Our Philosophy

Conservative Approach

While some dentists are quick to pull a tooth, Dr. Pawlus takes a conservative approach to your dental care, focusing on preserving as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. His genuine desire to help you keep all of your teeth, combined with his advanced cosmetic services, will give you have a beautiful, natural smile that will boost your confidence. Our goal is for your teeth to be as healthy and strong as possible, and we will do everything we can to achieve it.

Friendly Environment

Our patients have often told us how much they love our friendly and caring team and the great environment we have here! When you walk through our doors, you'll not only be greeted by warm smiles but complimentary coffee and drinks, a koi fish pond and an 8 foot waterfall to enjoy. We also have Bose noise-canceling headphones, video glasses with Netflix and big screen TVs on the ceiling of our treatment rooms for your entertainment. It's easy to see that we want you to have a great experience at our practice!

Patient Testimonials

  • "I believe that I receive the best of dental care at Pawlus Dental. Just recently, one of my teeth was giving me great pain and I had it extracted by Dr. Pawlus. In other dental offices in the past I've experience extended pain after extractions, but Dr. Pawlus took plenty of time to remove my tooth with as little trauma as possible to my jaw. As a result, I experience no pain at all after the numbing chemical wore off. I didn't even have to take any over-the-counter pain medications. Not one! Now that was a great relief, indeed. Every one of his staff is highly skilled, and they are all very friendly and kind at all times. I have nothing but the highest respect and admiration for each and every one of the great people who work at Pawlus Dental."

  • "My experience at Pawlus dental was wonderful. The employees are all very nice and always have inviting smiles. The hygienist who worked on my teeth was extremely knowledgeable and caring about my dental hygiene and gave me expert information. They all make going to the dentist much easier." :)


  • "The girls are so wonderful there and the hygienist was so caring about my teeth. She was very gentle around my gum line and explained to me exactly what I need to do more of to make sure my teeth stay nice and clean. I would recommend Pawlus Dental to everyone!" :)


  • "I appreciated the explanations and the care that I received. Everyone was very nice and Dr. Pawlus seems to use the latest dental equipment and use the best materials for dental work. I was very pleased with my care. My filling feel different right now, but they are temporary, so I am anxious to get the permanent one next week."
