All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.  Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.

Why dentists refer to MWDS

Dentists, dental auxillaries, and other health care workers can refer patients to a dental specialist. Complex, difficult treatment, or more routine treatment for patients with high expectations will often be referred to a dental specialist. The role of dental specialists is not to act as a substitute for general dental care, but to work in unison with the general practitioner to achieve the very best outcomes for our patients.
