Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. van der Ven "At South Sound Oral Medicine, we believe in collaborative care and take time to carefully listen to our patients' needs and concerns. A thorough history and exam help lead to an accurate diagnosis on which to base a treatment plan. We do not take a one size fits all approach in helping our patients. (Please note! We are not a general dentistry or an oral surgery practice. Oral Medicine entails the non-surgical diagnosis and management of problems that fall between medicine and dentistry.)"
