Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ward "Proper understanding of your treatment is paramount in our office.  We make every effort to communicate your treatment options, consequences of treatment and non-treatment, and approximate treatment times and costs.  If you ever have any questions please feel free to ask.

Fear of the dentist has kept many people away from having the treatment they need and want.  It is our goal to make procedures as comfortable as possible. 

Restorations should return the tooth to its original form, function, and appearance whenever possible.  Amalgam fillings are not used in our office.

Prevention and early diagnosis of dental disease result in minimally invasive care. Regularly scheduled examinations and professional cleanings are important.  By methodical evaluations, treatment can be minimized and the lifetime of your teeth extended.

In addition to restoring teeth, we can enhance the appearance of your smile.  Elective procedures can dramatically improve your smile.  Careful evaluation and communication can provide the best results.  

New technologies designed to benefit the patient are employed by our office.  If a procedure can be more effectively performed resulting in a longer lifetime at a reasonable cost, it should be used.  Evidence-based treatment is the standard of care in our office."
