James R. Stewart, Jr., DDS
My dental care philosophy focuses on developing relationships with my patients. This begins by sitting down and getting to know each of you, and learning about your needs and desires. This creates a level of trust that we hope evolves into a lasting relationship that we value so much. We want to provide optimum oral health to you and your family for a lifetime.
I believe that it is important that my patients understand their dental health issues and that we take the time necessary to discuss their concerns and needs. Through proper diagnosis, comprehensive treatment planning, and patient education, we help them achieve their oral health goals. I am committed to continued education which helps me provide the state-of-the-art care that my patients deserve.
We understand that implant therapy, whether replacing a single tooth or all of your teeth, is a commitment of time and money. Our goal is to discuss treatment and fees openly and honestly, and to work with you to make sure your treatment plan fits within your lifestyle and budget.
My team and I really enjoy what we do, are very proud of how patients are treated in our office, and look forward to having you join our family of patients.
I look forward to meeting you!
