“After practicing dentistry for thirty eight years, it has become clear that, developing lasting relationships with my patients not only improves our ability to tailor treatment specifically to your needs, but also makes the overall experience much more enjoyable. Yes, I said enjoyable. I know many of you may have had terrifying experiences at the dental office. I am here to tell you that it does not have to be that way. With the technology available today, careful and gentle hands, and for some, mild medications, we can make your dental experience enjoyable. Some of you may have been to dental offices where you have been rushed through treatment, had lengthy waiting periods, little time with the doctor, and inflexible payment policies. This is not the way we believe patients should be treated. We believe in customer service. And, because my office is small (only four treatment rooms), and because we work a relaxed but steady schedule, I am able to spend more time with my patients to discuss treatment or simply find out how your family is doing. This is my promise to you: I will give you the best that is humanly possible, whether it be dental treatment, advice regarding treatment or just sharing my time with you to make you comfortable. My staff will give you the most friendly service that you have ever seen in a dental office, and we will stand behind the quality and durability of our work, without the requirement of selling you a warranty (yes, dentists are doing this now). We value honesty and integrity above all in our work.”
