Patient Experience

We don't fix teeth, we fix lives.
OK, we know this is really corny, but this represents our approach to dentistry. Certainly, we can fill a cavity, but we hope to address your overall well-being in a fun, relaxed environment to reduce your stress and to provide you with the best dental experience possible. Your first visit to our practice usually involves a comprehensive examination performed by one of our dentists. The doctor will discuss your medical history; please make sure you can provide current information including medication, dosages, and frequency, including over-the-counter and prescription strength medicines - this really makes a difference!
