What is unique about your practice?
We are an all-inclusive, comprehensive care practice and pride ourselves on being able
to offer all oral care services, under one roof. We deliver clinical excellence in a comfortable and relaxing environment, and make every effort to see that each visit is an exceptional experience. We do our best to ensure all dental needs can be taken care of by our
team, which provides helpful continuity of care and promotes patients’ understanding of
what their treatments are and why they’re being performed. We are able to tackle the root
of any problem as opposed to just patching things up and in doing so, create beautiful
smiles and an oral environment that promotes systemic health.
We set time aside to be thorough, to educate our patients and answer any questions
or concerns. With our combined experience—and fully digital of;ce—we are able to incorporate the latest techniques and technology into our patients’ treatment, ensuring they’re
getting the best of what is available.
What is something your patients should know about you?
We are both incredibly passionate about what we do and who we do it for. We also share
the same philosophy that dentistry is the perfect unison of artistry and science. The way
a mouth or smile looks can make incredible differences in appearance, but it’s important to remember the mouth is the gateway between the body and the external world. A
healthy mouth is the ;rst step to maintaining systemic health for your body. Dentistry is
a profession that allows your personality to show through your work. When done well, it
also helps showcase our patients’ personalities through their healthy, beautiful smiles.
