Preventing Oral Disease Now through proper oral health maintenance
At our office, we believe preventative dental care and maintenance are vital to your dental health. Through regularly scheduled exams we check the overall health of your teeth and gums, perform oral cancer screenings, and perform dental x-rays to detect problems before they worsen. Routine dental cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments help prevent cavities and dental disease. We review your medical history to assess your overall health and identify any illnesses that may have an impact on your dental health.
Our ongoing dental office sterilization and safety procedures
We want to ensure the health of our patients and our dental team. Our practice follows safety procedures recommended by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). These measures include:
- Offering hand sanitizer to everyone entering the practice, taking their temperature, and a new Covid19 Questionaire
- The COVID19 outbreak requiring everyone in the practice to wear a face mask
- Fogging the rooms in the practice regularly with hydrochloric acid and H2O2 and having bi-layered HEPA filters in each room
- Besides always washing hands, use of disinfectant hand sanitizers/soap
- Wearing gloves, masks, glasses, and/or face shields
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all non-disposable instruments and equipment before every use
- Chemical disinfection of all items which cannot be sterilized
- Use of disposable plastic coverings and sheaths over surfaces with high contact such as the dental chair, equipment, air/water syringe, and light handles.
As your dental health care provider, we want you to be confident knowing that we take the responsibility for your health and safety very seriously.

Why our dental practice is different
We are a concierge dental practice
- A small practice that specializes in high-quality complex restorative and aesthetic dentistry, implants, and treatment planning
Highly individualized dental practice– you will be treated by the same dentist and assistant for each visit. Dr. Klostermyer will assess your oral condition and based on your objectives, device options for comprehensive treatment plans and recommend different solutions that fit your needs and budget.
Highly selective in choosing our specialist partners – we work with a carefully selected network of endodontists, periodontists, orthodontists, pedodontists, ENT, plastic surgeons, and maxillofacial surgeons. Each of whom offers special skills that may be needed as part of your treatment plan.
A high-quality practice that grows through referrals. We seek long-term relationships with a well-informed clientele.
- Free to select the best high-quality materials and best dental laboratories. We set our own treatment standards.
- Offer multiple treatment options and explain the cost, advantages, and limitations of each.
Focused and thorough in our use of appointment time. You will never feel rushed through an appointment and will never have a long wait
We price our services commensurate with the necessary time and best materials to achieve high-quality mutually agreed outcomes. When possible we undertake steps to apply your dental insurance to your bill.
We take time to administer painless injections, e.g. lubricate lips, to provide suction, to ask how you are doing and, if you need a break. Our hygiene sessions are thorough and typically last an hour.
What we are not
We are not part of a corporate dentistry network.
We don’t attempt to do everything, but rather offer prosthetic and cosmetic procedures with very high quality. We recognize the benefits of cross-functional teams. Our objective is not to capture revenue from every dental procedure but to provide the highest comprehensive standard of dental treatment. This involves meticulous treatment planning and close collaboration with a specialist network.
- We are not corporate dentistry. We don’t solicit patients with coupons for exams and teeth whitening or dental insurance.
- We do not allow dental insurances to indirectly limit the quality of your care through their reimbursement policies.
Per default, our treatment plans are conservative with regard to cost and treatment longevity. Our bias is to retain and preserve natural teeth.
- We will not rush your appointment due to tight booking.
- We do not utilize time and materials to stay below limits set by dental insurance. After all, who is setting the standards here?
- We are not a group practice with multiple dentists with varying skill levels and skillsets.
