I and my dedicated staff want you to have the same kind of care that we would want for those we love most, our family. We want to serve you as we would like to be served. We love giving five star service. We want you to have a healthy mouth, and have as attractive a smile as you want to have. We will show you how to maintain the excellent dental treatment we recommend - key to success in dental futures. We have the experience, education, office and instruments, and know-how to treat you successfully; our patients can have an excellent dental future, and keep their teeth for a lifetime.
We practice "humanistically". We want you to know that we care about you as a whole person, not just your teeth; your wants, needs, desires are paramount in your treatment. We take care of pressing problems and arrest disease before we do reconstruction of teeth. We will address pressing cosmetic needs as well in this initial stage if that is paramount for you. We will not saddle you with an overwhelming plan of dental work. We believe in phased treatment plans - stages that you can live with that can sometimes take time, but are always working towards a goal of better dental health. We will work with you financially to get what you want. We offer a number of financial plans to help you - some are even interest free!
We also want to make you friends for a lifetime. Our patients are our family and we love them. Their is no greater honor than to be their personal family dentist.
Yours for Better Dental Health,
Phillip M. Sacks DDS
