Will you be able to take care of all my dental needs?
Our goal is to always do what is best for you. As a general dental office, we do perform most of the dental treatment needs our patients require. Every day, we do dental exams, cleanings, fillings, crowns, bridges dentures, implant dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and a whole array of other treatments. We are also your source for information and answers to the questions you may have.
All that said, there are times where we feel your treatment will be better served by seeing a specialist. Dental specialists receive the same dental school education as every other dentist, but they continue on in their specialty program to get advanced training and experience far above the training a general dentist gets. Specialists will often have the most advanced technology in their field, and because it is all they do, they always keep up the with advances in treatment in their field. Essentially, whenever we feel a specialist can do a better job than us, we feel they should do it from the start. We don’t like to start something and then decide it should be finished by a specialist, although sometimes that happens as we are trying to treat emergencies or other unforeseen complications. We understand that patients don’t always want to get treatment by another office, but I always say “ if you need heart surgery, do you want a cardiologist doing it, or your general family doctor?” We always want what’s best for you.
So give us a call and set up an appointment so we can see what you need. We will then discuss your needs and come up with a plan together.
