Dr. Monte Burtch has been a trusted family dentist in Palmer and Wasilla since 1995 and has the knowledge and experience you can trust with your dental care. Working alongside Dr. Burtch is our wonderful team, made up of dedicated professionals who truly care about providing a pleasant dental experience to you and your family.
So why would you choose our office for your dental home?
-Individualized Risk Assessment (From your Health and Dental History)
-Customized Risk Assessment (From your Clinical exam)
-Quality treatment to achieve the goals you desire for your oral health based on your Customized Risk Assessment.
So here is how it works.
When you choose to come to our office, you begin by filling out a medical and dental history to start your individualized oral risk assessment.
When you arrive, your risk assessment is reviewed and then an oral examination is performed in which 4 different aspects of your oral health are evaluated. These are the health of you gum and bone, the structural integrity of the teeth themselves, the way your teeth meet together when you chew, and how they are positioned when you smile. This comprehensive exam evaluates the risk of your oral health and the prognosis of having your teeth outlive you, assuming you will live to be 101 years old.
You can then determine for yourself how much risk you would like to assume, and then the treatment can be determined to go with the level of risk you are comfortable with. Depending on the treatment chosen, more information may be needed, such as mounted models, Cone beam imaging, etc. Most of the time, treatment can be completed quickly or staged to make your choices fit your budget.
In providing the treatment desired, expertise in many fields may be called upon. We work hand in hand with hand-picked Orthodontists, Oral Surgeons, Endodontists and Periodontists to achieve your goals. Our Office and our network of Caregivers stay up on the latest techniques and technology to achieve excellent treatment comfortably.
This initial exam, the risk assessment, our network of caregivers (when needed) and then the continued quality of care throughout the treatment is what I believe sets our office apart from others, and if this is what you would like for you or your family, we would love seeing you.
