Preventive Care & Patient Education
We believe in the concept of preventive care and education. Our goal is providing “preventive dental health care” rather than “disease care”, which is why our practice places so much emphasis on thorough oral examinations. Maryville, TN dentist Dr. Norman understands that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are very important factors in preventing dental disease. We focus on your overall health and the beauty of your smile.
Treatment of Causative Factors
We identify causative factors rather than treating only apparent symptoms. We seek to determine why a problem occurred and what controlling factors can be modified to prevent a re-occurrence.
We follow all infection control recommendations of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the state and national Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Each year, we participate in many hours of continuing education to remain current on safety techniques and procedures. We are committed to treating each patient as we would want to be treated.

Your dental health is important to us, and as dental health professionals, we want you to be confident in our training and expertise as skilled clinicians. In order to maintain the high level of service for the results that our patients demand and deserve, we continually update our educations by participating in dental lectures, meetings and conventions so that we remain aware of new techniques, products, and equipment that become available.
