"Dr. Gronemyer and his whole team are really down to earth and fun people to be around. They take great care of their patients; I have never once received less than exceptional dental care- truly stellar work. In my experience, Dr. Gronemyer and my hygienist, Savannah, really take a personal interest in how my life is going with college. My parents also go to Dr. Gronemyer and he shows that he personally cares about our whole family. Great man, and great dentist. 5 stars. Keep up the great work guys!"
"I have never, in my short 74 years of life, met a more congenial and professional dentist! I went to Dr. Jay for a full set of dentures and Have not been more impressed. After a few visits for fittings, I received my final dentures , I wore them for 4 days, I went in for a minor adjustment and have only had to take them out since the first day to clean them once a day , wearing them day and night. I have been able to eat almost any kind of food that I have tried. I highly recommend Dr. Jay!"
"From the receptionist to Dr. Gronemyer you'll encounter a wonderful and gentle group of professionals. I've been going there a couple years now and had nothing but positive experiences. Do yourself a favor and make your next check-up or cleaning with the staff at Dr. Gronemyer's."
"I appreciate the consistency and friendliness of the staff! I’ve been going to this office for years and have been impressed every time I go to the office."
"An outstanding family dentistry!!!! Jay and his entire staff make you feel like part of their extended family. You are treated with respect and kindness from the moment you enter the door and throughout your entire experience. Not to mention a gentle touch and top quality dental care. Special thanks to Leah for keeping us connected, up to date and always welcoming and Savannah for the excellent cleaning and care of our entire family."
"Dr. Jay and staff have provided excellent care of my wife and I since we moved to Redmond 4 years ago. Further, he recently completed an implant of a front tooth that could no longer hold a crown. In order to obtain a perfect match with the new implant, he also generously replaced the crown on the other front tooth. The outcome was perfect. Best appearance in 20 plus years!!"
"Excellent dental office! All of the staff and Jay himself are very kind. They really care about helping you and making you as comfortable as possible. They have helped me start a great care plan and make it affordable to keep up on your dental health. I have had some deep cleanings that I needed to complete to get back on track and Savannah is the best hygienist I have ever worked with!"
"Savannah is an awesome hygienist! She is extremely considerate—doing little things to make you feel as comfortable as possible. She is especially good with sensitive mouths. The office has a great atmosphere and is an overall positive experience!"
"From the moment you walk in, everyone is kind, friendly, gentle and compassionate!!! Procedures are explained thoroughly and while being worked, they are explained as procedure is being done. They made us feel that we are more than patients. Highly recommend Dr. Jay and his staff!!!"
"The dentist is never fun, but the staff here is super personable, kind, and they are constantly making sure you are comfortable. Highly recommend! Everyone is knowledgeable if you have questions, and they don’t ever get frustrated."
Savanna is my Dental Hygienist and does a very thorough job and always educates me on my oral health. I love how friendly and positive she always is. I moved to Portland and decided to keep going to Dr. Jay Gronemyers office because I think it is rare to find Hygienists and Dentist that care about their patients teeth and overall health as much as they do. I appreciate that they take the time that is needed to do a good job every time. Keep up the good work. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone.

Comprehensive Dental Services
At Jay Gronemyer, DMD, we offer a variety of comprehensive dental services to meet the needs of the Redmond community. Whether it’s time for your regular cleaning or you need extensive restorative work done, we’re here to help you have the smile you deserve.
Studies have shown that overall health is closely tied to dental health. Routine preventive care helps ensure that your teeth, gums, and jaw are healthy and helps us catch potential problems before they require more invasive treatment.
- Routine Cleanings & Exams
- Sealants & Fluoride Treatments
- Nightguards & Athletic Mouthguards
- Oral Cancer Screenings
“If you’ve experienced a trauma to your mouth or jaw, don’t suffer in pain until an available appointment. Call our office immediately! We reserve time in our schedule each day for emergencies, so you don’t have to just grin and bear it.”
