Our Dental Philosophy
Teeth are Made to Last
It is policy of this office to retain all teeth, if possible.
Through improved techniques provided by Dental Research
most people can retain all of their teeth, if they follow
a proper plan of oral hygiene, good nutrition and regular
The Importance of Oral
Dentists have been telling patients to brush and floss
their teeth after meals for years. These same patients
keep coming back for routine examinations only to find
that they have more dental disease. Most people brush
but few floss regularly. We are working hard to educate
our patients how they can eliminate tooth and gum disease.
Recent research has shown that these diseases can be controlled
and we are here to help!
We have dedicated ourselves to the prevention of dental
disease and consider treatment secondary. Unless we are
controlling the cause of the disease, it is futile to
be chasing the results. The treatment of dental disease
is a very necessary service but the prevention of the
disease before damage occurs is our primary goal.
Lower Dental Bills
Those patients who follow our program of control will
have fewer cavities, less gum disease and lower dental
bills. It is the intent of this office to see that our
young patients graduate from high school with all of their
teeth and a minimum of restorations (fillings).
Dental insurance is intended to cover some, but not all
of the cost of your dental care. Most plans include co-insurance,
a deductible and other expenses which must be paid by
If you have dental insurance, please bring your plan information,
including your insurance card to your first visit. We
will work with you to assure that you receive the maximum
benefits to which you are entitled.
As a service to you, we will file most of your insurance
claims for you. This is done by our staff daily, in order
to expedite payment on claims.
A Word About Fees
We make every effort to keep down the cost of your dental
care. Our fee for each procedure is based on the service
rendered and the time required for its accomplishment.
We believe this is the only way to establish a fair fee,
both to the patient and the dentist. We are confident
you will find our fees value oriented and in keeping with
the quality of the personal and professional services
Staying With The Times
Our staff has had the finest training and prides itself
in staying with the "times" so that we may provide
our patients with the finest Dentistry available. Our
primary purpose is one of prevention. We are here to help
make you aware of how this can be accomplished. We will
see to it that you are comfortable at all times during
a dental procedure, from the day you enter our office,
to the day your treatment is completed.
We would like to thank you trusting with your dental health.
We are certain you will be rewarded with a lifetime of
good dental health.
We hope our efforts and philosophy will result in the
greatest compliment a patient can make; the referral
of a friend or relative to our practice.
