Dear patient, 

I work for you. I am here to ensure you have the information you need to make informed decisions about your dental health and to make your dental treatment as comfortable as possible. 

My advice will always be based on your best interests. My training and technology exist to fulfill the decisions you make regarding what is best for you and your family. To help in your decision-making, I will openly and candidly discuss with you what you can expect from my recommended treatment plan -- what's involved, anticipated results, cost and alternatives. I encourage you to ask questions so you can decide confidently how to proceed. 

I am aware that many patients have anxiety about visiting the dentist. I believe that anxiety is real, that it is important, and that it is my job to do what I can to alleviate it.
