Dr. John Quinn was raised in Las Vegas and has always called Southern Nevada his home. Along with his dental practice, which combines state-of-the-art technology with a warm, comfortable and clean environment, Dr. Quinn proudly serves our country. He is a Captain in the Nevada Army National Guard, has been serving since 2008 and proudly demonstrates his patriotism, duty and honor in all aspects of his life.
Dr. Quinn brings these principles to his modern office that utilizes the latest, most advanced technology and techniques available to care for oral health. All procedures can be done in office including same-day CEREC crowns using digital scanning and computer-aided dental technology. This allows Dr. Quinn and his team to make very precise digital impressions and fit crowns in just one visit without the need for a temporary crown or a second appointment! Dr. Quinn and his team have advanced training in all areas of dentistry such as dental implants, oral surgery, molar root canals and orthodontics such as Invisalign and Clear Correct can also be performed in the office without the need for referral to a specialist. A CT machine for the head and neck is available to diagnose pathology and cancer. It is also used to plan for implant surgery 3- dimensionally which makes implant surgery a much simpler and safer procedure.
