At Embrace Dental Care we believe you want to be healthy and have control over your dental health. We are pleased to meet you wherever you are in your dental health and life’s journey. We believe a healthy and attractive smile adds to your quality of life and studies have shown that people with their natural teeth live longer lives.

We are strongly committed to prevention.

We will help you feel more in control of your dental health. If you have big problems, comprehensive treatment may be required and we love helping people with significant dental problems when the need arises. We will help you achieve the best oral health you are capable of by communicating effectively, helping you learn how to prevent dental disease, and by providing beautifully crafted dentistry.

The first step to greater dental health is often the comprehensive examination.

During this examination, we will spend some time to get to know you and understand what your goals and concerns are. Once we understand what is important to you, we can recommend appropriate x-rays, digital photographs and any additional necessary diagnostics such as molds of your teeth to help us come up with the most appropriate plan for you. The comprehensive examination takes approximately 90 minutes. We will gather all of the information we need to understand your needs and I will review it after your appointment to ensure nothing has been missed.

Then at your next appointment, we will review your findings so that you understand the conditions present in your mouth and give you options to help you achieve your goals. Often people will choose to have their teeth cleaned at this appointment as well.

I love helping people get healthy and it is very rewarding for me.

I have found that a high percentage of people have a significant learning event during the process and feel more in control of their dental health. This is really fun for me as I place a high value on learning which can be a spark to greater dental health. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals.
