Our Approach Is Patient Centered
We practice in a relationship-based way.
This means that we care about you as an individual and whole person. We schedule ample time for each patient and are eager to answer your questions and discuss all aspects of oral health. We will spend time in conversation, getting to know you and what is important to you.
We want you to be fully informed so you can make the healthy choices that are best for you. Treatment options will be fully explained so you know the relative advantages of each. Although you will receive guidance in making decisions that are most appropriate for you, you will not be pressured to accept treatment, and we understand that you may need time to consider your options. We want you to not only feel comfortable, but also remain in control.
We focus on your oral health.
This means that we are thorough in examining you to gain a comprehensive picture of your special oral health situation. The recommended timing of preventive dental cleanings, checkups, and treatment will be based on your oral health circumstances, and at times, may exceed the limits of your dental benefits. Comprehensive treatment will be compatible with long-term health and function. With careful planning, we can optimally improve the health, appearance, and function of your entire mouth.
Your treatment may be done “full speed ahead” or in more affordable phases, depending on your circumstances and preferences. When your mouth is restored to optimal condition, according to a comprehensive treatment plan, you will likely require less restorative dentistry over your lifetime.
