Dr. Tuinstra and his team know that a confident, appealing smile is just as important as a healthy one. Our treatments use natural-looking, body-safe materials that are completely amalgam-free. If you need a crown, filling, or any type of restoration, we take the time to make it look natural and fit seamlessly within your smile.

Patient-Centered Dentistry for the Whole Family

Dr. Tuinstra and his team are committed to providing the best dental care we possibly can for you and your loved ones. Our office is equipped with a variety of advanced tools and technology. We are constantly continuing our education, taking in new information, discoveries, and techniques, and looking for ways to apply it to our treatments.

With advanced tools like dental lasers, treatment can be faster, more precise, and more comfortable for you. Kids especially benefit from laser dentistry, which is gentler than standard tools and makes the process easier for them. With digital x-rays and digital impressions, Dr. Tuinstra can get a clearer picture of your oral health for more accurate diagnosis and care. Same-day crowns also make treatment options faster, more affordable, and more convenient for you.

We know how life-changing the right treatment can be. That’s why we take the time to learn more about you, your needs, and your goals before we build a plan. We treat everyone like family, committed to being honest and communicating clearly whenever we recommend care. You’ll feel more confident in your treatment when you experience our team’s dedication firsthand.

COVID-19 Protocols - Updated August 2021

The team at High Country Family Dentistry is dedicated to offering our patients the safe and essential dental care they deserve! We are continually monitoring the status of Covid-19 transmission at the local and state levels. We will monitor any recommendations from the CDC and city of Flagstaff. 

You will still receive the same great service from our dedicated team! The following are some updates for our patients:

- Our waiting room is open to all of our patients. We do our best to accommodate social distancing. We also offer a remote check in process for patients who would prefer to come directly back for their appointments. If you would prefer to wait in your car for your appointment, please call the office at (928)779-3666. A member of the team will bring you from your car immediately back.

- The use of the Solea Dental Laser for many procedures. The laser sterilizes any surface it touches and reduces aerosols 99.9% compared to traditional drills.

- We have fantastic technology in the office that affords us the ability to condense the number of visits a patient may need. We are able to efficiently schedule multiple procedures into one visit to limit the number of visits a patient needs to our office.

- Increased cleaning and disinfecting protocols around the office in addition to our already high standards for infection control.

- Increased patient and staff screening. Our team has a 100% vaccination rate.
