Prevention is much more cost effective than treatment that is required from inconsistent care. I really encourage patients to have regular dental care to minimize the severity of the dental disease process.
Technology has become a major part of my modern practice. Cerec Technology allows me to create crowns on the same appointment with incredible accuracy. I have spent many hours not only learning the technology, but have been teaching the technology to other dentists not only locally, but nationally at various venues as well as on-line.
Different patients have different priorities in dental care and I attempt to determine not only what needs treatment, but how the patient would like it treated, by providing options for treatment.
