Our 4 children have all had their retainers and braces done by Dr. DeLoach and we could not have been happier with the results. We have been very happy with how we have been treated by his staff and feel very blessed to have a great dentist like Dr. DeLoach in our community.~ J.D. Delta, Utah

We are truly lucky to have such a wonderful dentist and his family in our community. You can tell Dr. DeLoach loves what he does and really cares about people. He has been a great dentist and good example to my boys while coaching them in football.~ K.S. Delta, Utah
- Dr. DeLoach did the braces on my children over the past 12 years and I have been very happy with the results. He is always available for any emergencies that arise and is very good at getting back to us quickly. We are glad he is a part of our community and I would feel confident about telling everyone to have Dr. DeLoach as their dentist.~ J.N. Delta, Utah
- I have known Dr. DeLoach for almost 30 years and he has also been my dentist for that period of time. He is a good man with a good heart and I can recommend him as a dentist to everyone. He is very caring and detailed oriented and committed to his family and patients. He has performed very involved dental implant surgery on my mouth and I have had no problems with it going on 20 years now. Thank you Dr. DeLoach and I can confidently recommend him to anyone looking for a new dentist.~ R.T. Salt Lake City, Utah
- My family and I have been patients of Dr. DeLoach’s since 2002 and we love him! He has done braces on 3 of my children, pulled their wisdom teeth and always been a very gentle dentist. We are very glad to have a man like Dr. DeLoach as our dentist and also in our community.~ D.V. Delta, Utah
- Dr. DeLoach and his staff are amazing. He is very patient and has a good way with people. He knows how to make you feel relaxed and does very good with kids. His staff is the best I have ever been around with children. His girls have been working at that office for 20 years and are very good at what they do. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to family, friends or people new to the area.~ K.N. Delta, Utah
- We live on the other side of the county and make the trip to Delta to see Dr. Dennis DeLoach as our dentist. He has saved us countless trips up north to see specialists. It is nice to be able to go to the dental office and get all the dentistry you need in one office. My wife and I have had dental implants, root canals and teeth pulled by Dr. DeLoach when other dentists in our area always sent us to see other dentists to get it done. We also think Dr. DeLoach and his office girls are extremely friendly and helpful.~ M.L. Fillmore, Utah
- I was referred to a specialist clinic in Salt Lake and was shocked at the cost of the treatment they recommended. I needed several dental implants, some teeth pulled, a bridge and a lower plate. I was referred to Dr. DeLoach by a friend at work and went to get a second opinion. His office is very nice and his office help was very friendly and knowledgable. He was able to do all of the work for about half of the estimate I got from the other implant clinic in Salt Lake City. I had this work done in 2004 and have been back every 6 months since then. I am very happy with the results of my dental work.~ C.D. Delta, Utah
- My whole family has been patients at Delta Dental Center since 1990 and we love Dr. DeLoach. He gives a lot to our community through service and has a great family. We did not know he did braces and we took our oldest son to the orthodontist for an evaluation. He recommended we pull four of his permanent teeth to make room for his bite. We mentioned this to a friend of ours at church and they recommended we ask Dr. DeLoach his advice on that because he has done orthodontics for a long time. He told us there were many options and not pulling my son’s teeth was an option. Long story short, Dr. DeLoach has done braces on both of my sons and one of my daughters and we could not be happier with the results.~ L.D. Delta, Utah
- My family has been patients of Dr. DeLoach for a long time. He has always been very gentle and caring about us and the many friends we know of that also go to him. He has been a pillar in our community and given tremendously of his time in serving our young people in many capacities and as a football coach at our high school for many years. We are grateful that he can do all of the work that my family has needed over the years (wisdom teeth out for missions, root canals and dental implant surgery). Dr. DeLoach has a great family and they have been a real asset to Millard County.~ D.N. Delta, Utah
- I love Dr. DeLoach and he is a great dentist. He helped me when I needed help and couldn’t afford dental work. I have always had soft teeth and my parents both had dentures when they were young. I was embarrassed to smile because of my teeth and went to Dr. DeLoach because I was in pain and he helped me. He worked with me and now I have a beautiful smile and no pain. I didn’t know how bad of pain I had until I had the teeth out and my new dentures in. I have told lots of people of how nice Dr. DeLoach was to me and what a great dentist he is.~ T.M. Delta, Utah
- Dr. Dennis DeLoach is a wonderful man and an even better dentist. He has a gentle, kind way with people. He gives the best shots I have ever had and really seems to love what he does. He has lots of very good girls that work with him and they have been there a long time. I have told my family, friends and neighbors about him over the years and have heard nothing but good reports back on how they were treated in his office. I don’t really like going to the dentist, but I love Dr. DeLoach!~ K.N. Delta, Utah
- I have been a patient of Dr. DeLoach’s since 1987 in Salt Lake City. He has been a personal friend to me and my family and has been our family dentist for 26 years. We have continued to drive the four hour round trip to Delta for our dental work and love Dr. DeLoach. He is very good at what he does and is very gentle. He has rebuilt my mouth with implants and bridges and done the same for my wife, as well. I think the world of Dr. DeLoach and have felt comfortable in referring many family and friends over the years. Good luck Dr. DeLoach.~ A.Z. Salt Lake City, Utah
- + Cleanings & Prevention
A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
- + Cosmetic Dentistry
In the past decade there has been a dramatic interest in cosmetic dentistry. We all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence. Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we are able to improve our teeth and smiles with quick, painless and surprisingly affordable treatments.
