You will feel relaxed and comfortable with our staff and environment. You will have peace of mind that you are in the safe hands of a QIP Nationally Accredited Dental Practice. Your first appointment begins with us discussing your needs and concerns. This is followed by a full checkup of your mouth including gums, teeth and soft tissue. We screen for oral cancer in all our patients. If xrays are needed, we take them on spot with our digital xray machines.
