What makes their Office rather unique is their comprehensive approach in evaluating and in treatment. A single tooth alone cannot walk through their doors. People do. What may be perceived as a tooth problem may have started as a gum (periodontal) problem, or a bite problem, or a problem from bad habits. They evaluate the entire craniomandibular system: your teeth, gums, bone, ligaments, jaws joints, and musculature. How all of those parts work together bio-mechanically is often left as clues on your teeth and in your gums. It makes a simple treatment plan simpler, and clarifies the more complex treatment plan. All of this is done so we may educate you on your oral health, and offer you options and solutions to fit our care into your lifestyle.

Office hours are by appointment only. They are open evenings and weekends. Their Orthodontist treats patients Wednesday afternoon and evening. Their Office is warm, quaint, and friendly. The atmosphere is jovial. They try not to take themselves too serious. The staff is second to none. They are the most integral part of their practice. Their proficiency and expertise allow the doctors to spend more time with you. Simply put, they are a family. And the family extends an invitation to meet yours!
