About DR. Z
No-Fault Dentistry If your son or daughter has cavities, rather than feel unnecessarily guilty, we want you to be positioned to move forward. Cavities are not a product of bad parenting; they are the result of a bacterial infection. Our staff takes valuable time to help you discover and uncover habits that may threaten your child’s smile without making you feel bad.
No secrets. No hiding Our office was designed intentionally in an open layout, from the reception area to the treatment area. There are no partitions or closed doors. What happens here is all good. Our kids intuitively recognize this.
Minimally Invasive Dentistry It is based on advances in science that seeks out ways to treat your child’s cavities less aggressively, less painfully and with minimal trauma. That means in many cases with less tooth drilling, fewer injections, fewer extractions, and fewer dental pulp treatments. We will never compromise your child’s oral health and we will make every effort for our dental treatments to be simpler, kinder and minimally invasive.
Whole-health dentistry takes into account a patient’s overall health, not just the health of teeth, gums, and oral structures. This means that we look at the big picture. Overall health is supported by the care we provie.
