Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Goeckner " My philosophy is to treat all patients as if they were my family members, keeping dental health and function the priority. I try to engage each patient in their treatment so that they can appreciate the changes over time. Having orthodontic treatment as an adolescent, I can relate to a patient's experience from the initial interest in the first consultation to the awesome, rewarding feeling at the time appliances are removed.  I am excited for the opportunity to help you and your family discover the best, healthy smile possible. "
