Help & Maintain
I want to help you maintain, achieve, or progress towards a healthy, comfortable and complete life.
Your teeth and mouth are the port of entry for nutrition, the port of exit for communication, and the billboard of your health, self concern and personality.
My Role is to Help You:
- Alleviate infections, abscesses and cavities, -feel better and avoid medical problems.
- Strengthen weak and deficient teeth in your chewing mechanism along with replacing missing teeth in order to distribute the forces of chewing. -eat Hershey's with almonds, peanut M & M's, popcorn kernels, steak, and corn on the cob, etc.
- Achieve an appearance that is pleasant, natural and free from obvious defects and deficiencies. -smile, talk, interview and fill date book. I will clearly show and explain conditions of your mouth by using radiographs, models and a little camera so you can see your teeth magnified on a television screen. I will present treatment options that are clear, planned out, logical, and illustrated by the use of models and photographs. I will recommend the most durable, stable, and predictable treatment, and inform you of the risks and consequences of accepting less stable treatment. Options and prices are given to you on a printed piece of paper. My fees are fair, reasonable, straight forward and without surprise. My patients enjoy the ease in which they travel to, park, and enter into my office. A ramp is available to help those with a wheel chair or walker. My staff and I strive to make your dental experience as easy, clear and comfortable as possible. I enjoy working with and helping people and I try to treat everyone in a fair, honest and straight forward manner. I hope to see you soon in my office.
