  • Digital billing
  • Digital appointment confirmations

We are always looking for ways to become more sustainable.  Our planets future depends on us being conscious of the procedures and products we use on a daily basis.  Our goal is to continue to reduce our footprint and continue to provide our patients with great dentistry and service.

    Not only that ! We are on the way to practicing a more holistic approach to dentistry. That means looking at you as a WHOLE person- nutrition based ~ Why do some people continue to get cavities at every visit?? This has to do with pH of the mouth. Certain medications and nutrient deficient people have a more acidic mouth. That makes the environment more prone to getting cavities. We are investigating Practicing SAFER amalgam removal to protect YOU and our team members.
