Practice Philosophy

Communication is the key to good dentistry. We recognize that excellent communication can only occur in a relaxed and trusting environment where patients feel they are able to express their needs and concerns. My staff and I always take the time to ensure that patients understand every aspect of their dental care. At our local Calgary dentists office, dental treatment only begins after a comprehensive examination, including a complete medical and dental history, relevant x-rays and a thorough understanding of each patient’s dental needs and their desired outcomes. There are usually several treatment options. Patients are informed of the relative merits and costs for each option and are encouraged to ask questions while making their choices.

As a practice of General Dentistry, we offer comprehensive care to patients of varying ages our teeth cleaning, teeth whitening and all of our services are carried out by highly qualified general dentists. Dental health has been found to be closely linked to many medical conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, chronic lung disease, low birth weight and strokes. We are committed to providing dental care in a caring, non judgmental manner, focusing on each patient’s well being!
