Dental Implants

These are the Cadillac of dentistry. We can replace one, some or all of the teeth with permanently fixed crowns or bridges, as well as, stabilize dentures.


The revolutionary invisible way of straightening teeth. These series of digitally made aligners work comfortably and methodically in the same amount of time as regular braces.


Our traditional braces are affordable from ages 11 to adult. A friendly professional experience will yield amazing cosmetic results.

Sleep Apnea/Snore Treatment

This serious medical and social condition affects 20-25% of our population. We have a program to screen, test and treat this condition to promote optimal health and save relationships.

Oral/Systemic Health

Our office culture strives on the importance of the mouth to body connection. This philosophy is based on scientific research that oral bacteria do bad things to the body.

Dental Hygiene

Periodontitis is a silent, destructive disease to gums and bone. We diagnosis and treat this condition, as well as, educate and encourage ongoing hygiene maintenance.

Root Canal Treatment

This is a signature part of our practice. We pride ourselves with the expertise, knowledge and skill set to make this procedure comfortable and successful.

Through whitening, cosmetic veneers and cosmetic crown lengthening patients can accomplish an alteration to mask the unwanted and to create the beautiful.

Meet Dr. Cary A. Shatto

Dr. Cary A. Shatto is a highly skilled dental professional, with over 20 years of experience in helping patients get the results they deserve. After many years of practice, Dr. Shatto has the experience and expertise in providing comprehensive dental care, orthodontics, implantology, cosmetics and sleep treatment in a caring, comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Compassion and understanding are staples in his office.

Dr. Shatto believes in the philosophy of the complete dental health model where there is an oral systemic connection, or in other words, a direct correlation between the mouth and how it effects overall health of the body. Eradicating harmful bacteria caused from gum disease and decay are just part of the equation. Straightening crooked teeth is not only a cosmetic reward but more importantly aids in the reduction of bacterial hiding places. Even replacing missing teeth with dental implants or fixed bridges is important in digestive chewing efficiency and keeps teeth from separating leading to food impaction. Lastly the breathing airway from your mouth to your body has been highly overlooked as it relates to sleep because the sleep apnea/snoring epidemic is slowly killing many Americans.

Dr. Shatto’s philosophy of the complete dental health model is important to him and his team for the well being and quality of life for his patients.

  • “Highly Recommend”

    I’ve been a patient as have my children for 10 years or so & can’t imagine leaving. Office staff is super friendly & helpful (especially Linda). Every hygienist I’ve had has been thorough, well trained, and extremely competent. Dr. Shatto is friendly, knowledgeable, has a gentle, steady hand during procedures, and offers to the point advice & education. I trust that I’m in good hands with all of the staff here. Office & equipment is clean and in good maintenance. Billing is not always transparent after a large, complicated claim, so it’s always good to reconcile your account after your insurance pays. Overall, I’ve been to other dentists & this office is the one I trust. Being a patient here is an enjoyable experience.

    – Nica R.

  • “The Very Best Dentist”

    Dr. Shatto and his staff are highly professional and kind, they make you feel comfortable. He has been my dentist for 10+ years and I feel he is very knowledgeable and cares about his patients. He’s always good about telling you what he is doing during any procedure and checking to see if you’re “OK.” I have recommended him in the past and will continue to do so. They are rather pricey but mostly worth every penny!
