Our Services

Whatever You Need, We’re Here to Help

As a practice dedicated to the Modesto community, we believe that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We want to help you keep your mouth and teeth healthy and beautiful for life. By teaching you about your specific dental health, and giving you the knowledge to take control of it, we’ll help you achieve an amazing smile.

When it comes to your oral health, no problem is too big or too small.

Our office is warm and inviting, and we do our best to make your appointment as comfortable as possible. We maintain a positive, safe, encouraging atmosphere, where our focus is on you. If there’s ever anything you need, just ask!


Your smile is one of your most important features. Dentistry is continually evolving, and with a variety of advanced treatment options, achieving a beautiful, healthy, aesthetic smile is made easy for patients of all ages.


When your dental health is at risk, we will do everything we can to make sure that you’re treated as soon as possible. While dental emergencies are rare, they can happen, and it’s important to know how to take care of your teeth no matter what. 

General Dentistry

It is crucial for you and your loved ones to visit your general dentist on a regular basis. When you visit your dentist for routine examinations and cleanings, our dental team can catch early signs of decay or even prevent decay from ever occurring.

IMPLANT Dentistry

Dental implants provide a very real and cosmetic solution when a tooth is missing or is beyond saving. Instead of dentures, you can have teeth you won’t have to take out at night, can chew all foods with, and are absolutely natural looking.

I’ve been going to Dr. Filbrun’s every 6 months, for over 10 years now, and I have always had a great experience every visit. Jeanette is very kind and does an excellent job keeping my teeth detailed clean. Dr. Filbrun is always there when you need him, always with a kind smile. The staff are all kind including Melinda, Michelle, Helen, and Courtney. I recommend this office to my friends and family in need of an honest dentist - they’re great! 🙂

I have spent most life hiding from the dentist. The staff and Dr Filbrum are the most friendly and professional people. I have had several root canals and crowns done here.. my wife as well is a client. The work is amazing, quick and efficient. They came highly recommended to me, and I will only recommend them to my family and friends. The best!!!

Always a great visit. I recently switched to this new dentist about one year ago when mine was closed due to Covid. I’m glad I made the switch, as there was a massive amount of tartar buildup below my gumline that just wasn’t being cleaned properly. Each cleaning it’s getting better and better and my gums are no longer bleeding and just as a whole a healthier set of teeth. Very happy and recommend to any others
