Earning Trust – One Patient at a Time
Our first goal, from the moment you walk in the door, is to earn a feeling of trust. We believe the absolute best dentistry we can provide will only take place when there is a strong bond of trust with our patients, and we’re all working together toward the common goals of healthy teeth and gums and a beautiful smile.
Whether your dental needs are a complete exam, cleaning, or anything in between, our staff will provide you with exceptional care. Your six-month visits keep your teeth clean and healthy and help prevent problems down the road by letting us spot them early. We can address your unique concerns and develop a relationship that ensures continuity of care. We look forward to meeting you!
Our pediatric dentists in Fishers, IN strive to make children of all ages feel at ease and enjoy themselves, so bring the whole family along!

We look forward to seeing them for their first dental visit with us when they are five years old and watching them grow year after year.
A Healthy Smile,
A Healthy Body
Did you know that the cause of most tooth loss is not decay? It’s gum disease. And recent studies have established a link between gum disease and your overall health. The good news is that gum disease can be treated successfully, often without surgery. Our commitment to you includes paying meticulous attention to all of your needs for healthy teeth and gums so you not only look your best but also have optimum overall health.
Crooked teeth, worn teeth, fillings, gaps, chips, cracks, and discolorations – you name it, our cosmetic dentist can fix it! It’s no secret that our smiles have a huge effect on how others see us and how we feel about ourselves. Many patients tell us that they would love to fix their teeth, but they assume it will take something extreme to make it possible. They are thrilled to find out there are many conservative options for improvement. Ask us about veneers, bonding, crowns, and more cosmetic dentistry options.
Teeth Whitening – Dazzling Results!
The only way to get your teeth their whitest is by using professional-strength whitening. We offer several options for a brilliantly white smile, without stains or darkness, obtained with the teeth whitening technique that best suits your goal and your budget. The results can last for years! Choose chairside power whitening in one visit or custom whitening trays for excellent take-home whitening.
Damaged teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile, but your functionality in everyday life, too. It’s important to address chips, cracks, or other damage to prevent them from causing further problems later on. Dr. Taler is skilled at providing beautiful, strong restorations for a return to a healthy, natural-looking smile.
Teeth – Fast!
With Invisalign™ and ClearCorrect™ aligners, it is possible to have straight teeth in as little as 9 – 15 months. No braces or wires, and we can create Invisalign in-house with our 3-D printer! And the best part is that no one will know you’re straightening your teeth – because it’s invisible! Clear aligners are easily removable and allow you to eat and drink what you want while in treatment, and brushing and flossing are no problem. We also offer traditional orthodontics for a thorough approach to comprehensive bite issues.
Goodbye Goopy Impressions
With our new intra-oral scanner, Dr. Taler is able to make accurate iTero™ digital impressions that usually eliminate the old uncomfortable tray and putty impression. It can be used for crowns, clear aligners, whitening trays, and more. This technology ensures a more precise fit and improved accuracy, and you’ll spend less time at the dentist and more time enjoying your new smile.
Preview Your New Smile
Cosmetic imaging allows us to show you what can be done with your teeth and smile before you even start treatment. Computer images of your teeth and gums can be shaped, replaced, added or lightened, resulting in your new smile. It is exciting to actually see your treatment goal.
The Isolite™ Dental Isolation System
This multi-function unit’s most important feature is suction that removes droplets and aerosols from the air during treatment. Additionally, its flexible mouthpiece provides an increased level of dental isolation and includes a light for improved illumination of the inside of your mouth. For comfort, there is a built-in bite block to assist you in keeping your mouth open. Isolite was designed to make your treatment quicker and easier, not only eliminating multiple hand instruments previously used by dentists and dental assistants but also shortening your time in the chair and in our office.
We are thrilled to introduce Biolase technology to our patients. This soft tissue laser provides safe and effective treatment that makes treatment easier and far more comfortable, with faster recovery times. Many conditions such as periodontal (gum) disease, herpetic/aphthous ulcers, root desensitizing, and TMJ inflammation can now be addressed with laser treatment. In keeping with our green dentistry approach, this treatment also reduces medical waste.
Oral Cancer –
Minimize Your Risk
It’s an often unknown statistic that oral cancer causes one American death every hour. For 40 years, this mortality rate hasn’t changed. But it’s not all bad news. Early detection means a 90% cure rate for oral cancer. That’s why we conduct a visual screening for oral cancer at every six-month checkup and cleaning. If the hygienist or doctor sees anything that gives them cause for concern, they’ll refer you to an oral surgeon. This screening could literally save your life!
The Cleanest Your
Teeth Can Be
We use a Piezo Scaler™ to aid in removing deposits of plaque and calculus (tartar) from your teeth, especially under the gumline and even in deep pockets, in the case of gum disease treatments. This hand tool uses high-frequency vibrations to enable us to remove deposits on your teeth faster than with regular scaling instruments. Your teeth have never felt so clean! As a bonus, most patients report less discomfort with the Piezo Scaler.
Did you know that 5 million teeth are knocked out each year in the United States alone? Many sports can be dangerous without the proper protection. The one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in stores just don’t fit very well. Custom-made sports mouthguards fit well, protect well, and can be worn for any sport.
Complete Care from
the Team You Know
Sometimes a tooth is too damaged for a regular filling and requires a root canal. Wisdom teeth typically require extraction because they do not grow in properly, and occasionally a troublesome tooth must be removed. In most cases, Dr. Taler, our oral surgeon is able to perform required oral surgery right here in our office, with the team you already know and trust.
The Complete Range of Sedation Dentistry Options
While we take great pride in being able to deliver painless injections, some patients are naturally anxious at even the thought of a needle. If this sounds like you, we offer sedation dentistry that may help. One hour before your visit you take a pill that we dispense to you. You reach a level of sedation that allows you to respond to questions but relax through your entire visit. This is also ideal for those who have a busy schedule and want to get all their treatment done in one visit. Advanced Family Dentistry is one of the few general practices qualified to administer not only oral sedation, but also IV sedation (general anesthesia) on site in our office. With some cases, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas). We want you to feel comfortably relaxed throughout treatment.
The dentist works hand-in-hand with patients to create a bond of teamwork. The amazing intra-oral camera is a miniature video camera that displays a closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision. You’ll love how this works!
Traditional dental X-rays have been “good enough,” but digital X-rays provide clearer and much more accurate pictures of what’s going on inside a patient’s mouth. This makes it easier for the doctor to diagnose issues. Leaks or breaks in fillings that used to go unnoticed, often leading to root canals, can now be found and treated before major damage is done. We can also view your entire mouth in one shot, including the upper and lower jaws, with panoramic digital images.
