Your time is important, so we strive to be efficient and minimize your wait. 


Toothaches happen at just the wrong time. Our goal at Above the Gate Dentistry is to help you keep your mouth healthy and avoid emergencies, but if it does happen, we make ourselves accessible to you and your family. We do this by providing same-day emergency treatment during office hours, root canal therapy, trauma or pain treatment, and access to us if something happens outside of business hours. You can count on the best kind of care and attention from us.

Have you been wondering what it would be like to have straighter smile? Do you have hard-to-clean crowded teeth or a bite that is off? Many adults and teens have turned to Invisalign and braces to help them set up their smile for life. Straight teeth work better together and are easier to clean and keep for a lifetime. We offer free consultations that can help you decide whether a straighter smile is right for you - and how to get there.  


Something may be missing - but it doesn't have to be, forever! There are so many great ways to replace missing teeth - and implants are the best. Technology and materials nowadays allow for simple appointments and the opportunity to replace teeth so you can smile, eat, and brush just like you used to.   


Sometimes, you just need a cleaning. Every day, the hygienists at Above the Gate Dentistry get compliments on their gentleness and thoroughness. They strive to help you keep the foundation of your smile healthy and shiny, and they are willing to teach you what you can do to keep your teeth throughout your life.  


A smile that can turn heads and light up a room is a wonderful thing. We, at Above the Gate Dentistry, have been extensively trained to create beautiful, long-lasting veneer restorations that reinforce and recreate your smile. We use the best materials, techniques, and labs so that you can smile with confidence.


We believe that fixing a tooth that has a problem can go hand-in-hand with making that tooth look and feel better. For that reason, we only use tooth-colored filling and bonding materials in our practice. Technology today allows us to fix our teeth and smile about it, too!


Have you ever had a temporary crown that just won't stay on? Our single-day crown appointments let you avoid a temporary crown completely, and even skip a second "install" appointment? In most cases, a tooth can be fixed by us within a couple hours - and with the best materials and techniques available today.  


A whiter smile can open many doors in life. Whether you are really trying to reverse those coffee or red wine stains, or just get a touch brighter, our "Whitening for Life" program is the way to go. Call us for details! 

Kids' Dentistry

At Above the Gate Dentistry, we see family members of all ages. Sometimes, kids are most comfortable in a place where they can observe mom and dad having cleanings or treatment. We create an environment that helps kids relax - and we are always gentle. We even recommend that toddlers come in for observation of a parent's cleaning and a quick check around the time that they first get teeth!  


We know that your time is valuable, and although our office team is super-friendly and sweet, here is not the place that you want to be all day. We set up appointments at Above the Gate Dentistry so that your wait time is very minimal, and the doctors and hygienists can have plenty of focused time and attention with you.  


Above the Gate Dentistry is a private practice of Drs. Davidson and Tuttle. We keep from selling out to corporations or insurance companies so that we maintain our ability to spend proper time and attention on our patients, and provide optimal care. This means that you can count on us to be there for you - and to be partners in your smile health for the long run.  


Have you heard anyone rave lately about how comfortable their dental appointment was - and how their face isn't numb all evening?! They were likely talking about the TNN numbing technique that Dr. Tuttle and Davidson use every day. This is revolutionary to your comfort, less invasive, and so much easier than it used to be. Have questions about it? Give us a call!

Dr. Tuttle became a partner in the practice, in 2004, after receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) from University of the Pacific’s School of Dentistry. As a technology enthusiastic, he dreams of a day when dentistry can be accomplished through tiny decay-guided robot spiders that crawl into our mouths while we are asleep and repair problems before they really start. Until that day, Dr. Tuttle’s will work diligently to keep the teeth of El Dorado County happy and healthy by using predictable techniques and advanced equipment. Outside of the office, he loves finding adventures to share with his friends and family, especially when those adventures include hiking to local waterfalls!

He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) from University of the Pacific’s School of Dentistry. Since earning his degree, he has devoted thousands of hours to continuing education courses so that he can provide innovative, quality care for his patients. Even outside of Above the Gate, Dr. Davidson is always working hard and helping others—he seems to find endless projects that need to be done. When he does make time to have some fun, he spends it hiking, boating, snowboarding, motorcycle riding, and going on epic adventures with his wife and five kids.
