Welcome to our office. Your initial visit consists of a complete evaluation and a thorough clinical examination and a review of past medical and dental history by Dr. Bernard. This allows us to get to know each other and begins the process of learning about your periodontal health. Enlightened people need facts. We want you to make informed choices by fully understanding your dental needs. Please feel free to ask any questions of our staff. We are all here to help you.
Our office is equipped with the proper sterilization techniques that are recommended by OSHA. We assure you that universal precautions, safety, sterilization and training are very important in our office and will always be kept up to date. Feel free to ask us for a tour of our office at any time.
Our staff are highly qualified for each of their positions. They all have proper training and years of experience. In addition, we strive to keep current on all changes in the dental profession.
Our office hours vary Monday through Friday. We try to accommodate our schedule for patient convenience.
Emergencies will be handled as promptly as possible. If there is ever an emergency during non-business hours, first call the office and leave a message and then you will be given a number to page Dr. Bernard. If Dr. Bernard is out of town, another doctor may be on call for him. It is important to call the office if you feel you have a problem. Most complications can be handled by phone if you don't delay contacting us.
Most of our patients are referred by dentists. However, we do appreciate referrals of anyone you might know who may need periodontal care or dental implants. Please keep us in mind when talking with family and friends.
