Good news! We are scheduled to reopen on Monday, May 4th. Please be patient, as our team is at limited capacity and navigating this unprecedented situation. As of now, we are still under the COVID-19 mandatory regulations. We are looking forward to seeing you all in our office and getting back to doing what we love: providing excellent dental care.
To our patient family,
Patient and team health and safety has always been taken very seriously at our dental practice. Please know that we are vigilantly monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation and plan to operate on a normal schedule once we reopen on May 4th for now, but these hours could change based on how this situation progresses within our community.
In addition to the health and safety measures we employed in our office previously, we are encouraging our employees to stay home if they are not feeling well or have been possibly exposed to someone who is ill. We are asking our patients to do the same and please call to reschedule your appointment if you or a family member have any flu- or cold-like symptoms (i.e. fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, etc.) or have traveled out of the country within the past 30 days.
We will continue to use the CDC- and OSHA-mandated cleaning and disinfection protocols in our treatment areas, including utilizing a bactericidal, viricidal, fungicidal and tuberculocidal disinfectant that will kill the coronavirus. As an extra precaution to keep our patients and team protected, we will have hand sanitizer for you to use when you first come into our office, and we will provide a pre-procedural rinse. We have also removed toys and magazines from our waiting rooms to help prevent cross contamination.
We must also limit family members in our waiting room and in our treatment areas, so please wait in your car when you arrive at our office for your appointment. We ask that all patients provide us with a cell phone number so that we can update you about your appointment by phone while you wait in your car prior to being called into our office.
For future updates, we encourage you to check out our Facebook page and website for the most current information. The health and safety of our patients and our team is of utmost importance. We greatly appreciate your help and understanding with these temporary measures to combat the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

We look forward to seeing you very soon and hope that you and your family are safe and healthy.
With the help of cosmetic dentistry, you have the option to transform your smile into one that you love and are proud to show off. While a renewed smile can boost your self confidence and encourage you to flash a big grin more often, having a beautiful smile is more beneficial to you than you may have originally thought. Studies have shown that your smile is the first thing others notice about you, making it the basis of the first impression you give off. Your smile can say a lot about you, including the way you take care of yourself, your level of success, and how friendly you appear. Additionally, it has been proven that people with great-looking smiles tend to be more successful than those with less visually appealing teeth. A good smile says power and skill in the workplace, and the smile owner is more likely to land “the job” and be promoted than someone with just a mediocre mouth. The same is true for your personal life. An attractive smile has been linked to finding love, a happier marriage, and a fulfilling family life. So, what are you waiting for? At Grinnell Street Dental, we offer countless cosmetic dentistry procedures, including porcelain veneers, dental implants, metal-free fillings, bridges, bonding, Invisalign, and teeth whitening. You have the power and the option to get the smile of your dreams in just one smile makeover procedure. Call our dental office in Sheridan, Wyoming, at (307) 672-7567 for more information or to schedule your appointment.
TMJ, short for temporomandibular joints, is a nickname for the small joints in front of each of your ears that attach your lower jaw to your skull. When working properly, these joints allow you to perform functions like opening and closing your mouth, chewing, speaking, and swallowing. The functions of these joints have a large impact on your quality of life, but, unfortunately, TMJ disorder is a very common condition among adults. Headaches, migraines, earaches, and irritating conditions, such as a popping jaw, usually accompany TMJ disorder. If you have any of these symptoms, it’s possible that you are one of the millions of Americans suffering from TMJ disorder. The dentists at Grinnell Street Dental are here to help you find relief through neuromuscular dentistry. The best way to define neuromuscular dentistry is by looking at its name. Neuro relates to nerves, while muscular relates to function of the muscles. Neuromuscular dentistry is based on bringing these two aspects of the human body together with oral structures: teeth and gums. The goal of neuromuscular dentistry is to place your jaw into its optimal position for overall harmony of muscles, nerves, teeth, gums, and oral function as a whole. This will give you relief from the TMJ pain you experience. We encourage you to call our dental office in Sheridan, Wyoming, at (307) 672-7567 to schedule consultation appointment.

