Our Commitment to Excellence

More than just a commitment

Excellence is a relative term.  Our definition of excellence includes

autonomy, comfort, esthetics, and doing what's best.


AUTONOMY- means you will be the boss.  Whether at the examination,

cleaning, or restorative appointment, we insist that each appointment

only move forward when you are ready, completely informed, and have

made the final decision yourself.


COMFORT- we are all different and face varying levels of challenges to

our health.  We will ensure that you control the pace and take all the

breaks you need.  In addition, we offer blankets, pillows, headphones

and nitrous oxide, and take many extra steps to ensure that your

comfort level is as high as possible during each treatment.


                                                                                                                           ESTHETICS- beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  We only use the most   

                                                                                                                           esthetic materials available, and will ensure that your eyes and our eyes and                                                                                                                     like what they see before final decisions are made.


                                                                                                                           DOING WHAT'S BEST- we go far beyond making this claim.  We will show                                                                                                                  show you the insights on your own x-rays that allow you to critique the                                                                                                                     the work in your mouth.

                                                                                                                           Learning is empowering.  It not only lets you critique problems, but also                                                                                                                    also enables appreciation of excellence.  Historically, gentle dentists have                                                                                                                   have always enjoyed great popularity with patients because everyone                                                                                                           everyone appreciates the little things we do to avoid unnecessary                                                                                                     unnecessary discomfort.  In fact, mentoring dentists will often prioritize that                                                                                                                     that "patients don't know if your crown margins are good, or your filling is                                                                                                                         is sealed- they mostly remember if you've hurt them or not."  At Gentle                                                                                                                Gentle Healthy Smiles, we insist that you have the best of both worlds- we                                                                                                                      we don't have to compromise our results to be gentle.  We will show you                                                                                                                     you our gorgeous crown margins and sealed fillings --because we know                                                                                                                  know they last longer and we're proud of our commitment to excellence.
