Our Practice

We are a general dental practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the strength and appearance of your teeth and gums with state-of-the-art procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!

High Standards

A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve.  We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use preventive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health.  Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are keys to optimal dental health.  We strive to provide “dental health care” rather than “disease care”.  That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary.  We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease.  While we are concerned about the beauty of your smile, we are primarily focused on your dental health.  A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control within our office is very important to us.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).  We have two autoclaves that we test weekly to confirm sterilization efficacy.

Training & Expertise

As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians.  We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy.  To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continuing education beyond the standards required by the state.  We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions, as well as review dental literature to stay informed about the newest techniques, products and equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. 

A Positive Experience

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as individuals is vital to our success.  We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience.  Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

Community Involvement

Caring for your patients means more than just providing quality dentistry in the office, it means contributing the greater community in a positive way as well.  Dr. Hughes is involved in several community organizations that show his support for Sedona: Sedona Chamber member, Rotary Club of Sedona Red Rocks, Sedona Trail Keepers, Red Rock Trail Fund, Toys for Tots, Fallen Hero's and provides dental care to the residents at Rainbow Acres.


We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.
