Your First Visit

On your first visit, we will ask you for personal data and health background information. This general information is designed to help us complete insurance forms or other correspondence. The health information provides a baseline history to aid us in providing quality dental care for you. Please keep us informed of any changes in your name, address, phone number, or insurance policies, and any changes in your general health or medications. Your personal information is always kept confidential. We follow the HIPAA guidelines as outlined by federal law.

First Things First

We provide a full range of technologically advanced dental services for all ages. Usually your first appointment will be for a dental cleaning by one of our excellent dental hygienists. Dr. Barry or Dr. Love will meet you and determine what initial concerns you have.

We Hear You

The process begins with listening to your concerns and goals. A thorough exam and records are obtained, and from this information an accurate diagnosis of existing and potential dental problems is determined. An individualized treatment plan of action is then formulated incorporating your specific goals and desires.

Treatment Planning

Dr. Barry or Dr. Love will meet in consultation to present treatment options and recommendations. You may take an active role in asking questions and making decisions about treatment acceptance. Most patients feel that they really understand their dental situation like never before because no one has ever invested the amount of time that we invest in you.

Premium Dentistry

Dentistry should not be a luxury, and our patients deserve the best. Premium dentistry allows you to enjoy peace of mind, improved appearance, a more youthful look, and increased the confidence that a healthy, beautiful smile can bring you. Dr. Barry and Dr. Love have the confidence, training, and experience to enhance your smile with the best, most technologically advanced restorative dentistry possible to preserve your future dental health. Most of the time, creative options can be devised to make the dentistry you deserve and desire affordable.

Conservation of Time

In the interest of conserving our patients’ time, we will try to complete treatment in as few visits as possible and make every effort to remain on schedule. We feel that our patients’ time is valuable and you can expect us to be prompt. We do our best to make appointment times convenient for you.

Conservation of Dollars

We do our best to adjust to our patient’s requirements in planning for the investment in optimum dental health. Therefore, we feel that it is our responsibility to inform all patients of the cost required for various treatment plans and, to the best of our ability, offer assistance in arranging payment.  Always feel free to discuss the fees of any proposed treatment.

A Trusting Relationship

In any strong doctor­-patient relationship, we find there must be complete trust between the individuals and total satisfaction with the service being provided. Therefore, if you have any questions or suggestions on things that could be done differently, we welcome the opportunity to answer your questions or discuss any matters with you. Only through open communication can the best dental care be provided.

We welcome you to our family and look forward to helping you get the healthy, beautiful smile you have always wanted.
