Our Technology

Technology has come a long way in a short time in the dental field. We love learning new ways to make our patients’ visits safer, more efficient, and more affordable.

3D Imaging
Our cone beam 3D imaging, or CBCT, gives us a crystal-clear image of the bone. A CBCT image can help diagnose diseases of all hard and soft tissue. Being able to offer our patients such a detailed image may help catch and diagnose a disease in its earliest development.

3D Scanners
3D scanners make goopy impressions a thing of the past and take highly accurate digital scans of your teeth and jaw, giving us the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D on a computer screen.

3D Airway Modeling

3D Airway Modeling allows us to get a complete picture of your airway opening and make note of the soft tissue to come up with a comprehensive treatment plan.

Professional Photography Studio
With the help of our professional photography studio, we can take amazing before and after photos of our patients.

Trial Smile Design
Trial Smile Design lets our patients try on a new smile before their permanent restorations are made. This gives you a chance to make sure you’re happy with the shape and color of your teeth and it gives us the chance to make sure your new bite is functional.

Air Purifier
Air purifiers, including our hospital-grade HEPA air filters, purify the air throughout the office and chairside. They eliminate most airborne bacteria and impurities, keeping the air safe and healthy for everyone.

Giving Back

Read Our Patients’ Reviews

I just left my first visit with the doctor and staff at Kinard Family Dental. It was all together a different experience than I had gone through at other Dentists offices. The hygienist was incredibly thorough, and explained every step along the way. The Doctor was very kind and helpful, and I am glad my wife sent me here to get my teeth examined and plan my future treatment. The office manager is just great, really dove into what my bill was, and why, in a way I could understand. Highly recommend this dental office!


I’ve been going to Kinard Family Dental for better than 2 years now and would highly recommend this practice to anyone!! When I first started going, I had not been to the dentist in a long while due to anxiety of the dentist. The office staff is nothing but kind and considerate. Dr. Kinard is one of the most compassionate people I’ve ever met. She explains everything to you and then goes at your pace. I used to require nitrous oxide when getting simple dental procedures. Dr. Kinard and her entire staff have put all my fears aside and I no longer need that! I’m forever grateful to Dr. Kinard and her team for first class service. My whole family is now seeing Kinard Family Dental for all of our dental needs!!


Undoubtedly, the very best dental experience I’ve ever had. From the first day I visited this office I felt cared for and treated like family. Dr. Kinard is caring, compassionate and gentle.I have been terrified of any dentist my entire life but Dr. Kinard and her team (Meagan, Andrea, Sarah & Priscilla) made the experience easy and painless. I just love their enthusiasm and patience. After a long consultation, where Dr. Kinard took the time to explain a plan of action and timeline of my chosen procedure I decided to move full steam ahead. It was now or never I had a lot of procedures done with Dr. Kinard and the results are nothing but stunning. I couldn’t be happier! I can honestly say that I now love going to the dentist and seeing everyone I highly recommend Team Kinard for all your dental needs. Thank you Team Kinard!


Show your teeth some love.
