Clagett Dental was founded in Elizabethtown, KY in 1947. Our mission is to provide a unique and personalized dental experience using a multi-specialist approach to provide a lifetime impact for our patients, team, and community.
For years, Dr. Dan Clagett has treated a wide variety of patients in the Elizabethtown area. Because he specializes in periodontics, he’s curated a seasoned eye that’s able to identify even the most minute signs of dental decay and disease. With a friendly demeanor and a wealth of experience in the field, Dr. Clagett excels at explaining conditions well and answering any questions the patient has.
Dr. Ryan Clagett comes from an entire family of dentists, so it’s no surprise that he followed the family trade. He earned his doctorate in dental medicine from the University of Louisville in 2003 and went back to school to get a master’s in oral biology in 2006. Since then, he’s worked hard to become a specialist in periodontics and implant dentistry in the Elizabethtown area.
Since graduating from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry in 2009, Dr. Lindsey Milby has dedicated her professional life to treating patients in the Elizabethtown area suffering from several dental issues. Whether a patient needs a simple cleaning or requires a more extensive cavity filling, Dr. Milby is caring and understanding throughout the entire process, helping patients feel safe and comfortable the whole time.
With the help of dental implants, patients can regain the functionality of the mouth and eat, speak, and swallow just like they used to. Dental implants are metal screws implanted into the jawbone, providing a stable and secure base for replacement teeth. With these teeth in place, the effect is transformative, creating a smile that looks beautiful and natural and lasts for a lifetime.
For Elizabethtown patients unhappy with the way their teeth look, veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry that can help change that. Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are manufactured in a custom process and painted onto the teeth, covering up chips, staining, gaps, and more. They’re a great way to make the teeth look whiter and more uniform for a smile that sparkles.
Crooked or misaligned teeth can detract from a smile, which is why so many patients turn to ClearCorrect™ to help straighten their teeth. ClearCorrect™ is a faster and less noticeable alternative to braces that’s far less painful. Patients simply need to wear plastic aligners for 22 hours a day to experience results. These aligners will be replaced every two weeks until the teeth are arranged in perfect alignment.
For Elizabethtown patients who might not qualify for dental implants, dentures are an amazing solution that also restores functionality to the mouth. Dentures sit right on top of the gums and are great for replacing an entire arch of teeth without any invasive surgeries or painful procedures. They allow patients to chew, swallow, and speak like they used to — not to mention flash a gorgeous smile.
If a patient has a chipped, cracked, or missing tooth, same-day crowns are an excellent way to correct these issues. This form of cosmetic dentistry eliminates the waiting period for a crown, as we can etch them right in-office all in one appointment. After carefully scanning the patient’s mouth, we create a 3-D rendering of the crown and use our milling machine to create it in minutes.
As always, a wonderful visit! Dr. Clagett and his staff make me feel at home and like a friend each and every time I’m there. I highly recommend them and I do exactly that, very often. Simply put, they’re all great and make my fears and apprehension nonexistent. For me, that’s what is most important.
Clagett Dental is committed to having a positive impact on the Elizabethtown community. That’s why we donated nearly $100,000 in money and dental services in 2019, in an effort to reach our goal of donating $1,000,000 to support those less fortunte by the year 2027.
While experience and knowledge play a great role in our ability to provide expert care, our advanced and state-of-the-art technology is another part of our success. Our doctors use only the latest tools in dental care to provide patients with the best experience possible. Long gone are the days of painful torture contraptions; instead, our doctors use futuristic devices to prevent discomfort and help patients enjoy coming to the dentist.
With this technology available, our cosmetic dentistry services are faster and more successful than ever before. Patients can feel safe and secure in placing trust in our doctors.