There are times when preventive care isn’t enough to keep your teeth in good shape. Restorative procedures like fillings, crowns, and root canal therapy help get your teeth back in good health. We offer all of these procedures in our office, so you don’t have to drive all around town for appointments with specialists.
If we discover a cavity forming during an exam, we offer you two options for filling the cavity and restoring your tooth to health. Traditional amalgam fillings are silver in color. Composite fillings are tooth-colored, so they look more natural. They also require a less invasive procedure and leave behind more of the tooth’s healthy structure.
Cowns & Bridges
Crowns are placed on top of teeth that are cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged or weakened to add strength and prevent further damage. Our porcelain crowns are custom fabricated for a natural fit in your mouth and to match the color of your surrounding healthy teeth. For patients missing one or more teeth, bridges are often a great solution. Bridges attach to crowns that are placed on either side of the gap caused by missing teeth. The connecting bridge has false teeth in place of the missing teeth, restoring function and giving your smile a more complete look.
When your natural teeth have failed, often the best solution to replace them is dentures. Dr. Gronemyer and our team can fabricate full or partial dentures that will have you talking, smiling, and eating comfortably again. The fabrication and fitting process for your dentures takes a few appointments, but once they’re fitted, they feel remarkably comfortable.
Root Canal Therapy
Pain from an infected tooth can be excruciating. Root canal therapy — although most people associate it with pain — is typically the best way to relieve the pain and save the infected tooth. During root canal therapy, Dr. Gronemyer will scrape out the infected pulp and clean out the tooth. A crown will be placed over the tooth to keep future infections at bay and provide strength to the weakened tooth.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth are an additional set of molars that often erupt during late teen to early adult years. Often, there isn’t enough room for these teeth to fit comfortably in the mouth, so extraction is necessary. If left alone, surrounding teeth could shift or the wisdom teeth could become impacted, leaving room for infection. Dr. Gronemyer will perform an exam and take digital X-rays of your mouth to determine if extraction is needed. If it is, he will walk you through the procedure and provide you with the necessary sedation during the surgery.
Your smile says so much about you, and it is often the first impression people have of you. Get a smile that you’re proud to show off with our cosmetic dental services.
If you find yourself hiding your teeth due to chips, cracks, gaps, or severe discoloration, porcelain veneers could be a solution. Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are custom crafted and bonded to the front side of your teeth to drastically change your smile. The veneers are created from a model you create with the help of Dr. Gronemyer and our smile preview software.
We offer two ways to whiten your smile. ZOOM!® in-office one-visit whitening can brighten your smile up to eight shades in a single appointment. If you prefer to whiten on your own time, we can create custom whitening trays for you to use at home in conjunction with our professional strength whitening gel. Dr. Gronemyer will suggest a whitening routine for you to follow at home to get the beautifully white smile you’ve always wanted.
The Academy of General Dentistry recommends that children visit a dentist when their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday. At Jay Gronemyer, DMD, we are happy to see children of all ages for a variety of pediatric dental services.
- Pediatric Exams & Cleanings
- Protective Sealants
- Fluoride Treatments
- Fillings (Silver & Tooth-Colored)
We want you to be comfortable with all aspects of your treatment while in our care. Dr. Gronemyer thoroughly explains all procedures with patients prior to beginning treatment. If at any point you are uncomfortable, let us know and we will gladly adjust our pacing to help you feel more at ease.
Additionally, for those who suffer from dental anxiety, we offer a number of calming sedation options to help you feel more relaxed during procedures. Although most patients report no lingering side effects, we recommend that you have someone drop you off and pick you up from your appointment if you will be undergoing sedation of any kind.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
We use nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, to help patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety relax during their treatment. The gas is inhaled through a mask during your procedure and induces a heightened sense of well-being and relaxation. When your procedure is over, inhaling pure oxygen for just a minute or two will completely reverse the effects of the gas.
