We will do everything possible to make your visits comfortable. Our goal is to provide you with a highly professional service in a relaxed and friendly manner. As a general family practice, we treat patients of all ages. We offer a full range of treatments including crown and bridgework, cosmetic dentistry, dentures and periodontal treatment. Complete oral examinations including examination for oral cancer and periodontal disease, fillings, tooth whitening, sealants and selective root canal treatments. We offer a number of products, which we believe in, that promote better dental health and fresher breath. It is our goal to provide you with the best possible dental care, so that you may attain the optimum dental health and oral hygiene for yourself. We look forward to working with you in order to achieve this. On your first visit, provided you do not have an emergency, a permanent dental record will be started. You will complete a health and dental questionnaire, and we will record your dental condition. This information is vital to your care. We will take any necessary X-rays and do a complete oral examination, including checking the soft tissues for any signs of disease. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, such as injury, discoloration or infection a child should be seen for his or her first visit at about the age of three. As a general rule, we find it better if the parents remain in the reception room during their child's appointments. Our main concern is that the child feels relaxed and happy with the office environment. Provided we can get the childs co-operation a polishing of the child's teeth will be done at this time. The results of this examination will be discussed with the parents and subsequent visits arranged if needed. We encourage the use of fluoride for the prevention of cavities. The topical application of fluoride will benefit the existing teeth. Also the home use of toothpaste containing fluoride and various rinses that we offer are recommended. Appointments: As much as possible, appointments are made to fit into your schedule, as well as ours. If you are unable, however, to keep a scheduled appointment, please notify the office 48 hours in advance of your appointment time.
