Be aware that our protocols have changed because of this pandemic. The following is a summary of some of these changes:
You will receive a health screening for Covid-19 before your appointment by phone and again when you arrive to your appointment.
It is required to update your information and health history before your appointment, which is best to complete on our website.
When you arrive for your appointment remain in your vehicle and call the office, 307-234-6033. We will give you instructions to either stay in your vehicle or to come into the waiting area.
Please do not bring additional family members or companions. Only those patients requiring assistance (children, special needs, elderly) will be allowed inside and they will be screened also.
Ultimately, your health and dental care are our highest concerns and we will strive to give you the best of both. Thank you for being our patient. We value trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Meet the Team
We Love Our Team and So Will You!
Our clinic can help you with your dental needs. Below are some brief explanations of a few common procedures. Please call for any questions regarding treatment.
Exams & Cleanings
Regular exams and cleanings are necessary for your dental care providers to evaluate the condition of your entire mouth, which includes oral cancer screenings. Teeth cleanings can help prevent and maintain periodontal disease.
Filllings are one way to fix cavities to restore health, function and aesthetics to your smile.
A dental crown can help restore the shape and function of a tooth when too much structure is gone to place a filling. They can also be placed on front teeth to help enhance your smile.
Root canals (endodontics) are often a straightforward treatment used to relieve dental pain and save teeth. When the pulp inside your tooth becomes compromised or infected, root canals can clean out this infection.
We provide dental care for the entire family! We see children of all ages and can complete their exams, cleanings and basic treatment needs.
Brightening your smile can be an easy and safe procedure in office or at home. Multiple options are available to discuss whiten your teeth. Schedule an appointment to see which is best for you.
Sometimes difficulty sleeping can be caused by snoring, an obstructed airway or sleep apnea. Oral appliances can help you overcome your obstacles to get a restful night's sleep again.
Misaligned teeth can make it more difficult to clean your teeth and cause teeth to wear prematurely. Enhance your smile with straight teeth and improve the health of your teeth and gums at the same time with clear aligners. Schedule a free Invisalign consultation today!
Feeling anxious about your dental appointment? Talk to us about using nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. It's a safe and effective way to relax during your procedure.
I have been a patient of Dr Sutherland since he first started practicing in Casper and I've always had a positive experience. From Sherry at the front desk to the folks who clean your teeth, everyone is very professional.
This week, for the first time, Dr Novotny and Gina, her dental assistant, worked on me and they were terrific.
I highly recommend this office.
