Dear patients.

We are happy to say that we are now open and operating under our full schedule.

COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for all of us. Many of you have been forced to wait for dental care, and we deeply appreciate your understanding while we kept our office closed to help control the spread of the coronavirus.

Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority, and we opened with carefully planned and revised office procedures to greatly minimize the risk of infection for our patients and our team members. Our own families are also patients here, so you can be assured that we’ll be taking care of you just as well as we’ll be taking care of them.

For your peace of mind, the measures we are taking to provide a safe dental treatment experience include, but are not limited to, the following:

Upon Your Arrival at the Office

●     Patients will be screened BEFORE treatment and temperatures will be checked. Any patients showing signs of a fever or other symptoms of illness will be asked to reschedule their appointment.

●     ONLY patients will be allowed entry into the office. Parents and other family members will be asked to wait outside whenever possible.

●     Patients are asked to wait in their cars or outside the office until their scheduled appointment time.

●     The waiting area chairs will be spaced apart to allow for 6 feet of distancing.

●     We will ask that you continue to practice social distancing measures in common areas of the office, including the front desk.

●     The front door and the door between the waiting area and operatories will be propped open all day.

●     There will be no physical contact with patients with the exception of treatment.

During Treatment

●     All rooms will be COMPLETELY sterilized before each patient is seated, and public areas, including restrooms, will be cleaned and sterilized frequently throughout the day.

●     All operatories have high-volume air filtration and we have installed a whole office purification system. This system will kill the Covid virus along with other contaminates

●     Our team will STRICTLY follow guidelines set forth by the CDC, OSHA, and ADA in regards to personal protective equipment (PPE) and office sterilization.

●     During patient care, goggles or face shields will be worn by everyone and changed between patients.

●     All surfaces that came in contact with the patient will be wiped with disinfectant including the patient chair.

Checking Out After Your Appointment

●    We will be requesting prepayments when we know the amount of payment which will expidite your visit 

●     All efforts will be made to complete scheduling in the back of the office so you can leave without stopping at the front desk

We are proceeding with an abundance of caution, but we want you to feel as confident as we do that any visit you make to our office will be a safe one.

We also realize that many of you have been impacted financially during this outbreak, and we have solutions to keep dental care affordable for you and your family.

To discuss these payment options, schedule an appointment, or ask us any questions you may have about your next visit, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 757-473-8482

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Loose and missing teeth can affect your oral health as well as your lifestyle, making normal daily activities more difficult.

Custom-crafted dentures from our team at The Smile Center can provide an optimal solution to extensive tooth loss.

So why should you invest in dentures?

Dentures Can Make Daily Life Easier and More Comfortable

Turn Back the Clock

Dr. Scott Parr and Dr. Tara Frey design dentures which complement the unique shape of our patients' faces. In many cases, dentures can improve the appearance of puckered lips and sunken cheeks for more youthful features.

Improve Your Quality of Life

Dentures can restore your ability to speak properly, eat comfortably, and smile confidently. By renewing the function of your smile, you can enjoy an overall better quality of life.

Benefit from Implants

At The Smile Center, we offer qualifying patients implant-supported dentures which stay firmly in place and can prevent your jawbone from shrinking due to tooth loss.

If You Have Missing Teeth, You Are Not Alone

Don't Have Dental Insurance? That's Not a Problem.

We believe every patient deserves the highest standards of care, even those without dental insurance. Our Smiles for Life Plan provides several important services for just a small monthly fee so you can receive treatment when you need it most.

About Dentures

Maintaining a complete set of reliable teeth is clearly important to your health and emotional well-being. Missing teeth affect your appearance and dietary choices, and can also hinder your ability to enunciate words clearly. If you are struggling with loose and missing teeth or a failing denture appliance, new custom dentures can make a marked difference in your quality of life.

Customized to the individual needs of every patient, new dentures look and feel more natural than ever before. Durable and stain resistant, they are designed to fit and flatter your anatomy and skin tone. These prosthetic teeth restore structure to the jawline, filling in sunken areas to create more youthful contour.

While partial dentures (dental bridges) are designed to replace just a few teeth, full dentures can replace a row or complete set of teeth.  At The Smile Center, we provide both traditional and implant-supported dentures. The right choice for you depends upon many factors, including your age, oral health status, and budget. If you have a current denture appliance that is broken or failing, we offer repair services or can alter the dentures to fit dental implants.

Traditional Dentures

A traditional denture appliance includes a flesh-colored acrylic base, which fits over your gums, and artificial teeth. Using the latest digital technologies, Dr. Parr and Dr. Frey create durable, custom dentures to precisely fit the contours of your mouth. When their design is complete, the computerized blueprint is delivered to our partner lab for fabrication, and your new dentures are ready in five to seven days.

Dr. Parr and Dr. Frey can perform any needed extractions, providing relaxation techniques and anesthetic options to keep you comfortable for the procedure. Depending on the individual case, you may receive an immediate full denture placement at that point, or may return for fitting after your gums are healed. If your teeth are placed immediately, you will return for a fit adjustment in a few months. Because the gums naturally change shape over time, periodic adjustments to these dentures are necessary.


Implant dentures are an ideal teeth replacement method for many patients, providing optimal strength and stability. These dentures attach to titanium implants placed in the jaw bone, which act as artificial roots for your new teeth. Halting the jaw bone loss that occurs with tooth loss, implant dentures are a permanent solution, eliminating the necessity of ongoing fit adjustments.

Dr. Parr places and restores dental implants in coordination with Dr. Frey at The Smile Center. In addition, they offer the cost-effective option of converting your traditional dentures into an implant-supported appliance.
