I grew up in a family of physicians and dentists in a small town in eastern Oregon. I learned to see each patient as an individual, and the value of the doctor/patient relationship became clear. I take great pride in offering my patients comprehensive dental services at The Graham Clinic. A standard of excellence in personalized healthcare enables me to provide the quality health services our patients deserve.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough histories and exams (medical and dental) – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Medication monitoring and screening tests are also helpful in disease prevention. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health. Any new medications and any illnesses may impact your dental health.
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 American Medical Association (AMA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, I 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 and body healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend lectures, meetings, and conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art care. Also, being members of various professional associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.
