"Dr. Bosher is the best dentist our family has ever been to! We are a family of 5 and we highly recommend Dr. Bosher and his fabulous support team. From the friendly ladies at the front desk, to the gentle, helpful dental techs and of course, Dr. B. I've always been stressed when I had to go to the dentist, but not any more. HIGHLY recommend if you are looking for a new dentist that will take time to explain what he recommends and why before you spend a bunch of money. Dr. Bosher also teaches and stays on top of the newest research, unlike previous dentists we've gone to."- A.K. / Google / Mar 04, 2016
"Dr. Bosher has been my dentist since 1995. I love him and his staff! You will not find higher levels of professionalism AND friendly demeanor anywhere. I have had two crowns, several fillings, one dry socket, and many cleanings and have always been extremely pleased with my experience and results. Dr. Bosher has all the latest tech to make your dental visit quick (same day crown!), efficient and enjoyable. Thank you to everyone there for your top-notch service!"- K.F. / Google / Jun 22, 2016
"Dr. Bosher is simply the best of the best! There is not enough room here to list the incredible things he has done for my family. When my small child had defective enamel and another dentist doubted his six-year molars could even be saved, Dr. Bosher implemented a "temporary" solution that has held for over seven years, and is likely to last until the teeth are old enough to be crowned. The same child was misdiagnosed by an orthodontist. Dr. Bosher procured us a second opinion that saved him years of painful, expensive, and unnecessary treatment. Another child broke a tooth in an accident and was told a crown was its only hope. Dr. Bosher saved the tooth with a difficult filling that other dentists would not attempt. And he has provided excellent care for me through several crowns, root canals, and other major dental work. His techology is state of the art, his knowledge is cutting edge, his staff are friendly and compassionate, and his technique is brilliant. As long as he is in practice, I will never go anywhere else."- C.S. / Citysearch / Nov 19, 2013
"I got the impressions - I got the impressions for my 2nd. crown implant. Nothing faster, more precise or more efficient than the CAD procedure they use and in a fraction of the time . My oral surgeon said the first implant by Dr. Bosher is BEAUTIFUL. Here goes my second! Dr. Bosher has incredible skill and knowledge with a fabulous staff. Always a great experience. I felt I had no help or hope until he became my dentist. My health condition is "complicated" and I was able to receive restoration afterall with Dr. Bosher's care. THANK YOU isn't enough but it's all I have."- W.E. / Insiderpages / Mar 18, 2014
What to Expect
Traditionally, a dental crown has required two office appointments involving numbing injections, and messy molds of the mouth. During the dentist visit, patients will receive a numbing anesthetic, and the tooth will be cleaned and prepared for restoration. During this process, with use of a drill, decayed material and other debris is removed; in some cases, a small amount of healthy tooth structure may also be removed to accommodate the crown. Because the E4D system is equipped to take digital impressions, no uncomfortable molds are needed. This is a great benefit for patients because dental impressions can be uncomfortable and taste bad. Instead, the digital impression of the tooth is then transferred to the on-site milling machine, where the new crown is created from a single block of color-matched porcelain. The final stage of this process is ensuring a proper fit and coloration of the crown. It will then be glazed and polished and bonded to the remaining two. Patients leave our office with a restored and balanced bite that looks and feels completely natural.
The cost of the E4D system varies, depending on the procedure being performed. The pricing of the procedure will be discussed in detail during the treatment consultation. Procedures that use our in-house CAD/CAM technology do not cost more because of the technology used. This is a great benefit to the patient. In addition, it provides a more thorough, efficient and comfortable dental visit.

E4D Systems FAQs
E4D vs Traditional Methods?
Most procedures performed via the E4D process will be completed much sooner than traditional procedures because of the advanced technology the E4D System provides. Most patients may also experience less pain and complications from the procedure.
Not all procedures will be performed under a single visit. However, most patients will experience same-day restoration procedures. The dentist will be able to determine whether the patient is fit for same-day procedures during a consultation exam.
Covered by Insurance?
Each dental insurance company’s coverage policy is different for each patient. Coverage will vary on particular restorative and cosmetic needs. Patients will work with our billing coordinator to contact their insurance provider so that a full understanding of their dental coverage can be explained. All out-of-pocket expenses will be discussed during the treatment consultation.
