Meet Our Doctors:

Dr. Julia Gildon

I'm Julia, and originally from Wilmot, AR. I went to the University of Arkansas and received my BS in Microbiology. I then attended Louisiana State University obtaining my DDS degree. Since graduating from dental school, I've been fortunate to practice in several very successful dental offices. I feel that my experience allows me to serve patients with the utmost care. learned from some of the best. I feel like I incorporate the best of it all into your visit at our office. That being said, your visit with us is real. We want to get to know you. Too many times in the past 15 plus years have I heard and witnessed how much people hate going to the dentist. That being said, my daily goal is to create an atmosphere that is open, fun and personal. I will do anything that I can to make you comfortable.

On a personal note, I am married to Cody, and we have three kids, Tully, Lindy, and Jolee. They keep us entertained and busy. On the weekends, you can either find us at a sporting event or enjoy time outdoors. We also like to spend time with our two dogs. Shooter is a Weimaraner, and Sparkle Shimmer Shine is a Catahoula mix.

Everyone on our team is someone that I would trust with my family. They truly want your dental visit to be pleasant and provide the best care for your dental concerns.


Veneers

You may already know that a veneer is a thin covering over another surface. In dentistry, a veneer is a wafer-thin layer of super-strong porcelain that convincingly substitutes for natural tooth enamel. When bonded to your teeth, veneers can create a natural-looking, beautiful new surface. That's because dental porcelain, like natural tooth enamel, is translucent and tough. But it doesn't stain like tooth enamel does.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Many people only go to the dentist when something is wrong. That is truly a shame, because they are missing out on so many preventive services that can save discomfort — and expense — down the road. Regular dental visits are essential to make sure oral health problems — from tooth decay to oral cancer — are detected and treated in a timely manner. Some individuals may need to see the dentist more often than others to stay on top of problems like plaque buildup and gum disease, but everyone should go at least once per year.


SLEEP APNEA

It has been estimated that 60% of men and 40% of women between the ages of 40 and 60 years of age snore. Snoring occurs when there is a partial obstruction of the airway which causes the palatal tissues to vibrate. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway is completely blocked for certain periods of time. As many as 20 million people in North America may have sleep apnea. Snoring is a social problem, particularly for the spouse, but obstructive sleep apnea poses a significant health risk for the patient in that it can lead to irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes.
