Special Interests & Training
Dr. Hyatt has an area of special interest and extensive training in the area of direct resin bonding, a method of repairing, resurfacing, rebuilding, veneering or cosmetically improving teeth in one visit, often without removing any enamel from healthy parts of the tooth. His patients love this method of care, not so much because it is less costly than porcelain crown restorations, but more so because much of the natural tooth enamel can be preserved and a beautiful smile can be achieved.

Another of Dr Hyatt's special interests lies in the field of dental implants. Knowledge and techniques have improved so much over the past 8 or 10 years, that many people do not realize how predictable and often simple, it can be to replace missing teeth with solid permanent implant teeth that look and feel like beautiful, new, natural teeth.
