Bright Star Dental is devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, state-of-the-art dental procedures that will help you acheive long lasting health. 

High Standards

A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, Dr. Viviana Duce will make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”.  That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluorides are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Training & Expertise

As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. 


A Positive Experience

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.

About Us
Our Services


Dental Exams & Cleanings


A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by your dentist at your initial dental visit.

Cosmetic Dentistry


In the past decade there has been a dramatic interest in cosmetic dentistry.

Periodontal Disease


Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults.



Teeth are susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage and sometimes need to be restored back to health.

Dental Vibe


Pain-Free Without Sedation! No pills to take, no gas to inhale,
and no drowsy after-effects to worry about.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening


A pearly-white smile is beautiful to look at and can greatly improve self-confidence.

Digital Practice


The itero scanner is an intraoral imaging system that captures the shape of  teeth and mouth and provides a 3D image. It free our patients from uncomfortable impressions and help our patients visualize areas of needed treatment as well as outcomes and progress. 



Invisalign aligners are less painful than braces. The treatment is completed faster, on average, than treatment with braces. Since invisalign aligners are removable, you can brush and floss as usual, meaning better oral hygiene.

Happy Staff

From the minute I walked in the door and was greeted, I was comfortable. In the past, I’ve always been uncomfortable in Dentist Offices.

Dr. Duce and her staff were amazing. John is by far the best Dental Hygienist I’ve ever been to. I have very sensitive teeth and a wicked gag reflex, and he was very patient and took his time making sure I was okay the whole time. My teeth have never felt cleaner.

On my 1st visit Dr Duce thoroughly explained and showed me what I needed to get done. She filled 3 cavities so far. I have not had good experiences with Dentists in the past and told her this. Dr. Duce and her assistant were consistently checking if I was comfortable and asking frequently if I needed a break. I didn’t feel like a #, I felt like they really genuinely cared and I trust them.

If you’re looking for a Dental office that really cares for its patients, go here. Valerie Wails 😊
