All dentists are not alike. They have different skills, different technology, different training and different philosophies. As well, we understand that all patients are not alike. They have different wants, needs and desires. Our doctors all share the same value of developing long term relationships based on trust, shared mutual goals, setting realistic treatment timelines and budget realities.
Our doctors firmly believe that the best way to treat patients is to first arm them with all the information and options available at our disposal, filter through the hyperbole and google-based claims, and know all the pros and cons. Only then can sound knowledge-based decisions be made.
