Our Dentist: Your Oral Health Advocate
Our highly skilled and experienced dentist Dr. Eric Thornton, DMD is the core of our dental practice. He is dedicated to providing exceptional dental care for all ages and acts as your personal oral health advocate. Behind the scenes, Dr. Thornton has undergone years of education and has advanced training in specialty topics such as dental implants and Invisalign.
Before your appointment, Dr. Thornton reviews every patient chart, past exam notes, correspondences with other specialists and past/current X-rays to ensure your appointment is as thorough as it can be. Once the day gets started, his schedule is filled with thorough examinations, diagnosing issues, and creating custom treatment plans. He utilizes his years of experience to provide a wide range of services for each specific patient, from routine teeth cleanings and fillings to more complex procedures like dental implants. After all the appointments are done for the day, he will spend several more hours documenting your appointment, on the phone consulting specialists and/or reading complex CBCT scans taken in office to treatment plan surgeries.
The amount of hours spent on your case when you are not in the chair cannot be overstated here at Limestone Dentistry in Jeffersonville, IN.
