We recognize patient safety as an essential component of quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents and those with special health needs. We are in compliance or exceed infection control guidelines of the federal government for dental health care settings in order to prevent disease transmission from patient to care provider, from care provider to patient, and from patient to patient.

We have routine state inspection of all our radiological equipment and have developed emergency and fire safety protocols, and have annual inspections by township officials.

We also have ongoing quality improvement strategies by the routine assessment of risk, adverse events, and mistakes with a plan for reduction and improvement in patient safety and satisfaction.

We apply innovative strategies to tackle caries, with the use of silver diamine fluoride and glass ionomer ITRs along with conventional treatment.

We are personally involved in preventive measures throughout the community and are recognized for our commitment to improving the oral health care of children throughout the Michiana area.
