Implants, Crowns and Bridges are all procedures that require the combined expertise of Dr. Katie Hicks and a certified dental laboratory. We are proud to say that for these cases, we partner with a laboratory here in Tucson, ensuring high-quality restorations created to restore the aesthetics and functions of our patients’ smiles.

When a patient is faced with the unfortunate loss of a tooth, Dr. Hicks can provide peace of mind in replacing missing teeth with implants. Implants are surgically placed in the jaw by our team of specialists and then restored in our office with crowns, bridges, or dentures to restore the patient’s occlusion. Implants are the most natural and long-term tooth replacement option available and have the added health benefit of bone preservation.
Fill in the Gap with a Bridge
When a patient is not a candidate for an implant, a bridge may be recommended. Bridges are permanent restorations used to replace a missing tooth, bonding an artificial tooth (the pontic) with crowns placed on the adjacent teeth(abutments). Bridges can also be placed on implants to restore areas missing multiple teeth.
We were recommended to Dr Hicks from our dentist in Oregon – they went to dental school together. We are so glad we found her, she makes going to the dentist fun! She is always on time, extra gentle and conservative in her treatments.
We also can’t forget her team! Being greeted by Larissa puts a smile on your face when you walk in, Jessica her assistant is so sweet and friendly and Angelica the hygienist is just the best!
Don’t go anywhere else in Tucson!
My family and I LOVE this office! From the time I walked in to the time I rescheduled for my next appointment, I knew I had made the right choice. Dr. Hicks and her entire staff made me feel super comfortable and welcome, and her hygienist Angelica did an awesome job with my cleaning!
I have interned at Katie’s office for 2 years now and every patient leaves happy. Katie is honestly so wonderful! She is so outgoing and very diligent in her work. Her personality really shines and she also does a great job clinically while keeping your best interests in mind. Something really great about her is that she is very conservative in practice, so you won’t be getting any treatment you don’t need! She is also amazing with kids as she has 3 of her own. She truly is the best dentist in Tucson!!
I’m the BIGGEST wimp when it come to dental work (traumatic past) but Katie is amazing! I had two fillings replaced today and no pain! Love her and her staff! Thank you!
Dr. Hicks and her entire staff are lovely! From the appointment making process, to the dental hygenist to Dr. Hicks herself, every experience is positive. This a quality and caring office.
The best dental office in Tucson hands down!
Had yet another great experience with Katie and her team. Took the whole family in, thats two four year olds and an eighth month monster. Their beautiful staff made it all seem easy and painless. Kids loved it and wanted go back the next day! Thx again, cant say enough.
