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 

 like what they see before final decisions are made.

 DOING WHAT'S BEST- we go far beyond making this claim.  We will show

 you the insights on your own x-rays that allow you to critique the work in your

mouth. Learning is empowering.  It not only lets you critique problems,

but also enables appreciation of excellence. 

Historically, gentle dentists have always enjoyed

great popularity with patients because everyone  appreciates the

little things we do to avoid unnecessary discomfort. 

In fact, mentoring dentists will often prioritize

 that "patients don't know if your crown margins are good,

or your filling is sealed- they mostly remember if you've hurt them or not." 

At 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 our gorgeous crown margins and sealed fillings --because we

know they last longer and we're proud of our commitment to excellence.