The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to give you a complete, beautiful, natural-looking smile, and we take that task very seriously at Grinnell Street Dental. A large portion of cosmetic dentistry isn’t actually cosmetic, believe it or not. Often, restorative dental procedures are all you need to get a great-looking grin that you are proud to show off. Missing teeth make a smile unattractive, but they also can cause problems with the functionality of your mouth. You may have problems with chewing and speaking, and your remaining teeth may shift to compensate for the missing teeth. If you have one or more missing teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to bridge the gap between your teeth. A bridge is a custom device that is anchored to neighboring teeth to replace one or more missing teeth. Before a bridge can be placed, the teeth on either side of the missing one are prepared as crowns to serve as abutments to hold the prosthetic tooth in place. Crowns and bridges are usually fabricated using high-quality materials, such as semiprecious or precious metals, porcelain, or a fused combination of the two. To ensure the functionality and natural appearance of your smile makeover, we will consider several factors of your bite, natural tooth structure, and physical appearance when designing your dental bridge. A dental bridge is completely secured, so you never have to worry about your replacement teeth becoming loose or misaligned. A dental bridge can last for at least 8 years with proper care and hygiene. We recommend dental bridges for patients looking to renew their smile in an ultra-conservative way. Call our dental office in Sheridan, Wyoming, at (307) 672-7567 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
Cosmetic dentistry is really amazing. With today’s modern technology, you can get a brand new, beautiful smile without any surgery in just one day. We offer a number of cosmetic dental procedures at Grinnell Street Dental, but there is one procedure that seems to be a great fit for people with all kinds of cosmetic dental needs. This procedure is porcelain veneers, and it is often referred to as the smile makeover procedure. Porcelain veneers are the most conservative esthetic restorations available in dentistry today. If you have stained or discolored, gapped, unevenly spaced, short or stubby, or crooked teeth, porcelain veneers could give you the smile you have been dreaming of. Veneers are thin, durable shells made from quality porcelain that adhere directly to your front teeth. A thin layer of your tooth enamel will be removed to allow your veneers to be smooth and look natural. Once placed, your veneers will immediately give you a brand new, fantastic smile. Porcelain veneers are just as strong as natural teeth, and can last up to 20 years with proper care and hygiene. Additionally, they are stain resistant and won’t discolor, so you never have to worry about whitening your new smile. Porcelain veneers are called the smile makeover for a reason. If you think veneers may be the answer to your smile desires, we invite you to contact Grinnell Street Dental at (307) 672-7567 in Sheridan, Wyoming to schedule an appointment.
It’s a proven fact that women tend to smile more than men. In fact, some studies show that women smile up to 8 times more. While that number is more equal for men and women in similar careers, a Business Media Networks study shows that female grins greatly outnumber male smiles on social networking websites. Why are men so hesitant to flash a big grin? Several factors, such as culture and age, have to do with to how often someone smiles, but the difference between men and women is due to a psychological factor. Believe it or not, men don’t tend to notice when they are being observed throughout the day. Women notice all the time. Hard to believe, right? If the man in your life doesn’t smile as much as you would like, try to find out what’s holding him back. It’s possible that stress is to blame, but what if the problem is more appearance-based? Cosmetic dentistry may be the way to put a big smile on your guy’s face. We’re the Grinnell Street Dental dentists, and we have been giving people beautiful smiles with the help of cosmetic dentistry for years. We offer a multitude of cosmetic dental procedures, ranging from teeth whitening, to porcelain veneers, to dental implants. Depending on his smile goals, we can touch-up or completely makeover his smile. If cosmetic dentistry is the way to go, we’d like to sit down at a consultation to discuss what your significant other wants to get out of his smile makeover. Call Grinnell Street Dental at (307) 672-7567 to make an appointment. Don’t let your guy’s smile hide out any longer!

Here at Grinnell Street Dental, we want to be your cosmetic dental care providers. We want to be here for you through every step of your smile makeover, from consultation to the final, beautiful result. First, however, it’s necessary for you to identify what you like and dislike about your smile. This quiz will help you decide.

