If you want to be part of a dental office that is extremely focused on serving you and fulfilling your wants and needs, then we are the place you've been looking for. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have or to request an appointment.
Your first visit with Dr. Caven and his team will establish a vital foundation for our relationship. During this initial appointment, we commit a generous amount of time to try to understand your special circumstances. We will review the six critical elements of your mouth (a specialized oral cancer assessment, a discussion about your specific esthetic goals, tooth by tooth analysis with our video camera, gum and bone condition, an easy but thorough TMJ evaluation and a discussion about your sleep patterns, snoring and obstructive sleep apnea). Through this process we will help you establish short- and long-term plans for your dental health that will be agreeable to you.
Please read through this site to find all the practical information you need, such as a map and directions to our office, practice hours, payment arrangements and more. There's also background information about our committed team and the technology we use to increase your comfort and long term dental success. You can even save some time at your first visit by printing out and completing the necessary forms in advance of your appointment. And of course you can see our work in the Before and After section.
The office staff is awesome and Dr. Caven is unlike any other dentist. I've had issues with my jaw and during my initial meeting we discussed in detail my issues. I'm not one to be easily sold but after Dr. Caven discussed all my options I was willing to start down his recommended path. Dr. Caven loves his profession, providing excellent dental care and it shows.- Andrea, Jacksonville, FL
