Expertise matters as does technology. As dentists we owe our patients a duty to be competent and to use up to date equipment, materials and techniques.
However, I believe that what is even more important is the way we apply our know-how and technology to meet your needs. In our office, your well-being is paramount.
Informed decision making
In our office we take the position that YOU the patient are the one who is in the best position to decide what is best for your situation. With this in mind, we strive to present to you all the possible options (not merely the ones available in our office, our personal favorites or the ones that cost the most) to manage your oral health condition.
Minimally invasive dentistry
This treatment philosophy is based on a few concepts
Natural tooth substance (enamel and dentine) is the best, most durable structure we can have as tooth substance.
All dental restorations (fillings, crowns, root canal treatments, implants, bridges, dentures etc.) are interim and will require replacement or repair eventually.
With these 2 concepts in mind we seek to
preserve tooth substance wherever possible and practical
In seeking to minimize loss of tooth substance we are aided by the use of
adhesive dentistry and bonding
prevention of caries
Stopping caries from progressing into cavities
prevention of gum disease and gum disease progression
We view each patient as a unique individual with circumstances and considerations (for example social considerations and financial circumstances) and not as a set of teeth and gums to be fixed.
I believe in seeking the most cost-effective solution for you the patient.
Cost effectiveness is not the same as cheap. A "cheap" solution that does not last or will lead to bigger problems in the future is not really cheap at all.
