Gregory L. Jovanelly, DMD & Todd A. Mendenhall, DMD

Welcome to the last dentist office you will ever need. Since 1993, our practice has prided itself on forming close, personal relationships with our patients. Through a combination of providing high quality dental treatment and patient centered care, we have cultivated a positive dental environment that allows our patients to relax knowing that they are not just a "procedure" or a "case." This translates into a practice where patients never want to leave, and one they are comfortable referring their family and friends to.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin, semi-translucent laminates that can be bonded to the teeth. They can correct stains, cracks, spacing problems, and crooked teeth. In 2 short appointments, your smile can be transformed into that "Hollywood Smile" you have always wanted! Our doctors work closely with our laboratory to achieve the finest, most natural looking smile that fits the patient.

Crowns & Bridges

Both crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants. Our dentists take pride in restoring smiles that suffer from gaps and missing teeth by using the finest of materials to provide long-term aesthetic solutions.

Metal-Free Fillings & Restorations

We feel that mercury-free, bonded resins are a superior alternative to traditional, silver amalgam fillings. These restorations are blended to match the patient's natural tooth color and anatomy. In addition, white fillings can replace existing silver fillings to provide a beautiful and esthetic alternative.

Root Canal Therapy

Dr. Mendenhall performs root canals utilizing an advanced rotary system crafted by Tulsa Dental. This computerized system allows for more efficient treatment of infected teeth that benefits the patient with far less chair-time than conventional root canal therapy and minimal post-op discomfort.

ViziLite® Oral Cancer Screening

ViziLite® Plus with TBlue® is the leading oral cancer screening system that was developed to help oral healthcare professionals identify, evaluate, monitor and mark abnormal oral lesions suspicious for pathology including precancerous cells and cancer that may be difficult to see during a regular visual exam. We highly recommend this screening for smokers, tobacco and alcohol users, and anyone over the age of 40.

Snoring Treatment

We are proud to offer a non-invasive treatment option for snoring, known as "Silent Nite". This affordable device is flexible, thin and comfortable for patients, and it exhibits documented clinical success in mitigating or even preventing the disruptive, unhealthy effects of snoring and sleep apnea.

ZOOM! Whitening

We are proud to offer ZOOM! Advanced Power. Our staff has been trained directly through Discus Dental, the creators of ZOOM!, and takes pride in providing this service. ZOOM! Advanced Power is the latest in-office whitening system that uses light-activated hydrogen peroxide to whiten teeth. Patients can expect to see teeth that are 6-10 shades lighter. With routine care, these results can last for years.

Tooth Extraction

Both of our doctors have a wealth of experience when it pertains to oral surgical procedures. They utilize some of the latest concepts in exodontia to remove teeth of all conditions in a painless and efficient manner. Whether you are in need of a single tooth to be removed or a full mouth of extractions, our doctors are here for you.

Mini Dental Implants

Life is really too short to suffer with poor fitting dentures and missing teeth. Using mini dental implants, Dr. Jovanelly is able to stabilize loose dentures or replace missing teeth comfortably, affordably, and usually in one appointment. The minimally invasive procedure causes little or no bleeding, swelling, or post-operative pain. Mini Dental Implants cost 60-80% less than conventional surgically placed implants and are usable that day, instead of 6-12 months down the road.

Dr. Jovanelly is one of the only dentists in the area trained in this exciting procedure, and regularly updates his skills through the American Academy of Mini Dental Implants.

About Us

More About Our Dental Practice!

What makes our practice different? Great question. The Greater Pittsburgh Area is full of dental offices that offer quality dental care. And while we pride ourselves on being great technical and clinical dentists, the vast majority of dental professionals in the region are good technical dentists, as well. What distinguishes our practice from the others is our no pressure, patient-oriented approach to the doctor/patient relationship. We do not judge you by your teeth or whatever oral condition brought you to our office. We value each patient equally, and we strive to reflect that in every action that we take throughout the course of a day. Schedule an appointment and see it yourself!

Using Mini Dental Implants, the patient's loose dentures were stabilized in a single one hour appointment. In this case, we needed to remove excess gum tissue in the upper arch to allow proper placement of the implants which resulted in the bleeding seen in the video. In most cases, this will not be necessary. The patient was able to eat normally at the next meal and reported he had not been able to chew so well in decades. As a side note, this gentleman and his wife traveled from New Mexico so that each of them could receive mini implants after a relative who received mini implants raved about the procedure. They both agree that the treatment and results were worth the cross country trip!

This patient is a well known local entertainer who suffered through years of wearing a bulky removable partial denture. Using the Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. technique, we were able to replace his first molar and bicuspid with mini implants and porcelain fused to gold crowns in one appointment that lasted 30 minutes. (We then tossed out his partial denture). Once again, there was no bleeding or swelling and to prove there was minimal pain- the patient sang at a concert that evening! It really is possible to "grow back" missing teeth quickly, comfortably and affordably using mini dental implant technology! You have seen it on video. Now experience it in person by simply contacting our office for a consultation.

This patient is an attractive, professional woman who lost a premolar several years ago. Using the Shatkin F.I.R.S.T (Fabricated Implant Restoration & Surgical Technique), we were able to place the mini implant and the permanent porcelain crown in one appointment. The entire procedure took 12 minutes and the implant & crown were ready for function immediately. There was no bleeding or swelling and the patient reported mild soreness the first day which was gone the next morning. This technique can be used for replacement of a single tooth or for instantly "regrowing" an entire arch of teeth. If we told you that you could have an implant AND a crown placed for under $2000 in one appointment and eat dinner with it that evening, would you believe it?
