Let us share with you ... OUR PHILOSOPHY OF PRACTICE
We understand that choosing a dentist and health care team can be a challenge, leaving you with some uncertain feelings. We express our feelings as a form of welcoming you, and to share specifically our concern for you as our patient.
"Our desire is to help the people we serve achieve a higher level of self-esteem and well-being by enhancing the appearance, comfort, and function of their physical and dental health. We provide comprehensive care of the highest quality that is consistent with the patient's value for a healthy life."
Our goal is to help you become as healthy as you choose. Instead of telling you how healthy you should be, we shall help you understand your choices related to living a healthy life and then let you make free and informed decisions.
We are pleasantly committed to you as our patient. In our philosophy of practice, you are a person of great value and importance. Your physical, mental, and emotional health will always be the object of our prime concern.
Excellence begins with a careful diagnosis and the development of a treatment plan to guide us toward the health goals we shall establish together. You have unique health needs, which we shall examine and address candidly and objectively. We shall identify and carefully consider your feelings and preferences. The success of our efforts is assured through a comprehensive examination, diagnosis, analysis and goal setting to achieve an effective MASTER PLAN with which you will be pleased.
Our pledge to you is accurately expressed in these carefully chosen words: quality and excellence. We look upon you as a unique person of infinite worth to those who love and need you. Through our care and concern, we shall reaffirm that worth.
