"It is our belief that the current state of the art of dentistry makes it possible for almost all people to retain their natural teeth throughout their entire life. This is a practical objective that can be achieved through a combination of patient education in measures of prevention of dental disease, and timely, high quality service on the part of the dental practitioner and staff."
