About Us

Our Mission Statement

We are a caring, personal staff that continually strive to create an atmosphere where patients feel welcomed, relaxed, cared for, and important.  We promise our patients we will be dedicated to:

  • Know our patients so we may care for them as unique individuals.
  • Educate our patients to enable them to make informed decisions regarding their dental treatment.
  • Listen to our patients’ concerns and help them to find solutions for their dental needs.
  • Continually strive not only to meet our patients’ expectations, but to also exceed them.  
  • Stay current with our continuing education so that we may provide state of the art care.
  • Enable patients to keep their smile in a state of health, beauty and function for a lifetime.   

Initial Diagnosis

To prevent dental disease, first we need a complete picture of your present oral health in addition to your dental and medical history. Your initial examination will include an evaluation of past, present, and potential problems. X-rays and an examination of your oral tissues for decay and gum/bone disease are used to identify hidden problems. An oral screening for cancer will be done as well.   If a malocclusion (bad bite) or problems with your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are present or developing, we may also take diagnostic impressions. It is through the collection of this information that we can best design a treatment plan that is specific for your individual needs. 

Planning Treatment

When your examination is complete, we will discuss our findings with you and make recommendations for treatment. We want you to know your treatment plan and the costs involved. Also, we want you to help decide which path we should follow.

Referrals

We can think of no greater compliment than being asked to care for one of your family members or friends. We encourage and appreciate patient referrals.

Infection Control--Protecting Your Health

Your health is our main priority.  We are concerned not only with protecting your teeth but also with your general health as well.  We follow the same protocol of infection control for you as we expect and demand for our families and for ourselves.  We follow guidelines established by the American Dental Association and the Center for Disease Control to guard against the transmission of infectious diseases. For more information on infection control, see our Frequently Asked Questions section.
