invasive, high quality, and esthetically driven practice, you are in the right place!”

Our Testimonials

See Dr. Schiffenhaus & Dr. May’s work and what other Dentist’s are saying about it on Instagram:

This “bevel” technique is my current approach to buccal & lingual enamel preparation for overlays...

This technique is based on a hybrid of what I have learned from both Gianfranco Politano & Graeme Milicich both of whom I am grateful for their mentorship.

This is what works in best my hands AND what I find to work best with a CAD-CAM milling approach to minimize chipping & binding during seating

As everyone knows , I am happy to share as much of the techniques and science I have learned on this page. 

But for a more organized and structured approach, please visit The BAARD Institute for more training (link in profile).......

Let’s all elevate together!

Stay Bonded 🤞

(FWIW not my prep, a colleagues beautiful execution of BAARD Overlay protocol & design that said - those are my hands as I was demonstrating my bevel technique on their beautiful prep)
