OPTIMAL DENTAL HEALTH IS A JOINT RESPONSIBILITY between the patient and the dentist. If you will work with us, we can assist in providing you with a healthier mouth now and in the future. Without your help, we cannot promise that you will remain free of dental disease. Our office will encourage regular preventive dental care. Dental problems found and treated early save you time, discomfort and money. However, the responsibility of returning for this treatment lies with you. When you return for your periodic visit, please advise our staff of any changes in address, telephone number, marital status, employment, or insurance coverage.
OUR HYGIENE DEPARTMENT offers the patient the most important part of dental treatment in preventing disease before it starts or before it becomes a major undertaking. Our dental hygienists are fully trained, licensed and registered with the State of Florida. They provide dental cleanings, periodontal treatments, fluoride treatments, brushing and flossing instruction, and coach plaque control techniques.
ALL PATIENTS ARE ORIENTED IN THE PRACTICE BY A THOROUGH EXAMINATION. If treatment is needed, we discuss the estimate and options of care. At the completion of the orientation or treatment you will be placed on aced on a suitable periodic examination and prophylaxis, so that we may help you maintain your mouth in a state of health for your lifetime.
OFFICE HOURS ARE TUESDAY - THURSDAY, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM. We reserve limited time each day so that emergency patients may be scheduled. If you have a problem requiring emergency treatment, please call us as early in the day as possible. Emergency patients can be seen the same day, by calling (941) 366-1717; after hours (941) 284-1775.
