Our goal is to help you keep all of your teeth and maintain your oral health for the rest of your life in maximum health, comfort, function, and esthetics. Our desire is to help you become as healthy as you choose. We do this by providing dental healthcare of the highest quality for each patient and ensuring that their care is consistent with their dental needs and value for oral health. Instead of telling you how healthy you should be, we try to help you understand your choices about dental health and then let you make an informed choice based upon your circumstances and your values.
Excellence in dentistry begins with a careful and comprehensive examination and diagnosis. The next step is the development of a plan to move us towards the health goals we establish together. You have unique dental needs, and we will analyze them candidly and objectively. We will carefully consider your feelings and preferences.
We place at your disposal the professional judgement and skill that we have gained through many years of dental training, post-graduate education and clinical experience. In our recommendations, we will apply this judgement and skill in determining the causes of present and potential future damage. In our practice we consider it far better to prevent diseases than to treat them after they occur. Creating and maintaining your long term dental health is our primary mission.
