Meet Dr. Val Ludlow

Dr. Val Ludlow is a master dentist who has earned the trust of his patients over the course of a career that spans more than three decades. He follows a unique approach to dental care and always prioritizes his patients' needs and goals over any other consideration. If you come into our office with a toothache or any other dental concern, Dr. Ludlow will not simply treat the symptoms, but will go beyond the obvious to assess your overall oral health to determine the cause.

Cutting-Edge Technology

Dr. Ludlow is discerning in his use of dental technology and tools. He will only incorporate technology that he believes will truly benefit the patient, such as digital x-rays that limit radiation exposure, the iTero intraoral scanner for precise diagnosis and treatment planning, and the advanced VELscope technology for oral cancer screening.

Dr. Ludlow also uses Tekscan technology for bite force measurement, a unique tool that allows him to identify and treat occlusal issues. Additionally, Dr. Ludlow offers a range of soft and hard tissue lasers to treat different oral health concerns, including the LANAP® laser treatment for periodontal regeneration, the Solea CO2 dental laser for anesthesia-free and pain-free procedures, the DIAGNOdent laser for caries detection, the DELight dental laser system for bone surgery, and many other laser dentistry techniques to provide effective care.
