Our Philosophy

“Saving your own teeth in an hour”
Our goal is to save the patient’s natural teeth and to create a healthy, functional bite and esthetic smile. If that is not possible, other options are explained in detail. We strongly believe in the Team Approach to treatment. The patient, the restorative dentist, and Dr. Geivelis confer in all cases before any treatment is initiated. We would love to become a part of your team.
