When we produce more, more patients are getting healthier and will live longer! Team Culture: Sweet Girls Who Look After Each Other Celebrate Wins Positive: We praise each other in front of patients! Each Team Member is Equally Respected and Valued. Upbeat Everyone chips in to help the team stay on schedule. No one likes drama: dentistry and patients are drama enough! Encourage each other and Look for ways to build each other up We like to laugh! Practice Treatment Philosophy: The Doctor believes in preventive dentistry and bringing potential problems to patient’s attention ASAP. We try to keep patients in prevention mode as much as possible with small things with a big return on investment like Fluoride and Sealants for all our patients. We believe the research about the oral-systemic connection and that regular preventive care can add 10 years to a patient’s life. We are not a “wait and see” dental office. This is unethical. As soon as we see a tooth crack, we are obligated to let the patient know what we see, and offer to treat that crack or problem with the smallest intervention and best prognosis possible. The longer we “wait and see,” the more damaged and sick a tooth can get, the more tooth structure a patient can lose, and the more expensive the treatment will be. Our patients deserve to know at the earliest sign of dental disease or problem and have the opportunity to fix it as early as possible. At the same time, the Doctor is conservative. We don’t jump into root canal therapy unless a tooth tests positive on multiple tests because that’s more invasive. We always try to solve the dental pathology at the lowest level possible with the most predictable outcome. Our goal is to save as much tooth as possible. We also believe that patients deserve to know the most ideal dental treatment available, and then let the patient choose what is best for him or her. If finances are a barrier to ideal treatment, we aim to help them get the next best alternative treatment possible. We are healers and problem solvers, and we believe our patients deserve the best! We treat our patients like we would treat our family.
