There is a practice in Old Montgomery that takes a different approach to dentistry. Endres Gateway Dentistry is a “General dentistry practice in a boutique, concierge setting that focuses on family, cosmetic, comprehensive and sleep/snoring dentistry, wellness and facial esthetics,” says Eleanor Endres, DMD-Owner and Dentist at Endres Gateway Dentistry.
The practice located in Olde Montgomery, immediately off of Ronald Reagan Highway, has been opened since August of 2007. With the help of six employees and a therapy dog named Finn, Endres Gateway Dentistry offers a wide variety of services. The name of the practice comes from the fact that they are in the Gateway Building of Montogomery. “A Gateway has an obvious analogy to the mouth,” Endres says. “Our motto is: ‘Oral Health is the gateway to healthy living.’”
There is a wide variety of services offered through the practice. They offer the traditional dental services, including: fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, hybrid dentures, implants, cleanings, gum treatment, braces, veneers, teeth whitening, sedation and more.
They also offer unique services like TMJ Treatments, which include: guards, therapy, massage, trigger point injections and E-stim. There are Facial Esthetic Services: Botox fillers for wrinkles, lips, PRP for dark circles under eyes, Kybella for dissolving fat under the chin, threading to minimize facial scarring, heavy wrinkles and sagging skin, and jaw line enhancement. They also provide snoring appliances and Sleep Apnea appliances.
Endres Gateway Dentistry is different from other practices, Endres says, because they have “a boutique environment, large variety of services, ability to treat TMD, comprehensive care — which means we help educate our patients on how the health of their mouth relates to their whole health — and high level of customer service with a gentle touch,” she explains. “We have a therapy dog, Finn, for our patients with dental anxiety. He is a two-year-old Bernedoodle and cute as can be.
According to Endres, the vision of the practice is “To always be offering the latest and most advanced dental and facial esthetic treatments through evidence-based care,” Endres
Endres loves the field that she is in and is passionate about it. “I really love dentistry and facial esthetics,” she says. “I have always enjoyed a job where I work with my hands, creating a product through an artistic eye that is useful to people.”
Keeping up with industry is also important to Endres, as she and her team often adapt the practice with new technology, techniques and services. “We want to meet the needs of our patients as the science of dental medicine and facial esthetics advances,” she says.
And while she loves the science and artistry of her job, Endres says it’s the people she enjoys the most. “My team and my parents that I see every day allow me the privilege to impact their lives in positive ways,” Endres says. “I love helping people achieve their goals, both personally and professionally.”
