Dr. Laurie Bloch-Johnson has been practicing for over 30 years creating more than just beautiful smiles; she has developed her practice using a totally different approach that one might not expect at a dentist’s office. Her first rule is that she only sees one patient at a time.
The initial visit takes about 90 minutes, and Dr. Laurie spends about 45 minutes with each of her patients. Investing that much time and detail here saves time and allows the patients to make sure that Dr. Laurie is the best possible fit. She discusses what the examination has shown, presents options and explains the next steps. Patients can see exactly what is going on in their mouths, and make an informed choice on how they want to proceed. The timeframe for the ideal treatment can be adjusted to fit the patient’s schedule and budget. Dr. Laurie offers this consultation as the best way to educate people about what is available to help them get a healthy smile that will last.
During the initial visit, there is an examination of the mouth, teeth, jaw joints (TMJ) and masticatory muscles. One of the many uses for the 42-inch television in each exam room is that, as a camera takes photos of the mouth, the patient can see exactly what Dr. Laurie sees with magnifying glasses.
Dr. Laurie’s Exceptional Dentistry is a full-service dental practice that includes full mouth reconstruction, dental implants, TMJ disorder, including treatment for snoring, treatment for migraines, headaches caused from bite problems, veneers and periodontal laser management.
State-of-the-art dental technology allows her practice to deliver a more accurate and detailed diagnosis. Some of the different types of technology include digital X-rays, intra-oral cameras, computerized bite analysis, and lasers for soft and hard tissue applications.
Dr. Laurie’s Exceptional Dentistry offers smile design, smile makeover, dental facelifts, instant orthodontics, porcelain veneers, crowns inlays and onlays, tooth bonding, tooth-colored fillings, porcelain fillings, teeth whitening and gum contouring. She has worked with her master dental ceramist for almost 20 years, and he is available for custom shading and discussing the process with clients.

In fact, she is one of the most senior instructors at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies where she teaches dentists from all over the world.
