Dr. Weinstein's Philosophy:
To treat each patient as an individual “dealing” with his or her own unique needs and concerns.
To work with each patient to come up with a “game plan” that will make them feel comfortable with all aspects of treatment.
To do as much treatment as necessary – yet do as “little as possible”.
To keep the office atmosphere as “light”, “comfortable” and relaxing as possible. We take our dentistry seriously – we do not take ourselves so seriously.
We do not judge people – We are here to help them get the care they need and deserve.
We want each patient to leave the office not only in better oral health and looking better but feeling better about themselves.
We understand some people are much more anxious about coming to the dentist and it is our responsibility to work with each person and help them “deal with” their fears so that they can get the care they need and to restore their dental health.

As told by an actual patient of Dr. Weinstein:
"I have had dental anxiety for nearly 30 years. I had a terrible toothache and the staff worked to get me in ASAP. I ended up needing a root canal and crown.
Honestly, I was terrified initially but Sharon, Ashley and Dr. Weinstein made me so relaxed and confident, it was a breeze!
I never thought I'd ever say I had 'fun' at the dentist!"
