To provide excellence in dental care with a caring empathetic environment expressed through our attention to detail and consideration toward individual needs.
Our vision is to make the patient-centered practice an accessible mainstream approach for dental care via the integration of patient preferences with the best dental science and clinical experience. This entails the patientís understanding/appreciation of treatment alternatives balancing both the risks and benefits with the short-term and long-term financial and biologic cost(s).
Treatment dictated by patient needs and desires maximizing predictable longevity and conservation of tooth structure where indicated, while offering alternative options to definitive treatment in the interest of respecting patient autonomy. Patient involvement through two-way communication and full disclosure is an essential ingredient in achieving patient satisfaction, minimizing confusion and fostering a long-term relationship through trust.
