Searching for a Local, Trusted Dentist?

Meet Our Doctors

Dr. David IjamsDr. David Ijams

Dr. David Ijams and Dr. Clarissa Turner approach dentistry on an individual level, making sure that adequate time is scheduled for each patient to not only undergo an exam, but also to have a detailed one-on-one discussion with the doctor.

Our team operates under the philosophy that the doctor and patient know best, meaning that each patient’s goals, input, and opinions are imperative to developing a satisfying treatment strategy. We do not offer a cookie-cutter approach to dental visits, but instead focus on individualized care.

We listen to our patients, then offer options and suggestions. The experience and expertise you need may differ from our other patients, and we are prepared to accommodate your unique needs and concerns. Contact us to schedule your consultation, second opinion visit, or checkup today.

Patient Education

One important part of our patient care is education. When you understand the state of your oral health and your treatment options, as well as what can happen without treatment, you can make practical, informed decisions. Our doctors will evaluate your oral health and capture x-rays, then share their findings with you. The goal is for us to determine what you really want, as well as what you need. We will help you navigate all of the information about your situation, then answer your questions to help you reach treatment decisions. 


The best compliment we can receive is your endorsement to friends, family, and coworkers. We know that our reputation is based on the quality of the services we provide, so our team is trained to consistently extend excellent, high-quality dental care. In the front office, this means you will be received with a smile, and all of your questions about records, payments, and insurance will be answered honestly and compassionately. In the back office, our clinical rooms, dentists, hygienists, and assistants will adhere to strict guidelines for chairside comfort, patient education, and standards of care. We work with respected specialists and dental labs who support our dedication to quality, so the dental work you receive will be excellent as well. If we can ever do anything to make your visit more comfortable or enjoyable, do not hesitate to ask.


As your preferred dental care providers, we will partner with you in the goal of establishing, then maintaining, optimal oral health. Our teeth can last a lifetime if they are properly cared for and do not sustain injury or infection. We will teach you how to take good care of your teeth, gums, and overall oral health for years to come.

The Connection

Dental visits should be enjoyable, and our team fosters a fun, warm atmosphere. We want to establish a connection with you by getting to know you personally, and we hope you will see us as real people who want the best for your health and well-being. For your comfort and peace of mind, we maintain a clean, airy office and adhere to strict protocols for infection control. The lobby features a kids’ area to entertain your children. In addition, we do not want finances to ever stand in the way of your health, so we work with CareCredit℠ financing and will gladly file your insurance claims. Perhaps all these reasons are why we’re ranked a top dentist in the area!
