Patient Education and Prevention

Education is Paramount to Health

SS monkey grinningPatient education is a very important part of our responsibility to you, our patient. Beyond a thorough examination and diagnosis, our goal is to educate each patient as to their condition as well as the potential treatment choices. We will explain the pros and cons of all the various alternatives. Our technology, especially the surgical microscope, is very helpful in showing patients what we see as well as educating them to the conditions in their mouth. We also have computer-generatedIMG_0459 patient education programs that can describe the many dental procedures that we perform. Our goal is to have each patient doing the best that they can at home to create health in their mouths. We also want to partner with the patient in their responsibility to take care of themselves.

What are the conditions in your mouth?
