Our Dental Philosophy

Integrity

We strive to be known as the practice that can be counted on for integrity. In every treatment and service, we live and work by a high moral and ethical code, providing honest recommendations, clear explanations and genuine care. We truly want what’s best for you and your family and can proudly stand behind the work we do.


Conservative Approach

Our caring doctors take a conservative approach to dentistry and will always keep your best interests in mind. They are ethically against over-diagnosing and strive to be as conservative as possible when treating their patients. They won’t push or pressure you into anything you don’t want or need. Rather, they will lay out all your options and help you make an informed, confident decision regarding your care.


Comfortable Environment

Our patients often comment on how much they enjoy our comfortable environment, with our friendly and caring staff. We always strive to have a positive and upbeat attitude and hope that you can feel like part of our practice family. Inside our office, you’ll also find a cozy waiting room with a fire, music and essential oil diffuser that will put you at ease. What else do we have for your comfort? Warm blankets, heated neck pillows, TVs and music during treatment, and take-home gift bags. Your comfort is truly a priority to us.


Comprehensive Services for All Ages

We take great pride in being able to meet nearly all of your family’s dental needs under one roof. Our services include everything from general and preventive dentistry to more complex services in cosmetic, endodontic, and restorative dentistry. Rarely do we have to refer out — we can treat the entire family, from infant to elderly, all in-house for your convenience.


Advanced Training & Technology

We invest in the latest dental techniques and technologies so we can deliver better and better service. Our skilled team participates in continuing education to stay up-to-date on the best dentistry available. Our advanced technologies include digital x-rays and charting, E4D same-day crown technology, TRIOS digital impressions, iCat 3D digital imaging and oral cancer screening, to name a few. Cutting-edge dentistry allows us to provide more accurate care, higher-quality results and a more comfortable experience for you and your family. We will continue to invest with you in mind.


Personalized Care

We have been serving this great community for over 45 years and love having the opportunity to serve families over generations. The personal relationships we build with our patients are what keep us coming to work each day. They also allow us to form a real understanding of each patients’ needs and provide personalized care on an individual level.
