Meet Dr. Futenma
Dr. Carl Futenma is a general dentist who embraces a philosophy of comprehensive care. Believing that dentistry should offer more than just a beautiful smile, he is dedicated to helping his patients achieve and maintain optimal oral health, function, and aesthetics. He has been in practice since 1999, and has forged a positive reputation among patients and colleagues alike.
A Family-Friendly Practice
We offer a full range of dental services for patients of all ages. We believe that optimal oral health begins at a young age. Therefore, we encourage our patients to bring their children in for frequent visits. By implementing proper oral hygiene habits early on, your child can enjoy a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
In addition to preventative care, we offer a wide variety of restorative and cosmetic treatments. Whether you are looking to restore your chewing function, treat gum disease, or straighten your teeth, we can meet and exceed your expectations. Learn more about what we have to offer by visiting our services page.
Advanced Technology for Accurate Care
With the constantly-changing world of dentistry, we believe there is immeasurable value in staying up to date with the latest techniques and technology. Dr. Futenma and his entire staff frequently attend continuing education seminars so they can provide the most accurate care possible.
At Creative Smiles, we employ the use of advanced technology, such as dental lasers, digital x-rays, and the innovative Pinhole Surgery Technique™, which is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum grafting.
Patient safety is our top priority. The diagnostic imaging used at Creative Smiles is completely digital. Our x-rays emit 90 percent less radiation than conventional radiograph units. When you choose our practice, you can rest assured you will be treated with the utmost care.
A Focus on Patient Comfort
We understand that going to the dentist can be a nerve-wracking experience for some patients. To calm nerves and provide comfortable treatment, we offer options in sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or a combination of the two can be administered to induce relaxation and a pleasant patient experience. We also offer NuCalm®, which is an all-natural way to relax without the use of narcotics.
