Why Dr. Clements could be the right dentist for you
Dr. Clements began practicing as a Valdosta dentist in 1980 after graduating from the Medical College of Georgia. Although many people think Dr. Clements is a specialist, he practices General Dentistry. In 1996, Dr. Clements began the formal study of cosmetic dentistry with the nation’s top 2 cosmetic dentists. Those studies led to Dr. Clements joining the faculty of the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI) in 2000. The owner of LVI recognized his exceptional hand skills and rare artistic eye. Dr. Clements was a Senior Clinical Instructor at LVI for six years. Dr. Clements continues to teach dentists from around the country and the world techniques for cosmetic dentistry and bite reconstruction in live patient care courses. Dr. Clements has advanced knowledge and expertise in cosmetic dentistry and the treatment of bite disease (TMJ) which make us three different offices all in one facility.

Dr. Clements specializes in General, Aesthetic, and Functional Dentistry
The services that a patient should expect to receive from any general dentist will include fillings, dental crowns, cleanings, and emergency dentistry. Our general dental exam evaluates your teeth for decay and failing dental restorations. Clinically, we examine your mouth and face for any abnormalities such as cysts or tumors. With x-rays, we check for abscesses, impacted teeth, and bone health. Any problems with gum disease are noted in this exam as well.
Cosmetic dentistry involves smile makeovers on the teeth that show when you smile. A smile makeover can make you look 10 years younger and can greatly boost your self-esteem. Aesthetic dentistry includes cosmetic improvement for your back teeth as well. Dr. Clements is a nationally acknowledged expert in this aspect of dentistry.
Dentists from our area and across the Southeast come to him for their smile makeovers. Dentists know that smile makeovers and back-tooth aesthetics need to be carefully planned for the type of material involved, the number of teeth involved, as well as the final color and shape of the teeth. That’s why they trust Dr. Clements for their own dental needs.
Functional dentistry deals with bite problems, TMJ, and pain. When we perform functional dentistry, we are improving a patient’s bite, improving the way the muscles and joints work together to bring the teeth together. We routinely expect to relieve most pain above the collarbone including headaches and neck pain. Permanent bite treatment frequently includes aesthetic enhancement. Bite problems and relieving TMJ symptoms are among the most difficult problems to correct in dentistry. Dr. Clements is considered one of the best clinicians available with his neuromuscular approach to these procedures.
