Dr. Hinkle wants to keep his patients smiling for a lifetime through top-quality general dentistry.
“When I was in elementary school, I broke my front two teeth. The dentist I went to put large silver caps on my front two teeth. It was just awful. The whole situation made me realize to treat others the way you want to be treated, and I never want my patients to go through that same experience I had to go through.”
Dr. Mike Hinkle of Utica Dental believes in always treating his patients how he wants to be treated. He does this by never skimping on the comforts and never putting anything in your mouth that he wouldn't put in his own.
The team at Utica Dental can't wait to help you start smiling for life with exceptional general dentistry services!
Our hygiene visits are very unique. For new patients, our Tulsa, OK dental office offers a LumiSmile consultation at no charge. For existing patients, Dr. Hinkle and our team begin every hygiene appointment with a thorough analysis of your smile. This includes a complete Velscope oral cancer screening, and digital x-rays.
To remove the layer of hard tartar and calculus bacteria from below the gum line, scaling and root planing is required. During the process, Dr. Hinkle goes deep below the gum line with high-tech scaling instruments to remove bacterial growth around the tooth.
All silver-colored fillings or dental amalgams are comprised of approximately 50% mercury (source). Dr. Hinkle understands the harmful effects of dental mercury amalgam fillings to patient health and the environment.
As a mercury-free dentist, he limits and prevents mercury exposure by safely removing existing silver fillings and replacing them with non-mercury alternatives.
"#1 Dentist in T-town! Dr. Hinkle has been my dentist for 13 years. He is friendly and knowledgeable. His staff does a great job of making you feel comfortable. His office is clean. I would not trust my teeth to anyone else!"
