3 Levels of Care

We realize that selecting a new dentist and dental health team can be challenging, which can cause you to feel a bit uncertain. We would like to welcome you to our practice and share our beliefs about what we offer.

Our goal is to help each patient obtain the highest quality, personalized dental care to enhance their overall health and quality of life.

We help you become as healthy as you want to be. This greatly differs from the way we were trained. Rather than tell you how healthy you should be, we make every effort to help you understand your choices about your dental health, and let you decide what care you would like to receive. The three levels of care patients typically choose include:

Level 1 – Reactive Care

Patients at this level are generally only interested in solving more urgent problems and not in a comprehensive exam or long term planning.  In addition they typically want the treatment performed to be as inexpensively and efficiently as possible.

Level 2 – Proactive Care

Patients who choose this level of care generally want a thorough examination and want to be involved in the prevention of present and future dental problems.  Typically, however, they choose repair solutions that are not long term in nature.

Level 3 – Regenerative Care

Patients at this level have a high value for their dental health and appearance.  They desire a complete dental examination and have a desire to be informed of all findings and the potential consequences of each problem.  Ultimately they want to be involved in creating a long term master plan for their dental health which includes choosing the longest lasting solutions to their problems.
