Paul Peterson, DDS
At Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry we embrace a medical model philosophy where you get much more than an exam of your teeth and a cleaning. “I approach each patient analyzing the entire system. Looking beyond the teeth and gums to the musculoskeletal and nervous systems of the head neck and jaw. Disorders such as TMD and Sleep Disordered Breathing can wreak havoc on bodies and lives. We change lives when we are able to identify, diagnosis and facilitate treatment for sufferers of these conditions.”
Dr. Paul Peterson is a second generation dentist. “I had the opportunity to observe first hand the great relationships my father shared with his patients. He was always focused on quality and honesty. He taught me that. It was his greatest gift to my professional career. I saw how his patients became his friends and how they trusted him. He truly had a positive impact on their lives as an exceptional dentist.”
Dr. Peterson’s Passion Driven Purpose is for continual education from the country’s leading minds with the goal to provide services that can most impact his patient’s lives. This journey shaped his career and lead him to create a practice focused on Veneers, Full Mouth Reconstruction, TMJ Disorders, Sleep Apnea, Orthodontics based in 3-D diagnosis and Orthopedic Facial Growth and Implants.
Dr. Peterson has experienced TMD, headaches, neck pain and sleep apnea first hand, he also watched family members deal with debilitating headaches and migraines. This motivated him to search out the best research and clinical practices to help his loved ones, himself, and others like them. He is uniquely qualified to relate to much of what his patients are suffering from. He spends a lot of time with each patient in diagnosis and planning to understand the full spectrum of symptoms and set goals with them for treatment success.
When it comes to esthetics Dr. Peterson prides himself on creating natural looking beauty. He will spend time discussing every aspect of smile design and tooth characteristics for each patient. He takes into account the entire face, customizing for each person, every time. He is very involved in the process start to finish to be sure our patients get the smiles they are dreaming of. This becomes obvious as you browse our galleries of before and after makeovers.
Most dentists will go a career without performing a full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Peterson’s education not only makes singularly qualified, but At Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry it is one of our routine services. We have refined the process so that after the planning phase you are able to have a full mouth reconstruction completed in only two visits.
Dr. Peterson is very excited about our newest advances in orthodontic treatment. We are able to correct the skeletal relationships that cause the tooth wear, TMJ pain, and apnea in our patients better than ever before. Best of all, when we intervene early in our children and teenagers, we can prevent the pain from ever occurring!
With a passion for delivering the highest quality possible every time, and a dedication to stand behind his services, you can rest assured there is no one more qualified for you to put your trust in!
