Achieve Superior Results Backed by Advanced Technology and Talent

Rutledge Dental is committed to your comfort, safety, and satisfaction. Our team strives to stay on the cutting edge of technology, ensuring we keep up with the latest techniques and dental equipment on the market. Dr. Rutledge takes highly defined images with an intraoral camera and displays them on a monitor as he explains his findings to you. These images, along with panoramic digital x-rays and CBCT scans, are exceptionally helpful as diagnostic and treatment planning tools.

Highly Advanced Implant Placement and Restoration Services

He offers Teeth In A Day®, which is the latest innovation in dental implants, delivering the implant-supported fixed teeth on the same day as the dental implant placement. Our practice also provides the All-on-4® implant system that can help you replace a full arch using fewer implants.

Invisalign for A Perfectly Straight Smile

Our practice is an Invisalign platinum provider. Our well-trained dental team can revive your oral health and appeal by straightening your bite. Dr. Rutledge chooses Invisalign for more than one reason. In addition to its excellent results, the aligners are invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth discreetly. The straightening process is considerably fast, taking between six and eighteen months on average. Invisalign clear braces are removable so that it won’t interrupt your preferred lifestyle.

Renew Your Smile with CEREC Same-Day Crowns

For your convenience and to accommodate your busy schedule, our practice uses a CEREC machine. This machine uses 3D scans to produce your new crown on the same day, without the need for dental molds or sending impressions to the lab.

Quality, Comprehensive Dentistry is Waiting for You!

At Rutledge Dental, our mission is to help you reach your optimal oral health and most appealing smile. If you reside in Oro Valley, Marana, Tucson, AZ, or the surrounding communities, we invite you to visit us to experience our quality work, relaxing atmosphere, and caring staff.
