Dr. Eskanos’ practice philosophy:
We are healers. We are here to help others in their own healing, and to heal ourselves in the process. We do this in a comfortable, caring and supportive environment. We help our patients by discovering, diagnosing and treating decay, dysfunction and disease. We treat their problems with as much empathy and compassion as possible because we know that the care we provide comes at a price. That price is measured by the investment of time and money our patients are willing to make to improve their appearance and in the discomfort they are willing to endure at our hands to achieve their health goals.
The rewards for our care are great. We are paid in smiles, in the trust our patients show through their referrals and in the knowledge that we have the ability to improve peoples’ lives. Remember that we deal with people, not just teeth. They have feelings, concerns and problems just as we do. We should try to help our patients and each other with any problem that exists.
