Dr. Wisdom Akpaka and Dr. Mariel Petruk pride themselves in performing gentle dentistry according to the highest standard of care. Conscious of the anxiety many patients experience, our entire dental team strives to make you at ease and your dentistry painless.
Dr. Wisdom and Dr. Petruk compassionately and gently care for patients of all ages and with all kinds of needs and desires for their oral health. We are friendly and professional so please do not be shy about opening up and talking with us. From the moment you give us a call, we want to assist you exceptionally well. If you have delayed going to the dentist for months or even years, do not be embarrassed to tell us about your dental anxiety and the oral health issues that concern you.
When you come to Wisdom Dental for your first appointment, we will spend time getting to know you and your dental and medical history. We will be interested in learning how we can help you best. You will have personal time with the dentist and not feel hurried. If you have an urgent problem or are in pain, we will do everything we can to see and treat you promptly. If you are calling after hours with an emergency, follow the voiced instructions, and Dr. Wisdom will return your call.
Our comprehensive oral exam and prophylactic dental cleaning are thorough, yet gentle. If you are anxious, Dr. Wisdom and Dr. Petruk can offer you nitrous oxide for relaxation. We promise to inform you fully and help you make treatment decisions that are most appropriate for you. We promise to not recommend unnecessary x-rays or care that is not in your best interest. We are a patient-centered practice that views you as a partner in evaluating your oral health, setting oral health goals, and designing a treatment plan that is individualized for your preferences, as well as your oral health and financial circumstances.
