What is unique about your practice?
We believe our profession is as much about cultivating relationships as it is about teeth. Through trust and integrity, we’ve built a reputation predicated on elite level patient care and service. Our patients don’t have to take a leap of faith when working with us. We spend time educating them so they can make informed decisions—using photography, we show them pictures of their mouths during all stages of treatment. We differentiate ourselves through the countless root canals, extractions and implants we’re able to prevent through early detection and comprehensive treatment planning. We are proud to be the dental office for many local dental professionals, their families and staff.
What makes you different than other dentists?
Time invested in staying current. Our doctors average 75 hours of continuing education each year—the requirement is 15. Drs. Dudley and Hartman have attained fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, a recognition of post-graduate education and training achieved by only six percent of all dentists.Our commitment to continuing education, use of the most diagnostic technology and best dental practices ensure that we do truly provide the best care possible, ultimately saving our patients time and money.
What is the biggest challenge in your job?
Differentiating ourselves to prospective patients. Most people who are changing dentists for non-geographical reasons have lost faith in their provider. Beyond our credentials—our doctors are alumni of the Universities of Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Washington, Boston College, Middlebury College and the United States Airforce—we believe we have the best staff in the country. We’re proud of our competitive advantages, care and the experience our patients have come to enjoy!
