My name is Dr. Chris Maguire; I'm a General Dentist here at Dental Associates. I take care of the nuts-and-bolts of general dentistry, anything from fillings, to crowns, to cosmetic bonding, to root canals. I take care of our elderly patients who have special needs; maybe they need a denture or a partial denture. I also take care of all the children in the practice and getting the kids into to good oral health and taking care of preventive needs like sealants and fluoride treatments to make sure that we're taking good care of them. What's most important is when we sit down and we meet with the new patient, we want to find out exactly it is that they're looking for. Some people are just looking for a cleaning and a check-up, they want to make sure they're okay. Some people, they have a dental problem or some issue that's as simple as doing a filling or a cavity. We can take care of that and do a very good job. Other people are looking for different ways to improve their smile. Obviously, people want to look their best; these days it's very important. We can offer them many different ways to do that.
