We Conduct a Careful Study of Each Patient.
When a patient visits our office for the first time, we ask about their dental and medical history, dietary habits, and more. This helps us to diagnose the patient's dental issue and provide suitable treatment. We feel it's important to:

  • Take time listening to your concerns and expectations
  • Review your complete dental and medical history
  • Take X-rays of your mouth
  • Discuss with you different treatment options
  • Go over the costs associated with each of the different treatment options
