Meet Our Experienced and Friendly Briarcliff Dental Care Staff

Dr. Arnett has been practicing dentistry since 2006. In 2009, Dr. Arnett started Briarcliff Dental Care. Opening Briarcliff Dental Care brought everything that Dr. Arnett wanted in his own full service, high tech, general dental practice.

Dr. Arnett focused on mixing technology with precise dentistry, while keeping prices affordable for his patients. Briarcliff Dental Care is a green/paperless, all digital office. Each operatory has its own large HDTV for you to view your digital x-rays and intra-oral images, which allow you and Dr. Arnett to be involved in your personalized comprehensive treatment plan.

Watching DIRECTV is an added bonus while receiving treatment. In addition to reducing anxiety, you may keep up on your favorite daytime shows on our ceiling! Dr. Arnett and his staff want the absolute best for their patients!

Our office has the newest model Cerec Omnicam. The Cerec Omnicam system makes it possible to receive a crown or Veneer in one appointment without any uncomfortable impressions or placing of a temporary crown. Dr. Arnett and his friendly staff want to build and maintain a long lasting relationship with you, as well as your family and friends!

Briarcliff Dental Care
“I unfortunately had to have a tooth filled, but the procedure ended up being really easy and completely pain free. With other dentists, there was always at least a little pain, but I was surprised that there was no pain at all with Dr. Arnett. Great friendly dentist and staff in a modern office with a TV for every chair. If you're interested in a better experience, Briarcliff Dental is the way to go.”
