About Us








Mission Statement

We will deliver the highest quality dental treatment possible, keeping the patient’s comfort and treatment decisions paramount.  We will strive for excellence in comprehensive diagnosis, effective communication with the patient, and thorough completion of our common goals.

We make an effort to eliminate surprises in regards to either treatment or the fees for the treatment.  In order to accomplish this we pledge the following:

1) Everyone will leave with a printed treatment plan complete with estimated fees

2) We will only schedule appointments after patients know what they are coming in for, how long it will take, and what the fee arrangements are
