Philosophy

Mission Statement

We believe quality makes the difference. We assist you in keeping your natural teeth for a lifetime and helping you feel better about yourself. Our relationship with you grows through caring, fine dentistry and education.

Your Physical Health

It is easy to forget that your teeth, gums and mouth are essential parts of the body. Periodontal disease, bone and gum loss, and infections all affect the overall picture of our physical health. Taking care of your teeth and gums is part of an intentional plan for physical health. In collaboration with our dental team, you create a plan for your dental health that will contribute to your overall health plan.

Emotional Well Being

The way you think and feel about yourself is an important part of your emotional well being and a pleasant smile plays a big role in this. In addition, when you take an active role in caring for yourself it contributes to your overall sense of competence in managing your life and maintaining a positive lifestyle. The habit of dental care and regular hygiene exams reinforces taking positive steps for yourself in other areas of your life.

Preventive Wellness

Systemic conditions (pregnancy, diabetes and heart disease to name a few) and certain medications (prescriptions and over the counter) are directly related to the health of your teeth and gums. Here at Perkins Dental Associates, we address the dental health component specifically in the area of preventative wellness. Americans are living longer. Helping patients keep their natural teeth for a lifetime is our goal. We facilitate advancement toward this goal by helping you make educated decisions concerning your unique dental situations. We take time to help you understand the pros and cons of products available to you commercially and/or exclusively through our office.

Perkins Dental is dedicated to knowing patients on a personal basis and building trust by thoroughly examining in a way that is understandable to the patient. We diagnose and develop an individualized treatment plan that offers long term solutions for the best oral health and esthetics. We continue to be the best dentistry has to offer because of our commitment to the patient. The Drs. work with exceptional personnel who support their philosophy of “One Life One Smile.”
