Mission Statement

Our mission is to help people first define and then ultimately achieve their personal goals for their health.

Philosophy of Practice

Paul Griffin Office Exterior

For patients to choose the most appropriate dental office to meet their individualneeds there must exist a match between the services sought by the patient and the services provided by the office.  If the value you possess for your teeth and health coincides with our beliefs in fine dentistry and prevention, a mutually rewarding relationship should evolve for both parties.  As a form of welcoming you and sharing our beliefs about how we serve patients, the following information is provided.

Briefly stated, our philosophy of practice is this…
Our desire is to help the people we serve achieve a higher level of health and self-esteem by enhancing the appearance, comfort, and function of their mouth.  We do this by providing dental care of the highest quality our patients can accept that is consistent with their dental needs and the value they hold for their own health.

A dental office is a small health-centered team of professionals dedicated to serving patients.  Other offices maintain certain minimal standards of skill and concern; however, we want an aura about us that unquestionably makes a statement of our quality of care.  To make this evident, we have committed to a particular kind of practice.  In a philosophical sense, basically one is devoted to either quantity (do a little for a lot of people) or to quality (optimal care on a long-term basis for regular patients).  We want to attract and keep patients who share our values and beliefs in excellence or can grow to this level of appreciation through education and motivation.  We seek a patient population dominated by people with high expectations of good health and happiness.

Examination Process

Excellence in dentistry begins with a careful diagnosis and treatment plan to move us toward the goals we will establish together called the Master Plan.  We will perform an extensive and comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums, bite, joints, and soft tissues.  When needed, and with your permission, we will utilize all appropriate x-rays.  If beneficial, we will use intra-oral photographs and plaster study models of your teeth and jaws to identify areas of concern.  We believe this in-depth examination to be thecornerstone of quality dentistry.

Maintenance of Traditional Values

In this country, at this time, the very foundation of dentistry is being tested.  This is because the government is becoming more involved in health care, insurance carriers are trying to dictate treatment and fees, and some dental clinics are strangely competing through coupons, extended hours, and bargain basement pricing instead of quality.

In light of these challenges, we believe that there has never been a better time for a practice dedicated to excellence in disease prevention, to service, and to providing quality long-term health care.  We find our emphasis on excellence to be highly rewarding to both our patients and to us.  We hope you agree and will join our family.
