Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." We strive to provide “periodontal health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine SPT's, daily OHI of brushing and flossing, periodontal probings and digital x-rays help prevent further periodontal disease and breakdown. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). We will be happy to provide a tour of our sterilization area.
Training & Expertise

We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continuing education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
