Endodontics (Emergency and Root Canal)
With his advanced training in hospital dentistry Dr. Tordilla is prepared to examine and diagnose tooth traumas such as accidental breakage or pain resulting from untreated cavities. With a gentle approach, he will tailor your individual treatment plan to include necessary extractions and / or palliative dental treatment to alleviate pain.










Restorative (Tooth Repair)

  • Tooth-colored fillings (composites) provide a natural-looking appearance to teeth that may have been damaged due to cavities or trauma. We also use advanced technology of hand-held Laser detection of tooth decay, taking the guesswork out of whether or not a cavity is present. 
  • Porcelain crowns are “caps” that fit over the entire tooth that may have been weakened by decay or injury. They can also be utilized as an aesthetic enhancement in repairing deep stains and cracks. 
  • Porcelain dental bridges are used to fill in gaps between missing teeth, allowing one to eat more easily, and also prevent neighboring teeth from moving out of place.
  • Aesthetic partial dentures have evolved over the years to the point where today’s dentures are very natural looking and comfortable.      


Periodontics (Gum Treatment and Deep Cleaning)
Based on your gums' health, Dr. Tordilla will evaluate and determine an appropriate schedule for gum check-ups and necessary cleaning treatments


Oral Surgery (Tooth Extraction)
Dr. Tordilla has had extensive experience in wisdom teeth and surgical extractions. He will walk you through any necessary extractions and make it as comfortable and gentle as possible.

DEXIS Digital X-Rays

We use a new x-ray technology for taking your X-rays- DEXIS, Dental Electronics X-ray Imaging System.  It’s safer and uses up to 85% less radiation than conventional film and uses no toxic processing chemicals.  Digital x-rays are just another way in which we provide our patients with comprehensive dental care



Our office is proud to use DIAGOdent, a small laser instrument that scans your teeth for hidden decay that can develop beneath the surface enamel of your teeth. Early dectection minimizes expenses related to major tooth repair.  As the laser scans your teeth, it will grade tooth decay using a numeric scale, which allows us to provide a more targeted treatment plan.


Anesthesia using “The Wand”

“The Wand” is a brand new technology that allows us to administer anesthesia with our patient’s comfort in mind. “The Wand”  is a computerized device that administers anesthetia at a consistent pressure and volume, allowing precise control and ease.


Demandforce – E-mail Confirmation and Communication System
We use a convenient, easy to use e-mail and text messaging system in which our patients can request appointments online, as well as receive e-mails and/or text message prior to their appointment.  Our patients simply click to confirm, which lets us know they will be coming to their appointment.  If patients have any questions about their upcoming appointment or need to reschedule, they can also respond by e-mail.
