Dental Specialties

Gundersen Dental Specialties has your teeth, gums and jaw covered. We are one of just a few healthcare organizations in the nation to offer your family access to a full range of dental specialists.

We work hand in hand with your referring family dentist to evaluate your needs and develop a treatment plan that can give you something to smile about. You may even need the services of more than one of our dental specialists. If so, consultations can easily be arranged, usually the same day, for your convenience.

Specialties we offer:


Our endodontists work to save teeth with deep decay or damage. To save a tooth, they perform root canals to remove the diseased or damaged tissue, and then clean and fill the space. With care, restored teeth can last a lifetime.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons diagnose and treat diseases, injuries and defects that impact the function and look of your mouth and jaw. Seek out these surgeons if you need help with the following:


Our orthodontists diagnose, prevent and correct crooked teeth and bad bites in people of all ages. They treat problems using braces and other appliances. They use the latest treatments to give you a beautiful smile. Learn more about our Orthodontics services.


See our periodontists if your gums bleed when you brush or your gums are receding. These specialists help prevent, diagnose and treat gum diseases. Left untreated, you risk losing your teeth at a young age.


Our prostodontists are here to help if you are missing one or more teeth, or have decayed teeth. They will work closely with you to restore your smile. They offer a wide variety of services including:

  • Bridges
  • Composite fillings
  • Crowns
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures and partial dentures
  • Tooth whitening
  • Obstructive sleep apnea appliances
  • Teeth in a Day® dental implants
  • Veneers

We also offer:


Athletes of all ages should wear a properly fitted mouthguard to avoid the risk of injury. Get a custom-made mouthguard for a minimal charge during a Gundersen Health System Mouthguard Clinic. Custom-made mouthguards are more comfortable and offer better protection than ready-made mouthguards.
