In 2004 I had the honor of taking over Dr. David Summers dental practice. Dr. Summers had practiced in Grand Junction since 1967. As a result, many of our patient have been treated by the same two dentists (either Dr. Summers or me), for over 50 years - and they still have their teeth… Success!
This patient loyalty and longevity reflects the type of dental practice that we strive for. We are not a high-volume- revolving door -retail dental office. We seek for long-term patient relationships and that is reflected in the patients who have been with us for decades. While in today’s market many dental practices are being purchased and managed by corporate dental managers, our office retains its autonomy and therefore can focus exclusively on patient care and patient satisfaction.
After practicing dentistry in the same building Dr. Summers practiced in for 30 years, Larsen Dental built and expanded into our new state-of-the-art facility in 2011, which allowed us to offer even more updated services to our patients, including more digital services, such as digital x-rays.
We also have a dedicated sterilization area that operates at the highest sterilization standards. All treatment areas and financial discussion areas are private and allow for patient confidentiality.
How is Larsen Dental Different?
Over the years, I have been told by many patients, they have appreciated our ‘tailored style’ of dental treatment. By tailored I mean, we realize different patients have different desires when it comes to their dental care and treatment. We respect our patient’s desires. We see our role as dental providers to simply let you know what dental problems we see, what problems may arise in the future, and provide a menu of options for treatment. We never dictate treatment or make a patient feel uncomfortable when they choose differently than our top recommendations. Frankly, we do an excellent job, not just in providing high-quality dental procedures, but also in helping patients find a strategy for their dental care that meets their expectations for the future. Give us a call and let us help you with your dental challenges and goals!
