How does Dr. Schwam stay current with dental techniques and materials?
Dr. Schwam has taken over 350 hours of continuing education at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.

Why should I consider sleep apnea therapy?
Sleep apnea is more than just a problem with snoring. This condition can be very threatening to your overall health. We invite you to explore the risks associated with sleep apnea and find out more about what we can do about this problem by visiting our sleep apnea therapy page. If you find that you’re suffering from symptoms of sleep apnea, contact us for an appointment.
My front teeth are crooked, but I don’t want to wear braces. Can you help?
Depending on the degree of your problem, we may be able to place porcelain veneers to cover your crooked teeth problem. Sometimes called “instant orthodontics,” porcelain veneers can almost immediately enhance the look of your smile without the time required to make changes with braces. Porcelain veneers can help with a number of other cosmetic smile problems as well, so if you’re considering a smile makeover, contact us for more information.
Will you see my kids?
Yes. Our office will see your entire family, including your children, making it easy for you to find convenient family dental care. We generally recommend that you bring in your child around the age of three unless you have cause for concern prior to that. Contact us if you need more information about children’s dental care.
Do you accept referrals?
Absolutely! We appreciate your referrals and promise to extend the same comprehensive, caring service to your friends and coworkers that we give you every time you visit. Dr. Schwam also welcomes referrals from other dentists.