Cosmetic dental treatments can:
• Change the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth.
• Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.
• Improve or correct bites.
• Lighten or brighten the color of teeth.
• Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth.
• Replace missing teeth.
• Replace old, unattractive dental treatments.
- + Periodontal Disease
The word periodontal means “around the tooth”. Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone that support the teeth. Plaque is a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva. If plaque is not removed, it turns into calculus (tartar). When plaque and calculus are not removed, they begin to destroy the gums and bone. Periodontal disease is characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums.
Four out of five people have periodontal disease and don’t know it! Most people are not aware of it because the disease is usually painless in the early stages.
Not only is it the number one reason for tooth loss, research suggests that there may be a link between periodontal disease and other diseases such as, stroke, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and increased risk during pregnancy. Researchers are determining if inflammation and bacteria associated with periodontal disease affects these systemic diseases and conditions. Smoking also increases the risk of periodontal disease.
Good oral hygiene, a balanced diet, and regular dental visits can help reduce your risk of developing periodontal disease.
- + Restorations
It’s great news that the incidence of tooth decay has significantly diminished over the years due to the use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness. However, teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage and sometimes need to be restored back to health. Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function.
Should your teeth ever require a restorative treatment, you can rest assured knowing we will always discuss with you the available options, and recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment. Providing you with excellent care is our number one priority when creating your beautiful smile.
- + Orthodontics
Orthodontics is one of many dental specialties. The word “orthodontics” is derived from the Greek words orthos, meaning proper or straight and odons meaning teeth. Orthodontics is specifically concerned with diagnosing and treating tooth misalignment and irregularity in the jaw area. Initially, orthodontic treatments were geared toward the treatment of teens and pre-teens, but these days around 30 percent of orthodontic patients are adults.
There are many advantages to well-aligned teeth, including easier cleaning, better oral hygiene, clearer speech and a more pleasant smile. Though orthodontic treatment can be effective at any age, the American Dental Association suggests that an orthodontic assessment should be performed around the age of seven. The earlier orthodontic treatment begins, the more quickly the problem can be successfully resolved.
- + Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are specialists with advanced training and expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of various head and neck conditions and injuries. After four years of dental school, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon completes four to six years of additional formal training in treating the craniomaxillofacial complex. This specialty is one of 9 dental specialties recognized internationally and by the American Dental Association (ADA).
An oral and maxillofacial surgeon can diagnose and treat a wide variety conditions. The following are just some of the many conditions, treatments and procedures oral and maxillofacial surgeon deal with on a daily basis:

- + Endodontics
Endodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that deals with the complex structures found inside the teeth. The Greek word “Endodontics” literally means “inside the tooth” and relates to the tooth pulp, tissues, nerves, and arterioles. Endodontists receive additional dental training after completing dental school to enable them to perform both complex and simple procedures, including root canal therapy.
Historically, a tooth with a diseased nerve would be removed immediately, but endodontists are now able to save the natural tooth in most cases. Generally, extracting the inner tooth structures, then sealing the resulting gap with a crown restores health and functionality to damaged teeth.
Signs and symptoms of endodontic problems:
• Inflammation and tenderness in the gums.
• Teeth that are sensitive to hot and cold foods.
• Tenderness when chewing and biting.
• Tooth discoloration.
• Unexplained pain in the nearby lymph nodes.
- + Sedation Dentistry
A significant number of Americans do not visit the dentist for regular checkups because they are too fearful or suffer from dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry offers an excellent way to provide a safe, anxiety-free, dental experience to those who are afraid of the dentist.
Sedation dentistry is often mistakenly thought to induce sleep. In fact, most sedatives allow the patient to stay awake during the procedure. Sleepiness is a side effect of some medications, but nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and IV sedation only work to calm anxiety throughout the dental visit.
Sedation dentistry is popular because most sedatives can be taken by mouth, meaning no injections, no anxiety and no pain. Some sedatives work so effectively that even the smells and details of the procedure cannot be recalled afterwards. Safety and compliance are two important aspects of treatments, so sedation dentistry offers both the individual and the dentist the best alternative.
Whatever the form of sedative, it is essential to be accompanied by a caregiver. Sometimes, sedatives are provided the night before the dental visit, which means that driving to or from the appointment is not advisable.
Here are some advantages associated with sedation dentistry:
• Anxiety is alleviated.
• Few side effects.
• More can be accomplished during each visit.
• No needles.
• No pain.
• Perfectly safe.
• Procedures seem to take less time.
- + Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies are quite frightening and often painful. Prompt treatment is almost always required to alleviate pain and to ensure the teeth have the best possible chance of survival.
Sometimes, teeth become fractured by trauma, grinding, or biting on hard objects. In other cases, fillings, crowns, and other restorative devices can be damaged or fall out of the mouth completely. If there is severe pain, it is essential to contact our office immediately. The pain caused by dental emergencies almost always gets worse without treatment, and dental issues can seriously jeopardize physical health.
