Our process is simple:

Evaluation- No matter the condition of your dental health, you’ll receive a thorough examination, and you’ll know the options for rehabilitating your mouth. There’s no lecturing or judgment here, so no matter what you’ve done, or haven’t done, in regards to your teeth, you’ll get the best treatment options.

Treatment- Dr. Whitener has a broad set of professional skills, which means you come to the same office during your entire treatment plan. If a specialist is required, you will be referred to a proven practitioner.

You’ll have Dr. Whitener’s complete attention during your visits, because we don’t “stack” appointments on the schedule. Unless there is a patient requiring immediate attention for relief, he concentrates on you and your treatment.

Maintenance- Once your treatment is complete, you’ll enjoy the care delivered by our Hygiene staff. Dr. Whitener will also monitor your dental health, and make recommendations to keep your mouth healthy.
