When you visit, our first goal is to establish a feeling of trust. Our job is to listen to you, respect your feelings and concerns, and educate you, rather than judge your decisions. Our team understands that you may be anxious about the process of receiving dental care; therefore, they make it a point to carefully explain your proposed treatment plan, and they take their time to answer all of your questions. Only then will they take you through your treatment with the utmost of care. Modern dentistry has many techniques, local anesthetics, and relaxation methods to increase your comfort. The more involved you are in making your dental health decisions, the less room there is for fear and uncertainty.
