A NOTE FROM DR. KELLER:
" I wanted to share with you my philosophy on dental care, and how it has changed as I have received advanced training. Most dentists practice according to insurance company's policies, and do not offer patients longer lasting, beautiful restorations, or the latest therapies available. This may be because new technology is difficult to learn, and they are used to their patients just wanting to fix broken and hurting teeth with something to get them by.
Soon after I graduated LVI, I was treating my mother. I realized how important it was for me to offer all the available therapies and to educate her on the different modalities of care available today. In doing this, I allowed her to decide what treatment method was the best suited for her oral health and financial means. My mother is a very fearful patient and had undergone a significant amount of restorative work in the past. The icing on the cake was when I offered her sedation dentistry and explained that she could sleep through the entire procedure if she wanted. It did not take too much convincing when I informed her that, in as little as two visits, I could restore her mouth to a beautiful smile, and her future visits to the dentist would be for examinations and cleanings to sustain and monitor her oral health. No more worries about root canals, broken or chipped teeth or cold sensitivity. She was so thankful and her smile looks absolutely incredible! It truly is such a good feeling, to reverse someone's dental fears, to give a patient the confidence to smile again, and have the assurance they will never experience dental pain again! After completing my mother's case, we mutually agreed it was the best experience each of us ever had in dentistry.
At that point, I decided to continue on this path with all of my patients. We provide Lip Balm, heated back massage pads, foot and neck massages, headphones and Direct TV, warm scented towels and my gentle touch. I use the latest technologies, including digital x-rays, a Diode laser and porcelain-bonded restorations. I gain a lot of satisfaction getting to know my patients and understanding exactly what they desire, I offer the best treatment modalities in a caring and personalized environment, and strive to make every visit like a visit to the spa. Since then, I have loved my job every day!"
