Our Oath


  • I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures which are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.

  • I will remember that there is art to dentistry as well as science, and that warmth, empathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.

  • I will not be ashamed to say “I know not”; nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient’s well being.

  • I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humility and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at being God.

  • I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart or a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person’s family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

  • I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is the preferable to cure.

  • I will remember that I remain a member of a society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those of sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

  • If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live an remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.

Ora Verse brings you back :

A new direction in comfort

We want you to have the most comfortable experience possible.  It's a commitment that begins when you call our office and extends long after you leave.  Now there's an advancement that redefines this possibility if you're on of the many who dislike lingering numbness from local anesthesia.

Now it's possible

Ora Verse is the first and only product of its kind to rapidly reverse the effects of local anesthetic.  It is scientifically proven to accelerate the return of normal sensation and function following routine dental procedures.

It's about time

This breakthrough changes your measure of comfort by creating an easy and expedient return to normal activities.  And for parents, there is added peace of mind in knowing children will regain normal feeling more quickly with OraVerse.

Your return to normal

The average duration of soft tissue numbness following the use of local dental anesthetic is 3-5 hours.  When OraVerse is administered following the procedure, normal sensation and function returns in half the time, most of the time within 20 minutes.

And that's time you can put back in your day...doing what you want to do without limitations.
