Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Information and education are the keys to good health. Just as we believe in continuing education for ourselves, we recommend that our patients learn about their dental health. We are always happy to discuss your care with you, and we will never perform a procedure until you’ve been informed about the procedure we are treating and have given us your approval to proceed.
If you have a question, take a look at this selection of questions we are often asked about our practice, the services we offer, and dentistry in general.
