See what our happy patients are saying

Dr. Tucker is the best -- I have been going to him since some time in the 80's -- he is so gentle, but so professional and knowledgeable. He has always steered me in the right direction. I will never go to another dentist unless he retires! Love the office and his staff!

Danielle Hartkern Vana review stars

Our entire family has been going to Dr. Tucker for years. The office is immaculate, staff is friendly and Dr. Tucker is the best. He is funny and calming since Dentists can be scary (drills and needles, yuck!) especially for children. We just adore him and would recommend him to anyone!

Stephanie Rose Leonard review stars

Dr. Tucker is a great dentist. I've been going to him for over 10 years now. The office staff has always been very friendly as well and anytime I've had a procedure done it's a very smooth process. Would definitely recommend Dr. Tucker if you're looking for a dentist.

Our expertise

Dr. Tucker has thousands of hours of continuing education and decades of experience providing exceptional service to his patients across all demographics. Experience has its benefits! We are happy to give you the smile you deserve. Below is a list of just some of the services we offer in-office:
Dental Implants
Dental Implants

The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts, which are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. They are then surgically placed into the jawbone.

Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic Dentistry

Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, teeth that have been affected by a range of imperfections or that have sustained damage from trauma or dental decay, can be restored to produce a naturally beautiful looking and functional smile.

Emergency Treatment
Emergency Treatment

Dental emergencies can come about in any number of ways. Whatever the case may be, urgent dental care is needed to provide you with relief and to avoid any further consequences to your oral health or function, as well as your overall well-being.


ClearCorrect straightens teeth using a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that incrementally move the teeth a little bit at a time, eventually aligning the teeth to improve the look and function of your smile.
