We want to take a moment to share with you the foundation of our practice philosophy, including a commitment to quality care, emphasis on prevention, uncompromising safety, lifelong learning, and a commitment to a positive patient experience.
Quality Care and Resources
We believe that our patients deserve high standards of quality dental care and personalized service. There are a lot of different treatment options and resources available in dentistry today, and we strive to make sure every patient receives the information they need to make a decision that is right for them as an individual. We emphasize comprehensive treatment planning to address your concerns and apply the latest techniques in cosmetic and general dentistry to restore and enhance the natural beauty of your smile. As a member of our family of patients, you will find us accessible and helpful. If you happen to have a dental emergency, we will make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
Emphasis on Prevention
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This famous quote from Benjamin Franklin is so simple and yet so true. In our practice, we are focused on prevention as a way to help our patients stay healthy and avoid dental problems. For this reason, we ask that you keep us updated on any changes in your health or medications, as these factors can impact your dental health. Our preventative care program includes routine cleanings, a thorough exam of your teeth and gums, screening for oral cancer and other disorders of the mouth and gums, and dental x-rays when necessary. We also know the importance of good home dental care, so we make sure you know the best tools and techniques for your personal dental situation. We know that a healthy smile is a beautiful smile, and we make it our mission to help you achieve and maintain it.
Safety and infection control are extremely important to us, and we maintain strict sterilization and cross-contamination prevention protocols in our office. We only take the x-rays that are necessary for proper diagnosis and treatment planning, and we use digital x-rays as a way to significantly reduce the amount of exposure compared to traditional film x-rays. We maintain the same radiation safety and infection control standards as those recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines.
We pride ourselves on maintaining the knowledge and skills needed to give you the best possible results and service. Through dental continuing education lectures, courses, conventions, and meetings, we stay abreast of the newest developments in dentistry. Our involvement with various dental associations allows our team to stay informed of new recommendations, trends, and changes in the dental field. Modern equipment, techniques, and knowledge allow us to provide you with the quality, state-of the art care that you deserve. We are proud to be dental professionals, and you can have confidence in our highly trained and skilled dental team.
Commitment to a Positive Patient Experience
Dentistry can bring feelings of fear and apprehension to many patients. Our team is dedicated to making your dental experience as positive and relaxing as possible. Our success depends on building a solid foundation of trust by treating every patient with care, concern, and respect. Every patient is important in our practice, and we thank you for the opportunity to be YOUR dental health care team.
