About Grove Dental Associates
North American Dental Group-supported dentists are transforming the dental experience. A tall order that begins with empathy. Caring and understanding are at the core of this transformation. Complete care for our supported dentists’ patients, caring for one another, and caring for the work our supported dentists do. It is our foundation and it will define us now and in the future.
As we grow, we seek to be best-in-class in every aspect and to ensure our supported dentists are as well. To achieve that goal a clinical team of supported dentists has developed a guiding principle called “Every Patient, Every Visit.” Every Patient, Every Visit means that every patient’s total health care needs are met in every visit. It’s an uncommon approach. But, that’s what separates North American Dental Group- supported dentists and dental practices from other dental practices.
Dental health only tells half the story. Our bodies are interconnected, so our supported dentists start each appointment by checking in on some key health markers as well as behaviors. As necessary, our supported dentists also integrate with the patient’s primary medical providers or specialists.
