“How can anyone enjoy going to the dentist? I dread it each time I have to go, however when I walk into the door I immediately change my mind. The staff is incredible, know me by name and even ask questions about my children! I do not hesitate to refer friends to Dr. Walker.”
“Dr. Walker has been my dentist since I moved here 10 years ago. He is very thorough and competent. His staff is very efficient, kind and helpful.”
“I just got a tooth filled and had great apprehension about the procedure. Clay Walker and his assistant, Ticha, made me feel comfortable and comfortably numb. It only took about an hour and what difference. My teeth feel better, no more constant flossing because of stuck food. Thanks, Dr. Walker! You are the best”

We Offer Many Recommended Dental Health Services
- Dental Exams
Initial dental exams are important to establish a base line of condition and treatment of your teeth, mouth and gums. Dr. Walker will check you after every routine cleaning to make sure no new issues are on the horizon.
- Teeth Cleaning
Your teeth should be cleaned by a Certified Dental Hygienist (CDH) twice a year, unless recommended otherwise by your dentist. We remove any plaque build up on the tooth surface, above and below the gum line, then polish your teeth and floss, leaving a beautifully cleaned and sparkling smile.
- Teeth Whitening
There are many choices for whitening your teeth, but none more effective and safe than true dental whitening under your dentist’s care. Ask about this service to brighten your smile.
- Digital X-Rays
Junction Park Dentistry offers the most up date digital x-rays available today. We recommend we x-ray your teeth once a year.
A filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. Fillings are usually used to close holes in the tooth enamel caused by cavities. We can provide fillings that closely match the color of your tooth.
When cracks in teeth develop, fillings are not enough. A crown is place on top of the tooth to protect from further deterioration and pain from an exposed root.
A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of a gap and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
- Root Canals
The tiny canals contain the pulp of the tooth, also commonly referred to as the nerve, originates from the pulp chamber. Any trauma or infection of the nerve will result in the need for root canal therapy to remove the live nerve, which can cause a tooth ache or pain from hot or cold.
A tooth extraction (removal) is necessary when the tooth has decayed to the point that if can no longer provide its intended function. We offer painless tooth extraction.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth that is placed into your jaw. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
Dentures are a set of replacement teeth for any teeth that are missing. There are partial dentures, which take the place of only a few teeth and prevent the others from changing position. If all the teeth are gone, the person would need complete dentures, which replace every tooth in the mouth. Both types of dentures are removable and usually made of metal and acrylic resin, a plastic-like material that is molded to fit the exact shape of a person’s mouth. Suction helps hold the dentures in place, so they stick to the surface of a person’s gums.
- Wisdom Teeth
A wisdom tooth, in humans, is any of the usual four third molars. Wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Most adults have four wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have fewer, or more, in which case they are called supernumerary teeth. Wisdom teeth commonly affect other teeth as they develop, becoming impacted or “coming in sideways.” They are often extracted when this occurs. About 35% of the population do not develop wisdom teeth at all.
- Orthodontics (Braces)
Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Dental braces also known as orthodontic braces, are devices used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth and help to position them with regard to a person’s bite, while also working to improve dental health. They are often used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, cross bites, open bites, deep bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Dr. Walker can determine if you or your child needs braces and give you a reference to a qualified Orthodontist.
