All that is good begins with a SMILE!

When you visit our office in Olympia, your total health is our top priority.  Good health starts with a healthy mouth, which means a confident smile and the ability to eat a healthy diet.  Whatever your goal is for your mouth, be it that beautiful smile you have always wanted or to regain the ability to eat the foods you love, our entire team is dedicated to providing you with the personalized, gentle dental care that you deserve.  

Dr. Rodger A. Lawton  and Dr. Joshua A. Manchester are specialists in prosthodontics, also known as prosthetic dentistry, the specialty of the restoration and replacement of teeth.  Dr. Lawton is board certified in prosthodontics.  From beautiful smile makeovers with porcelain veneers or crowns to a full mouth rehabilitation on dental implants to custom, natural appearing dentures, our expertise and meticulous attention to detail can correct a wide variety of cosmetic and functional dental problems. Our passion is creating custom dental solutions for each patient's functional and aesthetic wishes.

Northwest Center for Prosthodontics is one of the few dental offices in the Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater and South Puget Sound region who has their own private dental laboratory.  Our experienced, certified dental technicians create custom restorations in-house from only the best materials using the latest dental laboratory technologies.

Dr. Lawton has been on the leading edge of dental implant technology since 1988. He has restored thousands of implants in all types of dental restorations.  He works closely with many local dental surgeons and has also personally placed over 800 implants since 2002.  He has vast experience in immediate implant placement and immediate function, both for single tooth or full arch solutions such as All-On-Four/Teeth-In-A-Day techniques. 

Part of our commitment to serving our patients includes providing information that helps them to make more informed decisions about their oral health needs.  This website is a resource we hope you’ll find both useful and interesting.
