About Us

A practice to seek out if you are after the best

For patients to choose a dental office appropriate to their needs, there must exist a match between the services sought by the patient and the services provided by the office. If the value you possess for your teeth and health coincides with our beliefs in fine dentistry and prevention, a mutually rewarding relationship should evolve for both parties. As a form of welcoming you and sharing our beliefs about how we serve patients, the following information is provided: Briefly stated, the philosophy of Platte River Family Dentistry is this...


To provide excellent dental care and patient comfort at a reasonable fee. Thus, all with whom we come in contact will have the freedom to choose a lifetime of optimum dental health. We will provide high-quality individualized care, and will continually train ourselves in the latest proven techniques. We believe that love, respect and service to our fellow man is the highest honor on earth. As we serve each other in a clean and comfortable environment, our staff and patients will all become missionaries for optimum dental health.

A dental office is a small health-oriented team of professionals dedicated to serving patients. Each office maintains certain standards of skill and concern. We want an aura about us that unquestionably makes a statement of our quality of care. To make this evident, we have committed to a particular kind of practice. In a philosophical sense, basically, one is devoted to either quantity (do a little for a lot of people) or to quality (optimal care on a long-term basis for regular patients). We want to attract and keep people who share our values and beliefs in excellence or can grow to this level of appreciation through education and motivation. We seek a patient population dominated by people with high expectations of good health and happiness.

Examination Process

Examination in dentistry begins with a careful diagnosis and treatment plan to move us toward the goals we will establish together. We will perform an extensive and comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums, bite, joints, and soft tissues. When needed, and with your permission, we will utilize all appropriate x-rays; if beneficial, we will use intra-oral photographs and study models of your teeth and jaws to identify areas of concern. We believe this in-depth examination to be the cornerstone of quality dentistry.

Maintenance of Traditional Values

In this country, at this time, with the government becoming more involved in healthcare, insurance carriers trying to dictate treatment and fees, and some dental offices competing through advertising, extended hours and pricing, the very foundation of dentistry is being tested. Platte River Family Dentistry believes there has never been a time when a practice dedicated to prevention, service, and excellence can be more highly rewarding to both our patients and to us, in providing quality, long-term health care. We hope you agree and will join our family.
