Meet Your Dentist, Dr. Graeber

Gentleness born of experience...

“I had several bad experiences with dentists when I was a child. So I take as many classes as I can to make coming to see me a pleasure, not a pain. With my training in state-of-the-art dental techniques and 35 years of experience, I’m proud to offer my patients Soft Touch Dentistry — no needles, no drills, virtually no pain.”

Continuing Education: More than 4,000 hours completed Advanced technology for a softer touch “If there’s something out there that will help my patients have a more enjoyable visit, I want to know about it, and I want to know about it first! For example, I was the first dentist in the U.S. for no-drill, no-needle fillings, which is less invasive and doesn’t damage the teeth.  I am one of the first dentists in the U.S. to offer laser dentistry .”

Writing for the professional journals, teaching practicing dentists, and speaking at professional meetings are my ways of  helping my patients achieve more beautiful smiles and more gentle techniques all over the world.”
