Dr. Samuel Mufson

“The artistic quality of my dentistry and the comfort of my patients are of utmost importance. I am as gentle and painless as possible. I give the type of care I would want for myself. But this care goes beyond the operatory. I will always take the time with patients to explain any instructions and to let them know I am available if they need me. This establishes the partnership we need to keep their smile looking healthy and beautiful.”

Quality care founded on education

“My education is the foundation for the smiles I create each day. Each patient has a unique smile, and it is my challenge to enhance that smile using the most advanced techniques and the gentlest touch possible.”

Committed to professional growth and improvements

“Interaction with my peers is extremely important. The first benefit that comes to mind is the exchange of ideas and the free flow of information that has had a direct influence on my practice over the years. The second benefit is the knowledge that something I may have recommended to a colleague has made a difference for a patient I will never meet. That gives me great satisfaction.”

“The way we practice dentistry today has changed over the past several years. Integration of the latest technology and materials coupled with the emphasis on esthetics, comfort and predictability has improved the quality of care we provide. Hurdles such as creating natural looking restorations, replacing missing teeth, alleviating TMJ and Myofacial pain, eliminating snoring and the treatment of Sleep Apnea have all been addressed and the results have been truly life changing. The result being an overall improvement in one’s quality of life. I take pride in providing my patients with the benefits of the latest advances for gentle, more effective care. One thing has not changed, we still offer the personalized treatment that makes every patient feel special.”

Quality care founded on education

“With the field of cosmetic and restorative dentistry changing so rapidly, I can never consider my education complete — even after practicing for over 20 years. Quality care requires constant, continuing education. As a Fellow of the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI) and visiting Clinical Instructor, my knowledge of dentistry has crossed over into the successful treatment and management of TMJ disorders, myofacial pain, snoring and sleep apnea. My patients trust me with their care, so I owe it to them to offer the best treatments available.”
