Reason #1 Why We’re the Best of the Best: Dental Care for the Whole Family

No matter your age, you can come to our office and receive excellent dental care. We provide care to patients aged 2 months all the way to 104 years old!
Our hygienists and doctors know how to work with toddlers and how to make them feel comfortable coming to the dentist. We also know how to work with patients with special needs. And with patients who don’t feel respected at other offices.
If you’re an adult who’s ashamed of how your mouth looks, or are afraid of the dentist, or who hasn’t been to the dentist in awhile, we also know how to work with you. You will not feel judged.
To us you are not a number or a statistic, and we don’t have quotas that need to be met. We treat you and respect you as the person you are.
Reason #2 Why We’re the Best of the Best: We Love Teenagers!

Teenagers and young adults may be wearing braces, and may need to figure out whether their wisdom teeth can descend comfortably or if they need to be extracted.
Our hygienists do a great job around braces, and advise our pre-teen and teen patients on how best to prevent cavities while wearing them.
We also fabricate mouthguards to protect teeth and soft tissue from damage while teenagers are engaging in sports and other activities.
Our doctors monitor the emergence of wisdom teeth, and if their extraction is advised, we even do it in our office using conscious sedation. That may involve pills taken before the procedure and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) in the treatment room, in addition to local anesthesia.
Teenagers who take good care of their teeth and gums will reap health benefits for the rest of their lives. We are proud to help them do that!
Reason #3 Why We’re the Best of the Best: Excellent Adult Dental Care

No matter the state of your mouth, as a new patient in our practice your first visit with one of our hygienists will be a full mouth evaluation. We will review your medical and dental history, take your blood pressure, update or take new x-rays, evaluate your gums (full perio charting), and (coming soon!) perform a Wellness Scan (full mouth digital imaging).
Then, one of our dentists will review your chart, listen to what your priorities are, and recommend next steps.
Next steps could be as simple as coming in for cleanings every 6 months. Or, if you have cavities or missing teeth, restorative work with one of our experienced dentists. Or, if you have gum disease, periodontal treatment with one of our outstanding hygienists (one of whom speaks Spanish). We will explain and give you choices about how to fix any problems, and we will respect your choices.
We want you to be healthy. For us it’s not only about the beauty of your smile, but also about the health of your body. For us, it’s about you considering the dental care you receive from us to be truly excellent.
Reason #4 Why We’re the Best of the Best: We Love Older Adults!

We understand the unique challenges that come with age, including the care of your teeth and gums. As we age, we become more susceptible to gum disease and tooth decay, and it becomes even more important to visit the dentist regularly.
Pockets in the gums grow bacteria that can affect your whole body’s health. Diabetes, heart conditions, and artificial joints can be adversely affected by bacteria in the mouth. Bone loss resulting from periodontal disease can make it hard to get a dental implant or bridge if you ever need one. Additional bone loss may cause teeth to fall out.
We will never make you feel like you’ve waited too long to take care of your teeth, or that it’s not worth it. We even offer a special Periodontal Dental Health Club membership
that can help with the expenses.
Whether you need regular cleanings, periodontal care, or restorative work, we’ll make sure that you’re seen, heard, and feel comfortable during every visit in our office.
Reason #5 Why We’re the Best of the Best: We Love Children!

Many of the children who come to our practice are the children and grandchildren of patients who we’ve been seeing for decades!
Our hygienists and doctors know how to work with toddlers and how to make them feel comfortable coming to the dentist.
During the first visit, your toddler will get a “ride” in our ez-glide chair before we count and take pictures of their teeth. If they’re feeling a little apprehensive, then they can sit on your lap while we work in their mouth. They can also watch you receive dental care, so that they know what to expect.
If your child is older, just like our adult patients, they will have control over their visit. We’ll let them pick the flavor of prophy (polish) paste and fluoride, and we won’t force them to do anything they’re afraid of. We build their trust so that, at their next visit, they won’t be as scared.
On Facebook we’re now expanding on the theme “Why We’re the Best of the Best: We Serve the Underserved.”
