Patients looking for a one-stop dental practice, need go no further than A & S Dental in Brandon. Dentist and owner Dr. Sara Cervantes, who began practicing 18 years ago, opened the office in 2004 offering residents a full range of dental services from cleanings and examinations to crowns and implants.

“Our mission is to provide the highest level of dental care to our patients,” said Cervantes, who adds that she wants to create a dental home for residents at her office. “We work hard to educate, listen to and understand our patients’ dental needs in a caring, honest and professional manner.”

Through her use of technology and state-of-the-art dental equipment, Cervantes is able to make sure patients are treated quickly and comfortably.

“We use digital x-rays, intra oral cameras to show patients the existing restorations that need attention and a Velscope for oral cancer screenings,” she said.

Each dental exam includes a thorough oral examination, a review of medical history and a check of gums and teeth.

Additional services include dental crowns and bridges, implants, restorations, veneers and laminates, complete and partial dentures, Invisalign and teeth whitening.

Along with her husband, Artan, Cervantes is an active member of the Brandon community and a parishioner at Nativity Catholic Church with a daughter attending Nativity Catholic School. She is also bilingual, which she believes has allowed her to treat patients from multiple backgrounds.

“We moved to Brandon because we knew the area was growing and felt it would be a good place to offer my services,” said Cervantes. “We create lifelong relationships with our patients and their families.”

A graduate of Boston University School of Dental Medicine and the University of Florida College of Dentistry, Cervantes is a member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the West Coast Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry.

The office sees patients of all ages and also accepts emergency walk-ins.

A & S Dental is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m.-6p.m., Wednesday by appointment only, Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. The office is located at 1532 Oakfield Dr. Ste. B in Brandon and can be reached at 430-0962.
