What distinguishes our practice?

 

Dr. Fitzpatrick has a strong belief in caring for all patients in need of periodontal care. Our office is eager to work with your dental insurance benefits to allow you to achieve optimal periodontal care. We are also dedicated to maintaining your natural teeth and provide treatment options for you. At the first appointment any treatment recommendations will be explained so that you will be able to make an informed decision. Dr. Fitzpatrick has been trained in periodontal regenerative therapy to help patient’s retain their natural teeth as well as implant treatment. Our goal is for the patient to leave the office with a better understanding of their individual needs and recommended treatment to improve their dental health and function.

We are a periodontal practice devoted to preventing the onset of gum disease (periodontal disease); diagnosing conditions affecting the gums and jawbone; and treating gingivitis, periodontitis, and bone loss.  Periodontal disease is a progressive condition and the leading cause of tooth loss among adults in the developed world.

High Standards

A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve.  We provide comprehensive treatment planning and expert knowledge in Periodontics to achieve your optimal dental health.  Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we truly believe that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health.  We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”; that’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking X-rays when necessary. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control in our office is also very important to us.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Training & Expertise

As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians.  We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy.  To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning.  We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care.  Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.

A Positive Experience

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success.  We understand how uneasy some patients can feel about their dental visits, and we know that we can make a difference by providing a relaxing and positive experience.  Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.