Oral Conscious Sedation
For patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety, we offer oral conscious sedation. Dr. Gronemyer will carefully prescribe you a pill to take shortly before your appointment. By the time treatment begins, you will be completely at ease while also fully conscious, allowing us to communicate with you during the procedure.
Sedation Reversal with OraVerse
Once your procedure is over, there’s no need to deal with numbness in your gums, lips, or cheeks, which makes even basic activities such as drinking and talking difficult. An injection of OraVerse helps speed up the return of normal sensation following dental work. OraVerse is thought to increase the blood flow to soft tissue areas, allowing sensation to return within an hour or so, compared to two or more hours without medication.
NEW Cerec Same-Day Dental Crowns
CEREC is a new, state-of-the-art technology specifically designed for restoring damaged teeth in a single visit with Dr. Gronemyer. With CEREC, there is no need for a temporary crown, eliminating significant potential discomfort. By taking a digital impression of your teeth, we can quickly design and turn a piece of ceramic into a color-matched restoration to blend in with your surrounding teeth. This provides you with less injections and less discomfort with a same-day solution.
- Minimally Invasive
- A Better, Healthy Smile
- Same Day Speed
RESTORE YOUR SMILE WITH Dental Implants
Are you missing one or more teeth? Do you wear uncomfortable or ill-fitting dentures? If so, dental implants may be able to improve your confidence and quality of life and have you wanting to show off your smile again.Don’t give up on your smile just yet!
Redmond dentist, Dr. Jay Gronemyer, is trained in all phases of implant dentistry, and he can give you a smile you’ll be proud to show off again.
What Are Dental Implants
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone in place of missing teeth. The biocompatible material fuses with the bone tissue to form a solid foundation for a restoration like a crown or bridge to fill in the gap in your smile. Prior to beginning the implant placement procedure, Dr. Gronemyer will discuss the entire procedure with you, so you understand what will be happening, step by step. He will also gladly address any questions or concerns you might have.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Dental implants are the preferred method of patients and doctors alike for replacing missing teeth.
- Implants are useful in stabilizing dentures when you are missing most of your teeth, or can be used in conjunction with crowns and bridges to replace one or two teeth.
- Restorations that are anchored by implants can help maintain the shape and function of your lips, jaw, and face.
- Best of all, dental implants look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth, so you’ll be smiling, talking, and eating with ease again in no time!
Dental Implants Restoration
Dr. Jay Gronemyer is well versed in dental implant restorations. Prior to your procedure, he will discuss your restoration options with you and help you determine which is best for you.
To replace only one or two missing teeth, Dr. Gronemyer will often place a crown, or cap, on top of the implant once it has fused with the bone tissue.
We use smile preview software to make a model of the crown, and then mill your crown based on this model, ensuring a more comfortable fit.
If you are missing most of your teeth, dentures are often the best way to replace them. Typical dentures, however, can slip and slide, irritating your gums.
Dr. Gronemyer can use dental implants that your dentures can snap into to help give you a new smile that stays in place.

Digital X-rays and digital panoramic X-rays not only emit less radiation than traditional dental X-rays – up to 90% less, in fact – but they also are available much faster because chemical processing of film is no longer required. This means we can go over our findings with you within seconds. Digital X-rays also help us detect potential problems earlier, meaning treatment can generally be more conservative.
Digital imaging, or smile preview software, lets us take pictures of your mouth and then display them on a computer screen. We then take these pictures and alter them to make a model of your smile based on your smile goals. This software is essential to procedures like porcelain veneers, crowns, and more.
Isolite® Patient Comfort System
The Isolite patient comfort system has a soft mouthpiece to shield your tongue and cheek during procedures, and a light to illuminate your mouth from the inside for more efficient treatments. It also has a place for you to rest your jaw, so you won’t leave our office with uncomfortable and annoying jaw pain.
Our intraoral camera allows us to show you what we see inside your mouth, so we’re able to walk you through diagnoses and treatments easier than ever before.
