Crown Pointe Dentistry recently opened a brand new facility in the Shops at Willow Park. Modern, up-to-date equipment for the highest standard of care for you and your family.
Drs. Chad and Mike Drennan have practiced in the area since 2005 supporting patients from Aledo, Willow Park, Hudson Oaks, Weatherford and beyond.
At Crown Pointe Dentistry, you will be treated like a member of the family. No overdiagnosis, no hard sells. We want you to be a partner in your care.
Crown Pointe Dentistry is the evolution of our Aledo family dental practice that began accepting patients in the summer of 2005. For twelve years, Drs. Chad and Mike Drennan provided general and cosmetic dental care to the families of Aledo, Willow Park, and surrounding areas under the title Aledo Dental Associates.
In 2016, the doctors began to search for an opportunity to grow Aledo Dental Associates into something more. The goal was to find an opportunity to build a new dental facility in or around Aledo that would be representative of the doctors’ vision for the highest quality care.
That opportunity presented itself in the form of the Shops at Willow Park, a soon-to-be underway master development in nearby Willow Park, TX. The Shops at Willow Park promised to be the perfect combination of convenience and amenity for the current and future patients of Aledo Dental Associates.
In the summer of 2018, work began on the new and improved dental facility for Aledo Dental Associates. With work underway in the Crown Pointe Addition of Willow Park, TX, the doctors made a big decision to change the name of the practice to something more befitting of the new location. Aledo Dental Associates became Crown Pointe Dentistry. Even though our name changed, Crown Pointe Dentistry remains committed to the same conservative principles of care that made Aledo Dental Associates a trusted name in Parker County.
We look forward to seeing you in the new practice!
Crown Pointe Dentistry is located in the Shops at Willow Park development off of Mikus Rd. We are a free standing building located on the north side of Shops Blvd., directly behind the Drake's Yoke Restaurant. Our address is:

The comprehensive exam is our preferred method of bringing a new patient into the practice. On the day of your appointment, expect to be with us for close to two hours. This might seem like a lengthy appointment, but there is much to be accomplished in this preliminary visit. This is how your visit will unfold:
If you have not yet spoken with one of our front desk administrators, you will need to fill out the necessary new patient paperwork. This consists of your medical and dental histories, HIPAA Privacy Practices acknowledgement, and insurance information. If you prefer, you can complete your paperwork online. If you would rather complete the forms by hand in the comfort of your own home or office, please click the link to download our forms. Print them, fill them out, and bring them along to your scheduled visit. If you do not wish to fill out your paperwork ahead of time, please arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to your scheduled visit, so that the forms may be completed inside the office.
Once your paperwork is complete, you will be escorted to a treatment room and introduced to your dental hygienist. We have three wonderful hygienists at Crown Pointe Dentistry. In most cases, you will continue to see the same hygienist over time for your follow-up care. If a scheduling conflict arises, you may request to be seen "first available" for your dental cleanings.
Your dental hygienist will begin by taking full mouth series, or FMX. The FMX series consists of 19 separate x-rays that show us every surface of every tooth in the mouth. We may also take a full face x-ray called a CBCT, which allows us to see the teeth and structures of the oral cavity in three dimensions. The FMX series is generally recommended every 3-5 years. Typically we take four individual x-rays once a year to check for cavities in between the teeth.
In addition to necessary x-rays, your hygienist will create a periodontal record in your dental chart, which includes measurements of the gum pockets that exists around every tooth. Measurements of 1-2mm are indicative of good periodontal health. Measurements of 3mm or more could be a sign that you have early or advanced stages of periodontal disease, which must be managed and treated differently than a regular cleaning. If there is evidence that you suffer from periodontal disease, your hygienist and dentist will make a recommendation for your followup care that may include a "deep" cleaning or scale and root plane procedure, as well as an accelerated follow up schedule to check your progress. Periodontal disease is linked to a wide variety of systemic diseases including cardiac disease, so it must be treated carefully.
If you are deemed to be in good periodontal health, your hygienist will perform a dental prophylaxis, or cleaning, of your teeth and gums. You will be established on a twice yearly recall schedule for additional cleanings and exams by your doctor. It is important to schedule these followups at the time of your visit to reserve your spot on the schedule.
Once your periodontal status has been evaluated and recorded, you will spend the second hour of your new patient exam visiting with the doctor. The dental assistant will record additional information for your chart including pre-existing dental work, chief complaints, and photographs of your teeth. Together with your x-rays, these photographs are a valuable way for Dr. Drennan to demonstrate the condition of your mouth and generate open discussion about your needs and goals. Dr. Drennan will perform a soft tissue cancer screening, evaluate your x-rays and scans for any hidden problems, and make treatment recommendations as necessary. This is also a great time for you to discuss any "wants" you may have for yourself such as whiter teeth or a better smile. You will have Dr. Drennan's undivided attention, so ask as many questions as you like.
In some cases, if your case demands a more detailed approach, Dr. Drennan may recommend that you be scheduled for a follow-up case presentation, so that all of the information gathered at your first visit can be explained in a more efficient and logical way. You will be provided with a copy of your proposed treatment plan and asked to acknowledge your receipt of this plan. This acknowledgement is in no way an obligation to the patient to proceed with the proposed treatment plan.
