WHY CHOOSE US? Dr. Jermov is the only doctor at Dr. Michael Jermov D.D.S. The result is consistent patient care and responsibility. No substitutions, no mix-ups, no changes in direction or re-interpretations. Although we may consult with trusted specialists on your behalf, rest assured that your care is our utmost priority, and your concerns are given the highest regard in a one-on-one relationship with the doctor. QUALITY Dental care is not a commodity. Unlike electricity or lumber, there IS a difference in the materials used to treat patients. For example, a filling material may look the same in the beginning, but how will it perform in the long run? Yes, even in the dental industry there are "brand x" materials. There are crowns (caps) made in China and elsewhere, for example. What would you like used when you are treated? Rest assured that such compromises in your care do not occur at the office of Dr. Jermov, as long lasting appropriate care is our goal. AFFORDABILITY We all seek value in the choices we make. However when value supersedes quality, safety and effectiveness, a line is drawn. No investment one ever makes is more important than that in yourself and your health. Although we accept many insurance plans, we do not accept them all. Some insurance plans are so poor as to obligate the treating doctor to make such compromises in care as to possibly do harm to the patient. Other insurance plans have attractive out of network benefits. Call us and let us help you navigate this often confusing issue. Other financing options are also available, and we'll be happy to discuss these with you. SAFETY and TRUST Dr. Jermov makes no compromise in the safety and cleanliness of the office, from the sterilization of instruments to cleanliness of our public areas. We are primary care providers, and are in it for the long run. We build relationships with our patients, and are there for you. We think this shows in the number of family and friend referrals we receive. We welcome the opportunity to serve you. EDUCATION The ethical beauty of the dental profession is the constant striving to eliminate the need for our services. In other words, how can we help you prevent your next filling or infection? Can we help you avoid an emergency? Can we help prevent you from needing a denture or crown? The key lies in educating patients AS WELL AS treating them. It lies in not assuming that you know it all, or that some things are inevitable. Proper diagnosis and clearly informing the patient regarding findings and treatment are essential. We believe in living to a higher standard, which is easily obtained. Let us show you how! FAMILY CARE As a family practice, we see all ages. From your two year old daughter to your ninety year old grandfather, we are happy to welcome your family to our office. We are handicapped accessible, and wheelchairs are no problem.
