Baxmann share over 50 years of combined experience, actively pursue continuing their education in all branches of dentistry, and strive to build strong relationships with their patients.

An important factor in your overall dental health is taking good care of the supporting structures of the teeth, i.e. gums and bone. Regular prophylaxis (dental cleanings) can be scheduled with our highly trained and licensed dental hygienists. They assist Dr. Carlton and Dr. Baxmann with the same dedication in achieving and maintaining a strong healthy smile for their patients. With emphasis on preventive dental care, their main focus is to educate and screen for periodontal disease and oral cancers.
