Our approach is unlike treatment in other clinics. Here you will be seen by various practitioners to reach the optimum level of oral health care. Each of our team undertakes and accomplishes their part to successfully achieve your treatment goals.
Dentistry ~ Dr. Arthur Lyford is qualified in and enjoys many aspects of dentistry including:
- Complex Prosthodontics (Crowns, Bridgework, Removable Partial Dentures, Complete Dentures)
- Implant Restoration

- Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)

- Children’s Dentistry
Dr. Lyford is also trained in intravenous sedation as well as oral conscious sedation (Anxiolysis or Relaxation Dentistry) and is a member of the Dental Organization of Conscious Sedation (DOCS) as well as American Dental Society of Anesthesiology (ADSA).
Though Dr. Lee is based in San Diego, California, where Dr. Lyford practices and teaches with him as well, Dr. Lee and Dr. Lyford perform more complex surgery together in the New Hampshire office 8-9 times per year. Many procedures they perform are more complex and demanding which lends itself well to working as a team. This collaboration allows for faster procedures making treatment more comfortable for patients both during and after the procedures. Treatments that Drs. Lyford and Lee implement are MIT (Minimally Invasive Tunneling) gum grafting, sinus bone grafting, immediate placement of implants after tooth extraction, full arch immediate restoration after placement of multiple implants and complex bone grafting in combination with implant placement are examples of some of the procedures they perform together.
Dental Hygiene ~ Our registered dental hygienists will perform your oral prophylaxis treatment. They are skilled in taking and updating accurate medical histories to ensure a safe dental visit. Because they work as a team careful notes and considerations are taken enabling each of our hygienists to completely continue support of your treatment. They are highly trained in oral examination techniques and practice the latest in preventive therapy including oral cancer screening at each dental hygiene visit. They are accomplished in non-surgical periodontal therapy and they work hard to ensure that your visit is both relaxing and informative. As co-therapists with Dr. Lyford they gather diagnostic information and formulate a treatment plan specific to your needs.
