We take great pride in our wide-range of general, cosmetic and speciality dental offerings from pediatric dentistry to services like Invisalign, Cerec same day crowns and dental implants. To help ease anxiety, we also offer sedation dentistry.

Our Goal Is To Solve Problems.

Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry is not just about improving the look of your teeth. Replacing or repairing teeth is vital for your dental health and for preserving your other teeth. When you have empty spaces in your mouth, you can put stress on your natural teeth because there is not as much surface area for chewing.

TMJ + Myofascial Pain

MD causes significant pain, as the discs wear down and bone becomes exposed. Symptoms include soreness of the area around the joints, pain while chewing or talkin g, facial pain, a clicking of the joints and—in severe cases—dislocation of the jaw, which locks in an open mouth position. If you are suffering with these symptoms, you should see your dentist. The disorder needs to be differentiated from other causes of facial pain.

Sedation Dentistry

We use a number of effective techniques to make your dental experience a calm and relaxing one, and conscious sedation is a preferred alternative for those who are nervous about dental care or those who want to have multiple dental procedures accomplished in one visit. You don’t find this approach everywhere, because it requires special attention and equipment– it’s one of the things that makes Smile Center unique.

Oral Surgery

You might need oral surgery for a lot of reasons. Most common is removal of your wisdom teeth, but oral surgery can also be a part of treating temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems, replacing missing teeth, and repairing a facial injury. We have an oral surgeon on staff at our facility, so we can take care of you right here in our office!

Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry focuses on the oral health and development of infants and children through their adolescent years. Your dentist will ensure that your child’s teeth are developing properly  and will evaluate the need for any orthodontics.


Endodontics is another word for “root canal treatment.” If you have an infected tooth, and the infection has spread to the surrounding pulp or into the nerve, you need a root canal. A root canal is a procedure in which our dentist will remove the infected pulp, and the nerve if necessary. Our dentist will then seal the opening to prevent any future infection.


Fredericksburg Smile Center’s Dr. Joel Butterworth is proud to be the #1 Platinum Invisalign dentist in Fredericksburg, Virginia. For both teens and adults, clear aligners have changed the face of dentistry forever. 


Orthodontics is a division of dentistry focusing  on correcting the alignment of teeth. Misaligned teeth can lead to overbite, greater vulnerability to cavities and other oral health issues.

Cosmetic Dentistry

We know that a bright, white smile can make all the difference. Our services are tailored to work with your needs and your budget.

Dental Implants

For a long time, people thought the only thing that could replace teeth were big, bulky dentures. Today, our office in Fredericksburg, VA has dental implants to give you a comfortable, long-lasting, beautiful smile that you don’t have to take out before bed!

Tongue and Lip-tie Treatment

A frenectomy is a procedure that releases lip and tongue-ties. Dr. Butterworth utilizes laser technology to release a tongue or lip-tie and offers this service to infants, children, and adults.
