OUR PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
We believe that you are the boss of you.
On your first visit to our office, you'll be sitting in an armchair - not a dental chair.
Think of it as the driver's seat.
Our clinical expertise is important. But not as important as your aspirations, preferences, and values. Everything we do - every treatment we recommend and every service we provide - will be guided by you.
Our job is to make sure that you're fully aware of every aspect of your dental health, and to meet your needs with compassion and excellence. Your job is to make the decisions that will drive our partnership.
So, before we find out what's in your mouth, we need to find out what's on your mind.
We'll sit down, one-on-one, and chat - about your lifestyle, your likes and dislikes, and your goals for your smile. Enriched by that knowledge, we'll develop a detailed diagnostic profile that will allow us to produce a comprehensive clinical snapshot of your smile. Depending upon your goals, precise 3D models of your teeth and gums, computerized bite recordings, photographs and x-rays may be obtained at this first visit.
Finally, we'll sit down together and discuss the treatment options available to get you from where you are to where you want to go. And you'll take it from there. We'll work with you to create the smile you want - in the context of your schedule, finances, and other key factors.
