About

Our Practice

For both adults and children, we focus on an integrative and holistic approach. We work to know you, your goals, and your mouth. Treatments may include Sleep & Airway ManagementTMJ / TMDPreventive, Aesthetics (including Implants), Restorative and routine Hygiene & Cleaning visits.

We make sure your whole mouth is working right. We know that each mouth is unique and that’s why each solution is completely custom fit. Your mouth not only has teeth and gums, but muscles and joints too. They all have to work in harmony. Although most dentists don’t focus on the masticatory system, it’s an integral part that we take care to observe and treat as needed.

Whether you’re in pain or problem free, we’re dedicated to your future. At our practice you’ll also get a complete education of your mouth. As a result, you will feel better and look better with pain-free clean and healthy teeth and gums.

Dr. Kevin MuenchDentist

Dr. Kevin Muench is incredibly thorough. He not only cares about each of his patients, but he also loves learning and sharing that learning. His goal is to help you understand exactly what is going on in your mouth, and if there is a problem, how he’ll work to investigate the root cause (no pun intended) and how to fix it.

Dr. Muench is thoughtful in his approach and quick to share a metaphor and a laugh with his patients. He is dedicated to finding out ‘why’ and that is precisely the reason he likes his job so much — because every day is a new learning experience and a chance to solve new problems.

In addition to teaching patients about their mouth he is also a renowned teacher in the dental community.

Specialists We Work With

On our most complicated cases we collaborate with other "system thinkers." It can be hard to find specialists who think about the body as a system, intricately connected in so many different ways and having influence on all the different parts. This isn't how you're taught in school. Yet this is exactly what allows us to solve our most complex cases.

We don't believe in temporary fixes and neither do our partners. If you've visited multiple doctors about your problem and no fix has worked, it's probably because they were working on the solution independently. It's quite possible that you're experiencing an issue that is layered and complex and needs multiple specialists working together. That said, we would only send you to a specialist if we found it necessary to get more information to properly (and permanently) find a solution to fix your problem; we don't waste time or money.

Below, you'll find many of the specialists we work with most.
