Initial Appointment

New Patients
We take your oral health very seriously and are interested in developing a good working relationship with you. Our goal is to provide a comfortable atmosphere and build your confidence in us from the time you walk in the door. We conduct a very thorough new patient visit so that we can get to know you fully and define your oral health needs and objectives.

During this first visit you can expect to receive a thorough examination by the doctor including assessment of existing restorations and tooth decay, oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation (gums), cosmetic evaluation, TMJ (jaw joint) assessment, and tooth alignment/ occlusal (bite) analysis. A full series of digital x-rays will be taken as well as a panoramic x-ray to identify any problems with the teeth and their supporting structures. By utilizing digital technology and chairside computers we greatly reduce the amount of radiation a patient is exposed to as well as increase our diagnostic abilities. For those patients that have up to date x-rays from another office, we will gladly contact your previous office and obtain copies of the x-rays to use during your exam. After gathering all the necessary information the doctor will discuss with you his findings and the possible treatment options. It is during this consultation with you that the doctor will begin to develop your individualized treatment plan. By utilizing this approach of individualized comprehensive treatment planning, our goal is to lay out a set of treatment options that meet the needs and desires of each patient, and direct us on a course for the restoration and/or long term maintenance of each patients oral health.

Our Practice
We are a dental practice devoted to enhancing, restoring, and maintaining your beautiful smile. Using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures we predictably create healthy, long-lasting smiles.

Standard of Excellence
It is our goal to exceed our patient’s expectations with friendly, individualized care of an impeccable quality. We strive to provide comprehensive treatment planning based on sound restorative and cosmetic principles in order to optimize your oral health.

A Healthy Mouth and Body
In order to achieve and maintain optimal dental health we believe preventive care and education are essential. For this reason we focus on comprehensive exams and a thorough series of full mouth and panoramic x-rays . We stress to our patients the importance of routine hygiene visits, flossing, oral cancer exams, sealants, and fluoride. Furthermore, we are very aware that oral health can be a direct indicator of whole-body wellness. Recent medical breakthroughs link the bacteria and inflammation found in the mouth to conditions of the heart, brain, and endocrine system. Through up-to-date reviews of medical history, medications, and recent illnesses, we get a better understanding of how your oral and overall health interrelates.

Uncompromising 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).

Expertise and Training
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.

A Foundation of Trust
A trusting relationship with our patients is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about dental appointments, and we are eager to provide personalized service for each patient and give them a positive experience unlike any dental visit they have experienced.
