Our commitment is to treat your periodontal and dental implant needs in a professional, timely and comfortable manner. Our belief is that treatment is a two-way street of communication. Our goal is to treat you and educate you; we welcome and encourage your questions and comments . We believe that your satisfaction is our ultimate objective and we welcome the opportunity to provide you with the highest standard of up-to-date care possible.
Through this care we can help you to keep your natural teeth, avoid further infection and discomfort and positively affect your overall dental health.
Our philosophy is simple. We are committed to preserving the health, function and appearance of your natural dentition through high-quality, state-of-the-art periodontal and dental implant therapy. In order to achieve this goal, we encourage a team approach between you, your family dentist and our office. You and your dentist will be advised and informed fully as to all treatment plans and objectives.
Appointments and office policies
At your consultation and examination visit, your medical and dental histories will be reviewed prior to your clinical examination.
Your first visit
Your clinical evaluation will include:
- Oral cancer examination
- Examination of your teeth, gum tissues and bite
- Periodontal probing (gum measurements) and charting.
- X-rays as necessary
Through this gathering of important data, Dr. Polimeni will advise you as to your condition and what treatment will be involved to correct your problem.
For your protection and ours, our office follows a stringent sterilization protocol. Our procedures meet and/or exceed federal regulations for health care providers. All instruments used in your mouth are either disposable or are scrubbed, ultrasonically cleaned and then autoclaved under steam and pressure to ensure sterility between patients. We routinely wear masks, gloves and protective eyewear for procedures. We realize that every time you visit our office you place a very special trust in our hands and we do not take this trust lightly.

Access and review your dental images and X-rays online from the comfort of your own home.
- Share your smile with family and friends
If applicable, share your Invisalign® ClinCheck® via email and Facebook - show your family and friends how easy it is to improve their smile, too!
- Post-Appointment Feedback
After your appointment, we’ll send you a link to an online survey where you can let us know how we’re doing (and what could use some improvement).
The best part about these features is that they are already available to you! All you need is a personal email account, then call or email our office, and we will gladly provide you with your own personal login information.
You are not only our patient but also a member of our extended family. Thank you for choosing us to be your dental care provider.
