Modern High Tech Dentistry

We love to stay up to date with our technology and our techniques.   A few high tech items your will find in our office include: digital xrays giving us immeditate and accurate diagnostic information, CAD-CAM crown design and milling equipment for making same or next day crowns, high tech intra-oral lighting for helping us see early stages of oral lesions (cancer), CAT scan / cone beam machine for giving us accurate 3-D views of teeth and jaws (helpful in implant planning and root canal diagnosis), computers / TV's in every treatment room,  and intra-oral camera for helping you see what we see!

General Dentistry Services

Drs. Herring and Woolfolk  pride themselves in be able to offer a wide variety of dental procedures.  These include cleanings, fillings, crowns, extractions, implants, veneers, root canals, periodontal treatment, and orthodontics.   We will routinely refer out procedures that we feel are beyond our expertise, but find that we are able to take care of the majority of our patients' dental needs. 

Children’s Dentistry

At our office, we enjoy working with children! We provide exceptional early dental care and will teach our pediatric patients about excellent oral hygiene habits.  We want your children to be excited about coming to see us and offer digital games in our waiting room to keep them occupied.  Our experience in orthodontics especially allows us to monitor the growth of children's faces and jaws and recommend any interceptive orthodontic treatment needed.

Orthodontics for Children and Adults

Dr. Herring is a general dentist and has included orthodontics as a part of his practice since 1983.  He has completed many hours of continuing education taught on orthodontics and has completed over 3000 cases of Phase 1 mixed dentition and Phase 2 permanent dentition smiles.  You can see a few of these cases in our "before and after" section of this website.  We offer a complimentary orthodontic evaluation!  Just call us at 662-323-3245.

We invite you to get to know us through this website. We’d love to have you as a new patient in our practice, and we will strive to help you in making wise decisions concerning your dental needs.
