LAS CRUCES, NM â€” Dr. Brian Gilbert, an award-winning Las Cruces cosmetic dentist, has launched a state-of-the-art website that includes videos and convenient online appointment forms.
The new website, http://brightstardental.com, was launched early this year and designed by Dr. Gilbert, who operates Bright Star Dental, the only accredited American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry office in the area. Dr. Gilbert said the website gives patients and local residents a chance to learn more about their oral health. Â Â
â€œWe wanted to create a website that would educate our patients and also be warm and friendly, just like our office,â€ Dr. Gilbert said.
The new website includes detailed information about individual practice services; video testimonials from Dr. Gilbert and his dedicated patients; and convenient online forms. Dr. Gilbert also will populate his website with fresh and unique content, including fun dental quizzes and helpful dental tips.
Site visitors can also access a free e-book written by Dr. Gilbert about dental implants. In the e-book, patients can learn about the importance of dental implants and replacing missing teeth.
â€œWe have a number of ways in which patients can correct their smile, and this website gives us the ability to reach more people,â€ Dr. Gilbert said. â€œPatients want to have the latest information at their fingertips, and the more they know, the more likely they are to achieve great oral health.â€
Bright Star Dental has been serving the community since 1989 through general dental care, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, and orthodontics. The staff implements the latest technology into every facet of treatment. The office offers technology to place permanent crowns in one visit. Bright Star Dental also has become a leader in providing dental implant options for patients missing single teeth or missing all of their teeth.
The patient experience comes first at Bright Star Dental. The office has heated chairs with memory foam, warm blankets, and even sedation dentistry for fearful patients. Sedation dentistry is often used with patients who are fearful of the procedures or those patients who need longer dental appointments.

He graduated magna cum laude with a biology degree from New Mexico State University and then became the valedictorian at University of Colorado School of Dentistry.
