“Why do I have to go to a specialist for this?  Can’t you do that here?”

The short answer is yes.  As a general dentist, I can do specialized procedures here.  But there are reasons why it is in your best interest for me to refer you to a specialist.

- Specialists have years of additional training in their particular field, leading to greater expertise, especially in complicated cases.

- Your time is valuable.  Specialists are generally able to complete a procedure more quickly than a general dentist.  We are fortunate to have several fine specialists right here in the Illinois Valley.
