Our Philosophy

Below are our top beliefs and to the best of our ability, we attempt to live these beliefs day in and day out.

  • That all who enter our practice will be treated with respect and dignity
  • That each person who enters will be treated as an individual, with unique goals and desires.
  • That given the correct information within a caring relationship, we will make decisions about our health that are in our best interests.
  • That each individual should know:
  • The state of their oral conditions
  • The choices for treating those conditions
  • The consequences of those choices
  • The cost of the treatment prior to beginning
  • That our teeth are meant to last a lifetime.
  • That in general, all dental disease is preventable.
  • That it is better to prevent than to treat a problem.
  • That it is better to treat the cause and not just the symptoms of a problem.
  • That the health of the mouth can affect the overall health of the body.
  • That we are responsible for our own health.

Making a Difference

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.Approaching the boy, he asked, what are you doing?

The youth replied, Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.

Son, the man said, don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!

After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said… I made a difference for that one.
