We treat our patients with special care.

Our philosophy is to provide the highest quality dental treatment to our patients in a caring, safe and comfortable manner. We make every effort to understand how you feel about your dental needs and to help each patient achieve their best.

About Us

Our doctors’ goal is to help their patients achieve optimum oral health and maintain it for their entire lifetime. To do this is a team effort including the doctor, the dental staff, and most importantly you, the patient.

A first visit to our office includes a thorough dental exam, cancer screening and necessary x-rays. It is also important to know what you expect from us. What are your dental concerns and your dental goals? Do you have pain or are you looking for that perfect smile?

Time will be spent to answer questions and to individualize your treatment options. Often there are many excellent treatment options and our goal is to find the one that is right for you.

We will provide you with information as to what the treatment entails, how long it will take, the investment involved, and how to maximize any dental insurance that you may have.

Our family of patients includes many who have been with us for over 20 years. We see many families that include the grandparents, children and grandchildren. We are truly a family practice and would like to include you as part of our family.
