This content was provided by Dr. Estep "Ultimately my goal is to deliver the top dental care possible to you and your family and friends. I always have and always will strive to be the best at what I do and to deliver the best to my patients. I'm a "dental nerd" in that I invest my time and resources to attend the top continuing education courses in the nation (and in the world). This enables me to bring the very best techniques and technologies into my practice, and deliver them to my patients. My patients deserve the best, therefore I work hard to deliver just that.
When my patients walk into my practice, I want them to experience a sense of warmth and calm. So many people despise going to the dentist, and my practice is designed to reprogram people to LOVE coming to the dentist. Seriously. I'm not kidding.
To achieve this goal for my patients, I got rid of the smells and sounds of a typical dentist's office. I have a team of warm and friendly experts who devote their time and attention to you, the patient. For you this means no long waits, a pampering environment with amenities like noise-canceling headphones and ceiling TVs for you to enjoy during your visits.
I also want my practice to be the healthiest and safest practice in the marketplace. I invest in things like ULTRA low-dose x-rays, digital impressions, no-gag options for molds and x-rays, and minimally invasive treatments...not to mention my laser-focus on your health and the importance I place on the mouth-body connection and total wellness dentistry. I left the old-school (archaic and torturous) dentistry model in the past where it belongs.
I will educate you about your mouth and overall health, and I will offer you several options should you need treatment. I will get to know you and your family, and I will consider you situation and circumstances when I customize my recommendations for you and your family. I love what I do, and I consider it a privilege to be allowed to care for people like you. This naturally shows in my chair-side manner, my gentle expertise, and my dedication to delivering the best for you.
In a nutshell -- I give you and your family the same treatment I want for my kids, my husband, and myself."
