Below you will find just a few of the many qualities that set Pearl District Dental apart from other dental clinics.

We Listen To You

In order to provide you with the best care possible, we actively listen to your questions and concerns, and treatment preference. This allows us to involve you in every step of your oral health care so we can determine together which treatment choices best fit your needs and desires.

Prevention First

168838274_47Prevention is at the core of the Pearl District Dental approach.  As teeth problems get progressively worse, people find that along with increased discomfort , use antibiotics , they also encounter loss of control of their schedule and finances to dental problems.  The good news is that most painful and costly dental conditions are avoidable. You’ll likely find our dental exams to be more thorough than what you are accustomed to. This allows us to inform you of potential concerns and work together to prevent more significant damage and loss of control.

Never Compromise on Quality

89792356_47We never, ever compromise on quality. When prevention or reversal of a dental problem are not options, we believe in doing things right the first time. Everyone at Pearl District Dental takes extra steps to achieve long-lasting, highly functional, and exquisitely beautiful results. Whether providing restorative dental care, cosmetic dentistry, or an entire smile makeover, we use the most advanced, world-class technology and training available. In fact, our entire Pearl District Dental team completes significantly more continuing education credits than is required annually. Dr. Mika, for example has routinely completed significantly more continuing education credit hours for each of the past several years than what is required in the dental industry.
