Cedar Point Dental is located along a stretch of ponds on the west side of Springfield. These bodies of water attract a variety of wildlife year round and provide a spectacular view from each of our eight operatories. From the moment you enter Cedar Point, you realize that the office was designed as more of an extension of our home than a medical facility. There are no cold tile floors or sterile white walls. Significant effort has been made to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
Far too often dentists are in such a hurry to fix their patient’s problems, they do not take the time to listen to their concerns. Unfortunately, this often results in the patient’s expectations not being met. Dentists have an incredible array of techniques and materials now available to them, but there is no substitute for taking the time to sit down and listen to your patient. Allowing an individual to express their dental problems and goals, in their own words, provides us with an invaluable asset that can be used to design a patient-specific treatment plan that will surpass their expectations.
Modern Dentistry has evolved into many specialized fields. Many dentists have felt pressured to incorporate as many of these treatments into their practice as possible; becoming a one-stop shop for their patients. However, the time and clinical expertise necessary to master each of these techniques is more than any one dentist can achieve. It is impossible for a single dentist to provide the level of care that a team, working closely together, is capable of. Dr.’s Maggiore and Stevens have elected to work with a team of specialists, all committed to acquiring the skills needed to provide our patients with the most advanced and predictable treatment options available.
