Our dental practice is
uniquely different from any dental practice you have ever experienced.
Not simply because of the pleasant surroundings or the highly skilled
professional staff, or even the high-quality technical work we do.
practice is different because our mission is different.
In today's world you are offered many choices for how dental health care
will be delivered to you, the patient. You can choose a health maintenance
organization (HMO), preferred provider organization (PPO), or a capitation
system. In all of these health delivery systems, you the patient do not
have a choice with regard to your treatment plan—you are
not able to choose the dentist who attends to you, and normally
you do not develop a significant relationship with either the dentist
or the staff.
practice represents a small percentage of dentists in the United States who have
made a commitment to practice in an independent environment. In this environment, we are able to choose the best treatment plan that is consistent
with your needs, wants, and values. We also focus on empowering and educating patients to make sound, intelligent decisions regarding their long-term dental health. This is important because it is our mission to have our patients participate in the prevention and curative phases of their treatment.
We have centered our practice on prevention and health as opposed to one
that simply emphasizes emergency and repair care. The supporting gum tissue
and bone are just as vital as the teeth themselves. Unfortunately only
lip service is paid to these important areas and prevention is often misunderstood
and inadequately stressed.
best way to protect and maintain the crucial supporting structures of your mouth for
life is to have a qualified hygienist clean your teeth regularly, at which
time preventive procedures can be implemented to protect your dental health.
While the responsibility for returning for periodic preventive treatment
lies with you, we will provide an ongoing program of health maintenance
We recognize that emergencies do occur. Established patients will be provided with a 24-hour phone number that will allow you to reach
us at anytime of the day or night. We provide special priority status
for you, any family member, or friend.
