Expectations/Apprehension

We base our practice philosophy on taking care of our patients as individuals. This simple core commitment has guided our staff and doctors through each and every day for over 34 years. We speak here to the method of delivery or our services, beyond providing just immediate dental care. This delivery includes helping our patients through any apprehension, even fear, they may have developed through previous dental experiences.

Little did Dr. Parker know, while literally being drug in terror from his second grade classroom to a series of dental appointments, that he would eventually become a dentist. His experiences as a patient throughout his youth were at best unpleasant and more accurately agonizing. He is committed to provide better for his patients.

Fortunately, both the technology and grace of delivery of dental services have advanced by light years since that time. Nonetheless, he will NEVER forget that feeling of helplessness. We strive to provide dental services with the highest level of empathy and will not lose focus on the goal of the highest level of patient comfort that is attainable. We do not want to be associated with even a trace of the negative experience Dr. Parker had as a youth.

On a case by case basis, we believe it is of equal importance to treat apprehension as we treat dental needs. Every patient is welcome during a preclinical consultation, with just themselves and the doctor, to discuss any apprehension before ever entering the treatment area of our office. At this time, such concerns are shared and the resolution begins. It is fully our philosophy to individualize each and every treatment plan, recognizing and resolving apprehension.
