Incredible service using advanced technology is the hallmark of Dr. Bakke.
He is known internationally for his “non-surgical dental face lifts”, a revolutionary procedure to return your face and smile to a relaxed, more youthful appearance in as little as two visits. “It’s amazing how much better the quality of life is for a person
who has experienced what the forefront of dentistry has to offer. By correctly aligning the bite and jaw with beautiful porcelain restorations, my patients gain a miraculous new smile and facial contour.”
