Dr. Michael Eeds
The Navarro Dental Center office reflects Dr. Eeds’ philosophy of care. “I like to treat people the way I would want to be treated,” he said. “Our new state of the art facility was designed with the comfort of our patients in mind.” The soft tones of the new office décor help calm patients of all ages as they arrive for services. Wi-Fi access, in addition to TV and music selections are available for patients’ use. To ease the anxiety often associated with dental work, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) , sedation dentistry and may also offer prescriptions for relaxation. The new facility is also fully handicap accessible. We treat a lot of children and offer a special “KidZone” waiting area equipped with video games, TV and toys to help them look forward to coming to the dentist. Dr. Eeds is on staff at Navarro Regional Hospital where he treats younger children under general anesthesia.
“We will always recommend what we feel is best for our patient’s oral health, and with modern technology, we can provide conservative solutions quickly and effectively. We get a lot of word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied patients”. Referrals may be made, as well as appointments requested, on-line at their easy to navigate website or on their Facebook page at NavarroDentalCenter.com.
