WM Values

To provide dentistry where our patients are in the driver’s seat. A place where our patients can decide what suits them best.

Here at WM Dental, we will run through all options available to you. We will also discuss all the advantages and limitations of each option; how much it will cost, and how long it will take. For our patients, you can decide which option is most suitable for your situation.

Our vision is for our patients to be involved in their dental treatment. We want our patients to know what is being done and why; and what options are available to them. Thus, our patients are free to choose which treatment suits them best.

Our promise is to a. include our patients in all the decision making associated with their dental treatment; and b. to follow the Golden Rule – to treat others how we would like to be treated ourselves.

OUR PATIENTS SAY
