There is a reason that you have called to see us. We want to help. Our patients are like family and we want the best for them.
The first visit provides an opportunity to get to know you and establish what you would like to achieve in terms of long-term dental health. You may have an immediate problem that needs to be addressed and this will be attended to as soon as is feasibly possible.
Besides the specific issue at hand, most patients are unaware of how to achieve long-term dental health. We are here to provide you with the appropriate treatment plan in a warm and caring atmosphere.
We will guide you to make the right choice of treatment. You will be empowered to be involved in the treatment planning.
We look forward to meeting with you and working with you.
A complete diagnosis and treatment plan involves gathering records which may include x-rays, diagnostic study casts, a possible CBCT scan and a treatment planning consultation. This will then incur costs. All this will be discussed with you in advance and will require your consent.
A smile doesn’t just indicate healthy teeth and gums; your dental health also plays a significant role in how confident you feel. Think about it… If you are self-conscious about your smile, you’re not going to feel very good about interacting with others.
Research shows that the better you feel about your looks, the better you feel about yourself. You can be more relaxed, being in the moment and able to laugh joyfully. You feel more confident and radiant.
The fact that smiling itself boosts your mood has a further positive impact because smiling has a contagious effect.” When you smile, others are more likely to smile back and are more drawn to you, thereby increasing your confidence and happiness even more. Most people are not aware of how important a smile is in how perceive them or in how they feel about themselves”, says psychologist Ann Demarais, Ph.D.
Have you ever sat for a meal at home or in a restaurant and had to decline the serving because of a tooth problem ?

How many people have you seen cover their mouths with their hand to deal with an irritating dental problem? That is not pleasant and shouldn’t be.
Let’s help you have a comfortable set of teeth.
