CLEANINGS & PREVENTION
Regular exams are an important part of maintaining your oral health.
Your regular exam will take about 45 minutes. Each regular exam includes a detailed teeth cleaning, in which we will clean, polish, and rinse your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up on the tooth’s surface.
Your smile is one of your most important features. Dentistry is continually evolving, and with a variety of advanced treatment options, achieving a beautiful, healthy, aesthetic smile is made easy for patients of all ages.
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the gums surrounding your teeth. Gum disease is one of the top reasons for tooth loss in adults, and because it is virtually pain-free, many patients do not know they have the disease.
During your first dental examination with x-rays, you will be given the opportunity to discuss your dental health and goals. What is important to you, is priority for us. You will be presented with options to meet your dental goals. We offer many different services.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities (malocclusions*). Orthodontic treatment is provided by an oral health care provider known as an orthodontist, who has completed two to three years of additional training beyond dental school.
ORAL & MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY
No one wants to lose their teeth, but sometimes it is necessary to undergo an extraction to restore and maintain the health of your smile. Extractions are never your dentist’s first choice, but in certain situations, the preservation of your oral health may be dependent on it.
Periodontal treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease. Your dentist and dental hygienist will evaluate for periodontal disease and recommend the appropriate treatment.
Imagine undergoing a complex dental treatment like a root canal, extraction, or oral surgery. When your treatment is complete, you have no recollection of the time it took, the pain, the noise, or the discomfort you were expecting. We are pleased to offer our patients the option of comfortable, safe, and effective sedation dentistry.

Don’t Take Our Word, See What Others Are Saying
My husband and I were recommended to Mark Phipps D.D.S. and we were very pleased. When we walk into the office, we were greeted in a friendly manner and assisted with paperwork. Mark Phipps, D.D.S. Did a thorough examination and explained what was required, since I had a few problem areas. I was very pleased with my office visit and my husband felt the same.
My husband, daughter and I have been coming to Dr Phipps since we moved to Auburn in 2018. My husband and I both have had some complex dental needs and have had great outcomes. I completely trust Dr Phipps’ judgement, knowledge, and ability to take care of my family’s dental needs, big and small. The entire staff is knowledgeable, professional, and understanding. One of the best things about this office is that they don’t belong to a big Dental/Medical group where you just become a number and get lost in voice prompts when you call. They’re able to provide personal and immediate assistance. Love this dental office!
As always I was greeted with a smile and a professional manner. Waited a few minutes was taken in back and spoke with the dentist again with having been with Dr Phipps and his office for more than 30 years it was exactly as I expected, very attentive, eager to please, and concerned that I received the care I thought was appropriate. When I got ready to depart and to pay my bill two or three of the chargeable things had been waived and reduced to the minimum of a consult since I had primarily questions and he answered them all. Great. If you need a family Dentist, then this is the office for you.
