At Old Ivy Dental, we focus primarily on restorative dentistry and general hygiene services. We believe strongly that quality dentistry begins with quality examination and diagnosis. For this reason, new patients are welcomed into our practice with a comprehensive oral evaluation. During this visit, we will explore together the factors affecting the health of your teeth, gum and bone, jaw joints and muscles, and the overall esthetics of your smile. The time we invest together in your initial visit not only allows us to better understand the condition of your oral health, but also gives us an opportunity to get to know you. With this knowledge, we are better able to personalize your treatment plan to fit you as an individual. Our promise to you is to be thorough in our diagnosis, honest in our treatment planning, and focused on exceptional quality and service. Through the fulfillment of this promise and your commitment to your care, our ultimate goal is to help you to maintain a healthy, stable smile for a lifetime.
