When I started dental school, I had a mouth full of broken-off teeth. I was very embarrassed, to say the least. The shame I felt about my own dental problems led to my first rule when dealing with patients…NO GUILT. So, on your first visit here, there will be NO lectures. In fact, we’re going to celebrate that you made it to the first step of having a “Healthy and Carefree Smile”.
I graduated in 1980 from dental school at Loma Linda, CA. What I learned really quickly is that patients would rather be anywhere than in the dental office, so that led to rule 2. LESS DENTISTRY IS BEST DENTISTRY. So, we show you how to avoid coming to the dentist any more than you have to.
After 33 years in dentistry I have found that my happiest patients are the ones that stopped the destruction of dental disease and then fixed their teeth as ideally as possible. Then they can live mostly a carefree life as it relates to their teeth. It’s a great place to be!!!
