We are a dental practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, proven treatments that will result in healthy, attractive smiles!
Practicing from a high standard of excellence, we tailor treatment to the individual, enabling our patients to enjoy the high quality dental care they deserve. Through customized treatment planning in the area of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry, w help patients achieve their most beautiful, healthy smiles. If a patient experiences a dental emergency, we provide the fastest possible response.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we believe in prevention as the number one way to achieve optimal oral health. The dental care we provide seeks first to care for the mouth rather than to chase existing disease. This philosophy is experienced during our routine dental examinations, which are exceedingly thorough, incorporating the latest diagnostic testing and equipment such as intraoral photographs and x-ray imaging. Our patients may also receive saliva testing to assess the risk of periodontal disease, and oral cancer screenings. Preventive treatments such as fluoride and dental sealants may top off routine cleanings as a way to further protect teeth from decay.
We are as concerned about our patients health as we area about helping them maintain beautiful smiles. We get to know you when you choose us as your dental family, reviewing your family and medical history, and discussing any relevant information such as illnesses and medications which may affect dental health.
Our team is committed to stringent infection control. As a way of protecting our patients and staff, we adhere to strict guidelines for cross contamination and sterilization set form by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
We do not take lightly the fact that our patients entrust their smiles to us. We want our patients to feel confident that their needs are attended to by highly trained and experienced clinicians. We are proud of the level of care that we provide to our patients, as well as our commitment to continued education and training. Our staff attends meetings, lectures, and conventions relating to innovations in dentistry such as new techniques, products, or equipment, choosing to incorporate those that will benefit our patients. We also stay abreast of advances in dentistry through memberships with various professional dental associations.
A Positive Experience
One of the reasons we have experienced such success as a dental practice is that we have remained committed to building trust within our patients. We understand that many people struggle with receiving dental care, and work with individuals to enhance their dental experiences through personalized care. Our entire team is dedicated to providing each patient with the highest standard of personalized care so that dental visits may be pleasant and comfortable.
We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.
