Dr. Robert Serafin and Dr. Tamara Shore serve patients with a wide range of custom treatments designed to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Prevent serious oral health problems with an appropriate home care regimen and regular dental visits. We encourage all patients to take a proactive approach with dental care and offer several preventive dentistry solutions to keep tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues at bay.
Schedule your next dental exam in Carlisle, PA, with us so that Dr. Serafin or Dr. Shore can diagnose and detect any oral health problems and determine whether further testing is needed for oral cancer. All patients need to come in for an annual exam and oral cancer screening so that we can examine the tongue, gums, teeth, mouth, and jaw thoroughly.
Root canal therapy is the best course of treatment for patients with teeth that have an infected pulp. This procedure removes the infection and fills the canals with a special material to prevent further dam-age. We typically cap the tooth with a dental crown to restore its shape and appearance.
We use an intraoral camera to perform a quick and accurate diagnosis during your dental exam in Car-lisle, PA. This camera produces clear and precise images of the teeth and gums in real time so Dr. Serafin or Dr. Shore can explain exactly what the situation looks like while you are sitting in the dental chair. This helps reduce office visit times and provides a better patient experience.
Our office is equipped with a digital x-ray system that helps us capture high-quality images of the teeth, gums, and jaw without exposing the patient to high levels of radiation. These images are reproduced on a computer screen for immediate review and allow us to perform an accurate diagnosis.
Maintain infection-free gums and a healthier mouth with periodontal maintenance treatments. Regular deep cleanings can prevent an infection from returning after gum disease treatment and allow us to detect and diagnose any other issues related to your oral health.
We can treat early stages of periodontal disease with scaling and root planing therapy. Dr. Serafin and Dr. Shore use special tools and instruments to deep clean below the gum line, remove plaque and calculus buildup, and smooth out the surfaces of the teeth.
We do everything we can to accommodate emergency cases at our practice. If you have had a tooth knocked out after an accident or need immediate attention from our dentist, call us with your concerns and we will schedule a visit as soon as possible.
