Dr. John Graeber

Gentleness born of experience...


“I had several bad experiences with dentists when I was a child. So I take as many classes as I can to make coming to see me a pleasure, not a pain. With my training in state-of-the-art dental techniques and 35 years of experience, I’m proud to offer my patients Soft Touch Dentistry — no needles, no drills, virtually no pain.”

Sharing knowledge benefits my profession “The dental industry only grows and advances when dentists, not unlike myself, develop more gentle techniques and share that knowledge with others in the field. Writing for the professional journals, teaching practicing dentists, and speaking at professional meetings are my ways of  helping my patients achieve more beautiful smiles and more gentle techniques all over the world.”

Continuing Education:

More than 4,000 hours completed Advanced technology for a softer touch “If there’s something out there that will help my patients have a more enjoyable visit, I want to know about it, and I want to know about it first! For example, I was the first dentist in the U.S. for no-drill, no-needle fillings, which is less invasive and doesn’t damage the teeth.  I am one of the first dentists in the U.S. to offer laser dentistry .”
