At Causeway Dentistry, honesty and transparency are two of our most essential core values. We don’t just tell you that you need dental treatment and leave you to make a decision.

We offer a calm and friendly environment, and during your appointments, you can listen to music and enjoy amenities like massaging dental chairs, neck pillows, and blankets. Because we see only one patient at a time, our patients become like family to us, and we enjoy catching up to hear what’s been happening in their lives since their last visit.
