Dr. Hanigofsky’s Approach 

When first meeting patients, I try to reach them on a personal level to truly understand their motivations and goals. With this information, I can create a personalized plan of what can be done and how best we, as a team, can reach a successful outcome. I believe by creating these positive relationships and understanding motivations and goals early on, I can create a framework of trust that carries through a patient’s time in the practice. My main goal is to give patients a feeling of warmth and security rather than the fear and anxiety often experienced when thinking about or visiting the dentist.
