Yes! We offer Sapphire Whitening System. First you come see our highly qualified Hygienists’ for an impression of your mouth for a customized bleach tray with bleach syringes. The patient then takes the trays home with the bleach, bleaches for 2 weeks and then returns for the 90 minute light procedure! This is a very effective procedure, and we have had many happy patients.

Dear Dr. Dilger:


It all started with my initial phone call to Dr. Dilger's office. I felt so comfortable from the start and after I came in for my first visit it's been all about what I want and what Dr. Dilger and his staff recommends for me. All around, it's been the best dental experience I've ever had.

Going to the dentist used to be a nightmare experience for me. That's all changed when I came to Dr. Dilger. Dr. Dilger's office staff are so warm and welcoming. Visiting them is like going home. Dr. Dilger's calm and caring manner erased all my dental anxiety and for the first time in my life I found myself relaxed in a dental chair. Dr. Dilger and his staff really took the time to get to know me and my concerns. They talked with me about my fears and helped me address my anxiety. Now I visit the dentist and I'm not afraid. I can not express the difference Dr. Dilger has made in my dental life! Thanks so much Dr. D.

I love my new smile.  It was so easy too.  Nearly pain free.  I am considering my lower teeth at a later date.
