Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kempf "My intention is to try and treat everyone as I would like to be treated.  My time is best spent  diagnosing my patients and effectively implementing the care  and treatment that  the patient  truly  desires...  I honestly  wish to do no more and no less dentistry than what  the patient wants me to do.  

We attempt  always to be good listeners, and to distance ourselves  from the "cookie cutter" or "mill" approach, which we see in many dental offices today..

Having said that, it is of particular pride and satisfaction (and humbleness) when we can reflect  on a patient that has chosen for health and (or) esthetic reasons, to enter into comprehensive restorative care, and make a helpful change, improving the quality of life of the patient... "

A tooth had gone bad and was scheduled for extraction. So a friend recommended that I consult with Dr. Michael Kempf. With his strong understanding of dental technology, Dr. Kempf healed the tooth. It no longer needs to be extracted. I am very happy with the service.

Thanks to Dr. Kempf, I'm less bashful about showing my smile. I used to have poor oral health, bleeding when I brushed, and other issues that kept me from smiling as much. From my very first visit, my teeth felt healthier, especially when I follow Dr. Kempf's instructions. Now, I feel more free to...more
