All who enter our practice will be treated with dignity and respect.
Each person will be treated as an individual, with their own goals and desires.
We believe that, when given good information and the right support in a nurturing environment, people will make choices that have a positive effect on their dental health.
We believe that health is of infinite value.
Each individual deserves to know:
the state of their oral health
the choices for treating those conditions
the consequences of those choices
the cost of treatment prior to beginning
that our teeth are meant to last a lifetime (much more than a lifetime, actually)
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
the longer dental disease is allowed to advance, the larger the intervention needed to solve the problem
that the health of the mouth affects the overall health of the body
that we are responsible for our own health
