Making sure you have healthy, strong teeth over a lifetime
We realize that dental surgery such as implants or grafts can be a very anxiety-inducing experience. Though we offer pharmaceutical methods of reducing anxiety, we feel that the Doctor's chair-side manner, and understanding of the patient's fears go much further.
Our mission is to give you care not just for what is bothering you today, but to give you the fundamental understanding of your oral health, and the tools to give you a lasting smile for the decades to come. Some say life is short....it is not, life is very long. There is a lot of wear and tear your teeth will undergo. Make sure that not only are the teeth in great shape, but the foundations (Bone and Gum Tissue) are healthy so they can support your teeth during your lifetime.
