Our mission is to provide you with a comprehensive dental evaluation, education and treatment with the highest standard of quality and integrity.
We will treat every patient with friendliness and respect, and make each visit as pleasant and comfortable as possible. We will provide outstanding customer service in working with appointments, treatment, insurance and billing.
We will take time to understand our patient’s needs, and respond with understanding and compassion in a professional manner. Our goal is to provide clear, knowledgeable information with the highest quality dental care to all our patients. At Dr. Leech’s office, you are our priority.
During your first visit, you will receive:
- A warm welcome from our team
- Review of dental & medical history
- Radiographs and intraoral photographs if indicated
- Examination of teeth and gums
- Charting of existing restorations and needed treatment
- Periodontal charting
- Cancer screening
- Patient education
- Explanation of any treatment needs
- Cleaning of teeth (if appropriate)
After Dr. Leech understands your priorities and concerns and diagnoses your treatment needs, he will discuss his recommendations with you, answering any questions you may have. Our staff will then go over your financial obligations, and set up any needed appointments. We want you to have a clear understanding of needed treatment and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Should you need help in determining how to pay for dental work, we can guide you in a variety of financial options that we offer.
