RETURNING TO THE DENTIST

OPEN WIDE! 

You would be surprised by the number of people who put off regular trips to the dentist. How long has it been since your last dental exam? If it’s been a while, no worries, it happens… we all have reasons for putting it off. Perhaps you had a lapse in dental insurance. Maybe it’s thoughts of discomfort or a misconception that cleanings can be put off for another month without much consequence. Whatever your reasons are, please remember that it is a good thing to come back to a regular dental routine.

We have a unique way of approaching your return to the dentist. Before you even sit in a dentist chair, we start with a conversation over the phone. Then, we meet in my office. I consider these two conversations the most important part of your treatment. My entire team knows to give us this time undisturbed as we will immerse ourselves in learning about you and your mouth. During this discovery phase we establish a critical partnership that will be the foundation of your journey to a healthy smile. Your dental dreams are not unattainable. Together we will create a plan, make sure you are aware of how we will achieve your goals, and address anything that might get in the way. This process is important so I can determine where to focus when you are actually in the exam room.

It is my promise to give you the best possible care and to respect and honor your time. The connections we make and the customized solutions we design are what define my unique dental style. And this is why I love my job.  I welcome you to reach out if you’ve neglected your teeth recently. Together we can make your return to the dentist easy and comfortable.
