This was my first visit and I am duly impressed. Everyone was fabulous. Dr. Burneson spent part of the day dressed as a MOLAR WITH A GOLD CROWN and dancing outside the office. Nice to see the Boss do that. I was handed over to Traci who took pictures and X-rays and then Jill who cleaned my teeth. I’ve been lucky to always have great dentists. But my teeth have never been so thoroughly cleaned by anyone. Also signed up for the Adult Dental Care package which is a very good deal for me. Very happy. I’ll be back. Thanks.

My husband and I have been patients at Today’s Dentistry for 20 years. The dentists have changed over the years but the caring, professional service has not. We give all the staff a big thumbs up!

It was wonderful to have hygienist Jill back after some surgery and appreciate the kind and professional staffing… but Jill is a gem

When I needed to see a dentist in Ashland I was dreading going. But this place, the dentist, the staff, Mark and the other hygienist, knocked my socks off. They were kind, informative, thorough and made me feel so comfortable and at ease. I would highly recommend them. 4 Stars without a doubt. 🙂

What questions should I ask a new dentist?

Having a dentist who can serve as an advisor, support your wellness journey, and advocate for your dental health is crucial. Finding a dentist and team that’s a good fit for you can make all the difference in your comfort. 

When deciding on a dentist for your personal wellness support team, you’ll want to ask questions such as:

  • Is gum disease or gingivitis something I should be worried about?
  • Am I at risk for future dental issues?
  • What are your tips for better oral hygiene at home?
  • Do you offer any payment plans?
  • Why are my teeth so sensitive?
  • Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening treatments?
  • What is causing the pain in my teeth?

When you visit Today’s Dentistry in Ashland, OR, our expert dentist, Dr. Burneson, can provide you with personalized recommendations to improve your oral health. In case there are any problems, we can provide a detailed treatment plan to help get the health of your smile back on track.

How often should I see the dentist?

Dr. Burneson recommends visiting the dentist at least once every six months. Even if you have impeccable dental hygiene habits, some places around your teeth can’t be reached without specialized tools. By visiting our Ashland office twice a year, we have the opportunity to ensure your teeth are fully cleaned as well as check for serious conditions like oral cancer and periodontal disease.
