Our Process – How We Help

One Size Does Not Fit All

You are unique! Your history and your experiences at the dentist are important to us. We take the time to get to know you and your teeth to customize your treatment. We deeply value your trust and want you to feel at home.

Putting science to work for you

Dr. Wessels and the entire team continually update and expand their knowledge and skills based on the most recent scientific studies. We deliver evidence-based dentistry based on what works and has worked for situations like yours, increasing the chance that your teeth will last a lifetime.


People are often embarrassed to seek help because they believe the condition of their mouth is purely their fault or feel hopeless. We're here to help you, not judge you, and we'll walk with you every step of the way.


We don't base our recommendations on what dental insurance coverage dictates, or what is deemed “good enough” by the industry. We’re serious about delivering top tier service and care that’s as unique as you are…and ensuring that you clearly understand each step.

Look at things Proactively

Our thorough examination process is the cornerstone of our practice and the beginning of your journey with us. Using our systematic process of collecting very specific information, we are able to focus on signs and symptoms that are predictive of future problems.


We think long-term. Every recommendation we make to you must reduce your specific and overall risks of dental problems in the future. We’ll recommend treatments that give you the best chance of keeping your smile and work with you to create a plan that fits your needs.


Creating optimal dental health through personalized, proactive care

Autographed with Excellence!

It simply feels different to walk into an office where excellence is the standard. We embrace this as our foundation and driving principle. To us, Excellence means that we are continually growing in Quality, Integrity, and Mastery, with the ultimate goal of lifting up and giving life to others.

We are also deeply motivated by the following 4 values:

Quality: Delivering well informed, well crafted results that are technically and artistically excellent

Creativity: Planning and acting intentionally to create a specific outcome: Optimal Health!

Honor: Valuing others through Courtesy, Honesty, and Integrity.

Authenticity: True and genuine in speech and action.

Our continued relationship with the world renowned Kois Center in Seattle forms the foundation for our ongoing education and journey toward excellence in service and care.
