What Would You Do?

Dental Examination

If It Were You?

Every day, patients ask us about their dental care. Should I have a crown or a filling? A root canal, or an extraction? Should we fix a “baby tooth?” Or will it just fall out? Is teeth whitening safe?

Often the final question we’re asked is, “What would you do if it were you?”

Our answer is always the same. Our recommendation to you is the same as if it were a member of our own family.

We have the newest materials and techniques that allow us to treat your teeth much more conservatively than ever before. And as we make recommendations for your oral health, know that you are being treated like family.

If you could look over our shoulders when we work, you’d see we use the same care, materials, and techniques on patients that we use on our own family members. It has always been this way—and always will be.
