What Sets Us Apart

Our practice is unique because our mission is different. Our stated mission is to help you keep your teeth for a longer lifetime.  That requires we provide you with an excellent examination, provide quality comprehensive care, and provide the best preventive and continuing care available. Our patients benefit from the quality, long-term dental health care they receive. We hope that you agree and will join our family of patients.

Examination Process

Excellence in dentistry begins with a careful diagnosis and treatment plan to move us toward the goals we will establish together. We will perform a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums, bite, jaw joints, and soft tissues. When needed, and with your permission, we will utilize all appropriate x-rays. At times we will use intra-oral photographs and study models of your teeth and jaw to identify areas of concern. We believe this in-depth examination to be the cornerstone of quality dentistry.  To be able to serve you better, we are constantly upgrading our skills and technology.  An enhanced oral cancer sceening exam using the Velscope and Diagnodent laser cavity exam are two examples of the enhanced services we offer.

Prevention

We have centered our practice on prevention and health as opposed to one that simply emphasizes emergency and repair care. The supporting gum tissue and bone are just as vital as the teeth themselves. The best way to protect and maintain the crucial supporting structures is to have regular hygiene appointments and excellent daily home care. We will design an ongoing program of care with you, so you may continue in excellent oral health.  View our Optimal Home Oral Health Care recommendations.

Comprehensive Care

Because of his extensive continuing education, Dr. Markiewicz is frequently able to provide all the services needed to restore your mouth to an optimum condition. In some instances, your needs could be better met in the hands of a specialist. If so, be assured that Dr. Markiewicz and the specialist will work together closely in the diagnosis and treatment planning of your care.

Restorative Dentistry

Patients suffer many dental problems because of inadequately planned treatment. Restorative dentistry is the branch of dentistry that takes into consideration your needs, wants and values. It designs the one, best treatment plan that will fulfill your needs and goals.

Cosmetic Dentistry

One of the most fascinating emerging areas of dentistry is cosmetic dentistry. New, innovative procedures are available today which were unheard of five to ten years ago. New materials and techniques enable us to literally transform smiles and to enhance self-esteem and self-image.

Implantology

Dental implants allow us to solidly and permanently replace missing teeth in patients who previously had to settle for a looser fitting, removable type of tooth replacement like dentures. We work closely with a specialist who places the implants. Dr. Markiewicz then completes your treatment with the appropriate restorative dentistry.

Emergency

We recognize that emergencies do occur. Our office phone number is answered 24 hours a day by a team member or our voice mail system informing you of how to reach Dr. Markiewicz. If Dr. Markiewicz is unavailable, you will be given instruction on how to reach the Dentist covering emergencies for Dr. Markiewicz. We provide special priority status for you or any family member who has been seen during the previous year in our practice.

Questions

Our team members are well trained and dedicated to make a difference for each and every person we are privileged to serve. No question is too small or insignificant for us to answer. Please give us feedback as your opinions and ideas are very important to us.
