Our Philosophy


We resolve to treat our patients like we would want to be treated. Our dental office in Irvine, California, is designed to resound openness with big windows in the treatment rooms and to mesh with our beliefs to educate and express all options of solving your individual dental needs.

We research and purchase the best quality materials and use the best labs we can find. Our dentist and dental team stay current with the latest innovations and techniques in dentistry by attending dental seminars on a regular basis and staying abreast with the best dental journals and texts.

We honestly believe implants are the future of dentistry and we’ve seen this field grow immensely in the last two decades. The huge growth of resin technology (white fillings) and CAD-CAM (computer-generated restorations) has made this field exciting.

Preventive care continues to be the main focus of care in our office for all the reasons it should: it works!

Our auxiliaries are highly educated and very experienced and always will be, because it does make a difference. Communication lines are always open between doctor and staff and all patients at Dr. Russell Cannon’s office.
