Comprehensive Dentistry in Spokane, WA

A Proactive Approach to Dental Care

Our practice is not a needs-based drill-and-fill dental office. Instead, we take a proactive approach that uses the most modern advancements in dentistry to locate dental needs while they are as small as possible. This expands treatment options for our patients, allows us to provide predictable, quality care, and keeps our fees as low as possible. Because everyone has different needs. We see patients that have all ranges of dental health needs. Some people know that they need to see a dentist but haven’t in years, while others choose to have elective cosmetic therapies in addition to routine care. It is our pleasure to provide attentive care that meets the individual needs of individual people, no matter what the status of their smile is.

Comprehensive Exam

Every patient receives a comprehensive dental examination that checks the teeth, gums, jaw and soft tissues of the mouth. Dr. Love looks for any signs of disease, damage or abnormalities. He inquires about the patient’s dental and medical history to identify any medications or conditions that could affect the health of the mouth. He may use diagnostic technology, such as X-rays or CT scans, to capture images of the structures of the mouth and examine those more closely. The type and number of these images depends on the specific needs of the patient. Dr. Love discusses his observations and the results of these diagnostics with the patient. Based on the findings, he recommends a suitable approach to proceed with treatment.

Personal Dental Plan (PDP)

Every patient receives a Personal Dental Plan, or PDP, that outlines the appropriate steps of treatment or maintenance. This plan includes the most advanced care we can offer. The PDP is completely customized to the needs of the patient. It may be as simple as a patient with optimal oral health continuing to see Dr. Love every six months for a check-up and professional cleaning. Or, for someone with damaged, decayed or missing teeth, the PDP could involve the complex restoration or rebuilding of the teeth. In the case of a patient with healthy yet unattractive teeth, the PDP could include one or more cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve the appearance of the smile. Regardless of scope for the PDP, Dr. Love chooses to implement some of the most advanced equipment possible so that our patients can receive the most advanced care possible. Our care goes a step further than a general or cosmetic dental office. It’s care you deserve, without having to ask for something extra.
