About Plancich Dental
About Our Practice
For the Plancich’s, dentistry runs in the family. Dr. Gregory Plancich of Plancich Dental in Tacoma, WA and his son, Dr. Bryce Plancich of Lakes Dentistry in Lakewood, WA offer family-friendly integrative dentistry — the most comprehensive approach to oral health care. Our treatments and exams consider oral health in relation to your overall health with a focus on prevention and education.
At Plancich Dental and Lakes Dentistry, we want you to have a pleasant experience. Our offices provide a comfortable space and our exceptional staff focuses on building strong relationships with our patients. Our ultimate goal is to provide you with the best dental care that will keep you smiling!
To ensure lasting and natural results, we’ve invested in the latest, most beneficial dentistry technology. Our digital x-ray system exposes you to 90% less radiation while our laser cavity detector, cancer detector, and curing systems mean faster, more thorough exams and procedures. We also use the dental operating microscope to improve the accuracy and efficiency of each dental procedure while preserving the integrity of tooth structure and gum tissue.
