A Positive Experience

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

High Standards

A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality periodontal and implant services our patients deserve for optimal oral health.  

Education & Prevention

As a specialty practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to success once optimal periodontal health is achieved.  That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your oral tissues, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary.  We also know that periodic periodontal maintenance appointments in our office along with consistent and thorough homecare are all helpful in preventing recurring periodontal concerns.  Not only are we focused on your oral health, we’re also concerned about your physical 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 periodontal health. Afterall, research has proven definite connections between periodontal health and other health issues. These connections are described in the Periodontal Disease section of the PROCEDURES heading in our website.

Uncompromised Safety

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 periodontal 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 periodontal and implant care.  Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
