Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal oral health. In today's world, there are many legitimate concerns regarding disease transmission. Please rest assured that our office takes this issue very seriously. 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. Our staff members are educated in the current accepted and recommended practices and standards for Infection Control and have completed current continuing education courses.
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 ADA (American Dental Association), the AAP (American Academy of Periodontology), the CDC (Center for Disease Control), and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). We often exceed these standards as infection control is taken very seriously today.
Training & Expertise
As your Periodontal health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your teeth, bone and gums healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continuous 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 periodontal care. Also, being members and participating in professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession. For example, we provide Laser Treatment to optimize bone and soft tissue management, typically with reduced discomfort and improved healing compared to traditional approaches.

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
