Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bivins "My understanding of a relationship between myself and patient is that we work together to accomplish a desired goal.  My principal roll is to provide the patient with accurate information about their condition and diagnosis.  That usually includes defining options of treatment that are available.  As an orthodontist, my skills include a variety of very specific orthodontic procedures which are tailored to each patient.  I give my best effort in applying my skills, experience and advanced technologies to each individual patient, and listen to their needs and expectations  My patients time and comfort are top priorities."
