We are proud to be an integral part of your community and are devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your teeth using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles! Our office motto has always been "you only have one chance to make a good first impression." Our staff here holds themselves to that standard not only on your first visit, but also in all of the visits that follow.
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible. We also accept most dental plans and will process all of your insurance forms for you.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
Why Choose Our Practice?
The field of dentistry is continuously changing. However, while being "on the cutting edge" always seems to sound appealing, this type of dentistry can also expose a patient to experimental fads that are gone as quickly as they came. So just saying that you are using cutting edge techniques is not always a good thing in the dental profession.
We feel that our practice is "conservatively progressive", and we invest in new technology when it makes sense for not only our practice but for our patients. For example, our new digital x-rays reduce radiation exposure 70-90% as compared to conventional x-rays. These x-rays can then be enlarged so that they are easier to read by both the dentist and the patient. This technology also comes with a Logicon component (unique to our Kodak x-ray unit) that allows us to digitally scan for decay between your teeth. The Logicon program even assigns colors to different levels of the tooth so that if decay is present, it can be easily read and understood by both the patient and the dentist. Technology like this just makes sense.
Our Diagnodent system allows us to scan into the small crevices within your children's teeth. Is it decay or just a stain? The Diagnodent helps us to now better answer that question and take the appropriate steps to resolve the problem. Again, this technology just makes sense.
Whether it's a sonar device use when performing root canals or well-tested cosmetic techniques, such as implants, posterior white fillings, bleaching and veneers, to improve your smile, our practice is conservatively progressive...we change when it makes sense.
