Our Practice Philosophy is simple:
QUALITY DENTAL CARE
Our practice is dedicated to quality dental care for all of our patients. A thorough oral examination is critical to determining your dental health needs and placing those needs in perspective with your desires. We will enlist your assistance as we identify any existing areas of ill health such as decay, infection, or functional defects. Additionally, we will focus on determining the underlying causes of ill health. In our practice, we have found that by treating the affected areas and the underlying causes, we can make significant strides toward helping patients avoid a recurrence of their problems. This is how we provide our patients with the greatest possible value in their dental care investment.
Once we completely understand your needs and desires, we will focus on your available treatment options. While developing your treatment options, we always think about how we would want to be treated if we were in your situation. With that thought in mind, we can develop options that will best suit your situation.
