ASK A QUESTION


PATIENT EDUCATION

A visit to the dentist's office can be an intimidating experience. As with other medical disciplines, dentistry employs a vocabulary that may not be familiar to those outside the field. The Patient Education section strives to inform patients of dental terms and procedures.

In addition, the Patient Education has instructional videos on how to improve your dental health.
