We believe in establising a long-standing relationship with our patients built on trust and mutual respect for one another.
A standard of excellence in personalized periodontal care enables us to provide the quality periodontal services our patients deserve. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see you the same day if not the following day. Your comfort is important to us. If we can not see you, we will refer you to someone that will be able to help you in a prompt manner. Dr Hoppin is very proud of the quality of periodontal care he provides to his patients.
Excellence in our periodontal practice begins with a thorough examination and diagnosis. Every patient will receive a comprehensive periodontal examination of gums and bone, teeth, bite (TMJ), joints, muscles and soft tissues. Our patient services are specifically tailored to an individualized plan created to improve their overall quality of life. Our approach inspires our patients to meet their individual goals for the chosen level of health, comfort and beauty.
Education & Prevention
We are true believers that preventative care and education are the key to optimal (periodontal) 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. We also know that routine cleanings, along with specialized home care, are key in preventing periodontal disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your overall health. We strive to provide options and opportunities for patients to choose the level of care that is consistent with their values along with educating them to the cause and crippling effects of periodontal disease. A review of your medical history will help us stay informed of your overall health. Any new medications or illnesses that may impact your dental health is closely reviewed at each dental visit in our office.
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). We comply with all safety regulations and stay informed regarding the latest updates.
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.
Since we are licensed to administer IV sedations for our patients, we have an additional level of skill and training when it comes to medical emergencies.
