Mission Statement

It is the Mission of this dental practice to help our patients maintain their natural dentition via preventive measures. We are born with a very good dental system in place. Our teeth are made of the hardest material in the human body, but they are also placed into one of the most bacteria laden areas of the human body. These bacteria cause dental decay and periodontal disease. This makes removing bacterial plaque from our teeth the most important thing we do to keep our teeth in great condition. We teach you how to remove the plaque in a number of ways with differing means and methods.

If problems arise with dental structure via bacterial action or fracture due to chewing forces or accident, we attempt to repair these problems using the most modern restorative methods and materials in the most conservative way possible, restoring your oral condition to the best condition that we can.

With hard work on your part to prevent dental issues, and hard work on our part to take care of dental issues when they arise, we work together as a team to make sure your dental structures provide the chewing function throughout your life.
