Our Philosophy of Care

As partners in your dental health, we strive to improve your oral/systemic health relationship with every visit. We have a true passion for dentistry which thrives on teamwork and education. This is fulfilled by helping patients achieve and maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. Your mouth is the gateway to your body. The state of your oral health will influence the health of the rest of your body. You cannot separate them from each other. We strive to increase your personal oral health knowledge so that you may make healthier informed decisions. We can only help those that allow us in this partnership along the pathway to health. We provide recommendations for treatment specific to each patient’s needs.

Optimum oral health, and therefore, your systemic health, hinges on preventive dentistry. When disease and damaging conditions are caught in the earliest stages, many invasive procedures can be avoided. Your quality of life is dependent on your understanding and taking ownership of your current oral health condition and the ways to achieve optimal overall health, and making changes to move in the direction of achieving that health for your longevity. Oral health conditions have been linked to other health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, dementia, alzheimer’s, stroke, lung disease, rheumatoid arthritis, low birth weight babies, premature birth, fertility issues and erectile dysfunction.

When it comes to treating dental decay with a dental filling, you will never be offered silver amalgam fillings which contain mercury and can fracture natural tooth structure.

We use specific equipment to aid in removal of silver amalgam fillings for all of our safety.

When it comes to dental restorations including fillings, crowns and bridges, we will always opt for metal free. The majority of our crown and bridge cases are made out of zirconia, which offers superior strength, durability and esthetics.
