Patient education

Educating our patients is essential to their long term oral health. Our primary mission whether it is your first visit to our office or whether you have been part of our family for many years is to always share with you any relevant dental concerns or conditions we may come across during your examination. Dental treatment should only begin once the patient fully understands their condition, the consequences of not treating their condition and the benefits and risks associated with any treatment option of their condition.

Below is a variety of common oral condition we regularly come across and the treatment options available to these conditions.
