An Exceptional Experience

We’re dedicated to delivering exceptional experiences and building lifelong relationships with our patients. This foundation is built on mutual trust, communication, compassion, and understanding your unique situation. We openly discuss treatment options and costs, risks, benefits, and consequences of no treatment and allow you to choose what’s best for you. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, especially if they’ve let dental care lapse. Rest assured, our entire team is dedicated to ensuring your ultimate comfort every time you visit us. Dr. George is one of few general dentists in RI licensed to perform IV sedation so there is no need to let dental anxiety prevent you from getting the care you need. Last, we know emergencies happen and never want you to suffer in pain. It’s reassuring to know that you can call our office 24/7 and get in touch with a real person who works here.


Infection control in our practice is very important to us. To protect our patients and our dental team, we maintain strict sterilization and cross contamination processes recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Training and Expertise

Dentistry is a dynamic and ever-changing field that requires the willingness to change to provide state-of-the-art patient care. As such, our team of highly trained and skilled clinicians, Dr. George, Dr. Bashar A. Shehadeh, and Dr. Dean Trubschenck believe in the importance of attending continuing education courses, conferences, and seminars regularly. Staying current on advances in dental technology, techniques, and treatments enables us to provide the highest quality and comfortable dental care and achieve the most optimal outcomes.

Education and Prevention

As a practice, we believe that preventive care and education are integral to optimal dental health. We focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays. We also believe in a whole-body approach to preventive dentistry that addresses the intrinsic link between oral and overall health. While daily brushing and flossing can keep harmful bacteria under control, improper oral hygiene can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, missing teeth, and raise the risk of systemic diseases. That’s why helping you maintain healthy gums is a top priority at our practice.

How we practice proves that we truly care.
