PHD Practice Philosophy
At PLAZA HEALTH Dentistry, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality dentistry in St. Louis, MO. The Team at PHD is devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile. We use ultra-conservative, minimally-invasive, state-of-the-art procedures that result in beautiful, long lasting smiles! Our up-to-date technology (lasers) and techniques (single-visit onlays) employed are meant to ensure a comfortable, quick and affordable office visit. Dr. Schlotz's aim is to treat each and every patient as he would his own family; stressing conservative, quality care delivered with the utmost integrity.
Dr. Schlotz also firmly believes in offering a patient education that is second-to-none including the presentation of multiple treatment options for each patient. This discussion along with treatment options results in a true INFORMED CONSENT for dental care. Sadly, even in 2015, Dr. Schlotz feels the principles of a full informed consent for dental care are not offered by many dental offices.
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease.
Infection control in our office is of paramount importance at PHD. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible, almost always that means on the same day.