Which adjective describes the shape of your front teeth? Nice and attractive, Pointy, Uneven, or Rough-edged
Which words describe the size of your teeth? Proportionate to my mouth/face, Too big, Too small, Too short, Too long

This quiz is all about how you feel when you look in the mirror, so there are no correct or incorrect answers. Don’t worry if you’re not happy with your answers, though. We offer the cosmetic dental procedures that can correct the things you want to change about your smile right here in our Sheridan, Wyoming office. Some of these procedures include:
White fillings and crowns
If you are ready to begin your transformation to get the beautiful smile you have always dreamed of, we encourage you to schedule a consultation appointment.

We look forward to hearing from you and embarking on the journey to your perfect smile together!
Have you ever noticed a bright smile, only to be distracted by black fillings in the person’s back teeth? Unfortunately, if you have traditional fillings, others have probably noticed them on you, as well. With advanced dental technology as available as it is, there is no reason for unsightly fillings to draw attention away from your smile. Traditional, amalgam fillings are a thing of the past at Grinnell Street Dental. We only use fillings and restorations made from natural composite resin and top-of-the-line porcelain. Cosmetically, replacing your dark, metal fillings with composite fillings is like giving new life to your smile. Composite fillings are tooth-colored, so they blend right in with your natural tooth structure. You will no longer have to worry about flashing a big, toothy grin because your restorations will be completely natural looking and unnoticeable. There may be another reason to consider replacing your old-fashioned fillings, as well. If you had fillings placed when you were younger, it is likely that these amalgam fillings have started to deteriorate. These fillings are made from a combination of mercury, copper, zinc, silver, and a few other materials, and it has been debated that they are harmful to your health. If your fillings have deteriorated, it is possible that they have begun to leak, potentially causing further decay to the tooth underneath. Replacing your fillings is a simple procedure. We will remove what’s left of your amalgam filling, clean the area, and place the composite filling. These fillings are as durable as natural teeth, so you will not need to worry about the filling wearing down from the normal stress and pressure your teeth endure every day. If you’re ready to upgrade your old-fashioned fillings for a metal-free mouth, please call our office in Sheridan, Wyoming at (307) 672-7567.
If you had to guess the number one thing that people notice about you when first meeting you, what would you choose? It’s not your hair color or style, your clothing, or your body shape. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not your eyes. Believe it or not, it’s your smile! A bright, healthy-looking smile gives off a stellar first impression. It is proven that people who smile a lot are thought to exude confidence, and statistics show that people with great smiles are more likely to have a quality, high-paying job, as well as a satisfactory personal life. This is just one of the reasons we are dedicated to giving you a beautiful, healthy smile here at Grinnell Street Dental. We offer a variety of cosmetic procedures that can give you a new lease on a smile that has lost its luster. We have seen our patients fall in love with their smiles from all of the treatments we offer at our Sheridan, Wyoming office, but one procedure is requested more than any other: teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure out there, and it’s for good reason. Teeth whitening can take years off of your appearance, and it happens almost instantly. (more…)
If you’ve gone through life with crooked teeth, it’s time to treat yourself to a new image, a new smile, and a new sense of self-confidence. Imagine looking at yourself in the mirror each morning and loving what you see. With Invisalign clear braces, you can have the smile of your dreams:
Without metal braces
In less time than traditional braces
Without the hassle of a fixed appliance
Invisalign involves a custom system of clear acrylic aligners that slip into — and out of — your mouth. You can remove them to eat, clean your teeth, or for an important appointment. Traditional braces take about 2 years of treatment time, but with Invisalign, you could have your straighter, more beautiful smile in 9, 12, or 18 months. Invisalign is perfect for teens and adults, and it also works well for patients who used to wear braces, but whose teeth have moved out of place through the years.
Ready for the smile of your dreams? Call Grinnell Street Dental in Sheridan, Wyoming today at 307-672-7567 to schedule a smile makeover consultation. Dr. Donald, Dr. Cody, and Dr. Justin Coon clearly have the right solution – Invisalign!
