The people at West Shore Family Dentistry are committed to providing the best dental care for our patients. We start with our doctors who are continually taking advanced courses in dentistry to improve their skills and knowledge. Because of this knowledge, you do not have to be referred out for most of the specialty care, rather, our doctors can perform root canals, extractions to include wisdom teeth, dentures and partials, implants, crown and bridge, periodontics, snoring and sleep apnea dental appliances,limited orthodontics, pediatric care, and TMJ disorders. They are also compassionate and understanding and will help make your dental experience as enjoyable as possible. Our staff likewise is committed to providing that same enjoyable experience. Their professional, friendly nature will help you feel at ease. Because we are a family dentist, we treat all ages and can be the dentist for the entire family. We treat children from 3 years of age and will work with the child to complete most dental procedures. Because we do not put children asleep, we refer out those children with extensive work or who are extremely apprehensive. Prevention for children is our strength. Our skilled dental hygienist will educate the children on brushing, flossing, and food chokes. This education started at an early age with consistent 6 month recall will help prevent a lifetime of possible tooth decay and dental problems. This same emphasis on prevention is seen on all our patients. If we find patients starting to develop cavities, we attempt to figure out why and correct any diet or brushing concerns. We want to develop a lifelong relationship with our patients and their families. Our last mission is our commitment to you the patient. We pledge to be there when you need us most: a dental emergency or toothache. We are open 5 days a week and have a dentist on call every evening and weekend to provide that peace of mind. If an emergency occurs, we will address the concerns immediately and schedule the required treatment. Thus, our office will work hard to provide you with a great dental experience using the latest technology, the most competent and caring staff, and highly skilled and professional dentists.
