Invisalign can correct many issues, including overbites and underbites. However, sometimes Invisalign isn’t the best option for more complicated problems. During a free consultation, your orthodontist at North Oaks Dental will examine you and determine the best solution for your smile. If he recommends Invisalign, you can take advantage of a special payment plan. If he suggests braces instead, you can choose either conventional braces or the more discreet clear ceramic braces.
Yes, our dentists and compassionate staff have lots of experience in helping patients overcome their anxiety. We’ll make you comfortable in our private care rooms and take the time to answer all of your questions and explain every detail of your procedure. If you’d like a distraction, you can use headphones to listen to music while we work. We also offer three kinds of safe dental sedation, one of which will provide the right level of relaxation for you.
Our Zoom teeth whitening system removes many stains from teeth and makes them look brighter than drugstore whitening products can. For a longer-lasting solution that can cover stains that don’t respond well to whitening, you can choose tooth bonding or durable dental veneers.
Having bleeding or tender gums is common but not normal. These problems are the first sign of gum disease, a serious problem that can lead to rampant tooth loss. A majority of people will be struck with gum disease, which also has been linked to health conditions like diabetes and heart disease.
At North Oaks Dental, we treat gum disease with gentle therapies. We can identify this problem early before it takes over the mouth.
Dentures are just one way to replace missing teeth. Removable dentures are lifelike, but function can be a problem. We use dental implants to replace single missing teeth or to stabilize your dentures. Implants give you function nearly equal to that of your natural teeth, and our implants can last a lifetime.
Yes, there is a good chance you can! That’s because our dentists can improve your bone strength by performing a bone graft. Or we can possibly use mini dental implants instead of full-size ones. Mini implants work well in many instances, including stabilizing dentures.
Many people worry about getting a shot at the dentist, which is understandable. For certain procedures, we may gently administer a local anesthetic (given as a quick shot) to numb a specific area where your dentist will be working. Your absolute comfort is our goal, so we offer sedation options if needed, too.
Yes, we happily accept most dental insurance. We’re a participating provider with Delta Dental Premier and Blue Cross Blue Shield, and we accept payment from most major dental insurance plans. To simplify your visit, we’ll file claims for you and accept assignment of benefits.
We offer convenient Saturday appointments, plus we’re open extended hours during the week. On Tuesdays we’re open until 7 p.m., on Thursdays we’re open until 6 p.m., and we have Saturday hours from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. As always, if you have a dental emergency, we’ll get you in the same day! Just call our office at 248-220-7021.
Yes, we offer Invisalign® orthodontics as well as traditional orthodontics. Invisalign® is a great option to discreetly straighten your teeth and improve your smile. The appliances are clear, wireless, and metal-free. We have a board-certified orthodontist on staff, plus we offer free orthodontics consultations.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Excellent visit ! Dentist was very patient and experienced! Wonderful visit!! Staff is awesome also!
The lobby was beautiful and it was clean. The staff was very professional and friendly, it was a great experience.
I recently moved to the area and needed a last minute appointment for tooth pain I was having. Turns out I needed my wisdom teeth removed. I was very nervous as I’ve heard horror stories but the doctor assured me i would be ok and they got me in for my extraction the next day. I am shocked at how easy it went. By the next day I was already up with barely any swelling and zero bruising. By day 3-4 I was virtually back to normal. Thank you for north oaks dental for taking good care of me :)
Very friendly and accommodating staff! Will definitely return!
Very clean, nice and friendly staff, punctual visit

First time getting a tooth pulled! Had a big hole in my back wisdom tooth and waited about 8 months to get it dealt with. My medicaid dentist booked me for 2 months out so I got fed up with the pain and made an appointment here, where its worth the money. They booked me 3 days out (next business day)! I came in a bit nervous but it honestly wasn't bad at all! Dr. Hotait did an excellent job getting my infected tooth out with little to no pain and made me feel super comfortable. It went remarkably smooth and I was very impressed with the whole process to say the least. The whole thing came out and was all done and over quickly. I wish I could have kept my tooth but I get it haha. Thanks again! This place is great in all ways and is my go to Dentist for sure. Thanks again! My mouth and brain feel soo much better having that tooth out of there. Very happy I came here!
