What Makes Me Different?
It is very important for me to share my philosophy of dentistry with my patients. My practice is relationship-based, meaning that my patients and I, not any insurance company, make decisions on what procedures are best for them. I am happy to provide documentation for my patients so that they can submit them for an insurance claim; however, it is important for my patients to understand that many procedures are not covered by insurance. It doesn’t mean that they are not necessary; it just means they are not covered. For this reason, I do not subscribe to any insurance plan and choose not to play the insurance game.
My practice and my patients are my passions. As such, it is my mission to provide you not only with professional dental service but also with a warm, welcoming environment. I promise to work together with you in developing a plan that will benefit both your dental health and your overall health. I also promise to stay dedicated in keeping up on the most current dental procedures in order to ensure that you’re getting the best dental treatment available.
