We understand that choosing a new dentist and dental team can be a challenge, leaving you with some uncertain feelings. We would like to share with you our beliefs about what we do for the people we serve. Briefly stated, our philosophy is this…
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 teeth. We provide dental health care of the highest quality that each patient can accept, ensuring that it is consistent with their needs and value for oral health.
In other words, our goal is to help our patients become as healthy as they choose. This is a major and radical departure from the way we were trained. Instead of telling our patients how healthy they should be, we try to help them understand their choices about dental health and then let them make a free and informed decision. The goal of good dentistry is to help our patients keep all of their teeth for the rest of their lives in maximum health, comfort, function, and esthetics at a minimal expense and stress level to them. In our philosophy of practice, our patients are of great value and importance. Our patient’s physical, mental, and emotional health will always be the objects of our prime concern.
Excellence in dentistry begins with a careful diagnosis and with the development of a master plan to move us toward the health goals we establish with our patients. Every patient has unique dental needs, and we will analyze and address them candidly and objectively. We will identify and carefully consider our patient’s feelings and preferences.
We place at our patients’ disposal the professional judgment and skill we have gained through many years of dental education, including 17 years of combined dental school training, 37 years of combined practice experience, and over a thousand hours of continuing education courses. In our recommendations, we will apply this judgment and skill in determining the causes of present and potential future damage. We will find reasonable answers through careful examination of teeth, gums, occlusion (bite), joints of the jawbone, and soft tissues. We will utilize full mouth radiographs (X-ray pictures) and, where desirable, we will study other radiographs, photographs, and actual 3-D study models of teeth and jaws on a jaw stimulator. The success of our efforts is assured through proper examination and thorough goal setting to achieve an effective master plan.
Our pledge to our patients is accurately expressed in these carefully chosen words: QUALITY and EXCELLENCE. We look upon every individual as a unique person of infinite worth both to God and to those who love and need them. Through our care and concern, we will reaffirm that worth.
