We are a health-centered, prevention-oriented, personalized dental practice. As a form of welcoming you to our practice, we would like to share with you the following information.
Briefly stated, our philosophy of practice is this...
Our philosophy is to treat every patient as an individual human being with dignity and respect. We believe in building mutually beneficial relationships with our patients based on trust. By having this relationship, we hope to empower our patients with the knowledge and education to keep their natural teeth for a lifetime.
Our purpose is to design and implement individualized treatment based on a thorough evaluation of each patient’s current dental condition. Part of our mission is to treat the individual as a whole person rather than tooth by tooth and to instill in them a sense of value that will allow them to take responsibility for their needs.
The cornerstone of our practice is the examination process. We feel that every patient deserves to know what their present level of oral health is, how they got there, and what treatment options are available to help them reach the level of health that they desire. We will perform a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums, occlusion (bite), joints, and soft tissues. With your permission, we will take the appropriate x-rays, and where beneficial we may use intra-oral photographs and study models of your teeth and jaws to identify areas of concern.
Excellence in dentistry begins with a careful diagnosis and treatment plan. Once all the diagnostic records are complete, we will provide you with our written “Review of Findings.” We will discuss our findings with you, and develop a personalized treatment plan that will move us toward the goals we will establish together.
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, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative 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 fluoride 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.
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. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
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.
