patients to choose a dental office appropriate to their needs there must
exist a match between the services sought by the patient and the services
provided by the office. If the value you posses for your teeth and health
coincides with our beliefs in fine dentistry and prevention, a mutually
rewarding relationship will evolve for both parties. As a form of welcoming
you and sharing our belief about how we serve patients, the following
information is provided.
stated, our philosophy of practice is this:
goal is to provide you with quality dentistry to help you keep all of
your teeth for the rest of your life in maximum health, comfort, function,
and appearance at a minimum of stress, discomfort, and expense."
dental office is a small health-oriented team of professionals dedicated
to serving patients. Our office maintains certain standards of skill
and concern and we want an aura about us that unquestionably makes a statement
of our quality care. To make this evident, we have committed to a particular
kind of practice. In a philosophical sense, basically one is devoted to
either quantity—do a little for a lot of people, or to quality—optimal
care on a long-term basis for regular patients. We want to attract and
keep people who share our values and beliefs in excellence or who can
grow to this level of appreciation through education and motivation. We
seek a patient population with high expectations of good health and happiness.
in dentistry begins with a careful diagnosis and treatment plan to move
us toward the goals we will establish together. We will perform an extensive
and comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums, bite, joints, and soft
tissues. When needed, and with your permission, we will utilize all appropriate
x-rays, intra-oral photographs, and study models of your teeth and jaw
to identify areas of concern. We believe this in-depth examination
to be the cornerstone of quality dentistry.
of Traditional Values:
the government becoming more involved in health care; insurance companies
trying to dictate treatment and fees; and some dental practices competing
through advertising, extended hours, and pricing; the very foundation
of dentistry is being tested. We believe there has never been a time when
a practice dedicated to prevention, service, and excellence has been more
highly rewarding to both our patients and to us in providing quality,
long-term health care. We hope you agree and will join our practice.
