Our Philosophy of Dental Care

At Oak Grove Dental Center our experienced and caring team believes that providing high quality dentistry is only part of creating a successful relationship with our patients. We realize that each patient is an individual with individual needs. We take the time to understand your needs and tailor your care to ensure your dental experience exceeds your expectations of going to the dentist.

Our “Philosophy of Care” consists of four components:

1. Identify the Problem

During your examination, Dr. Speer will identify any areas of concern, whether it is a tooth that has been bothering you, or something that could potentially give you problems in the future.

2. Educate

We believe that education is the key to involving our patients in their dental care. If we can help you understand how a problem starts, we can help prevent you from having the same problem in the future.

3. Present Multiple Options

There is almost always more than one solution to a problem. At Oak Grove Dental Center, we want you to understand all of your options before proceeding. We will present you with a treatment plan that will include the cost of each option discussed, so you can make an informed decision.

4. You Decide How to Proceed

Dr. Speer will make a recommendation based on his expertise. However, we know there are many factors that affect your decision when choosing a course of treatment. We want YOU to make the decision that is best for your situation.
