This practice was founded by Dr. Scott Henricksen in 1980. Dr. Jayna Sekijima joined as the associate dentist in 2014 and took over the practice in 2020 when Dr. Henricksen retired. Dr. Sekijima and the staff continue to provide an exceptional level of quality of care – and quality of experience.
Our Mission and Values
“Working side by side with our patients to achieve optimal oral health, comfort, function, and esthetics in accordance with each patient’s values”
We are committed to:
- Fostering a safe, professional, yet down-to-earth environment where all feel welcomed and cared for
- Treating our patients and team members the same way we would like to be treated
- Individualized care
- Delivering all aspects of care with respect, compassion, and integrity
- Working side by side with our patients, at the individual pace of each patient
- Making oral health approachable, achievable and maintainable
- Personal and professional growth
- Continually striving for excellence
As stated on our homepage, our goal is that our patients preserve their dentition in health for the rest of their lives, and that they be able to enjoy teeth that are trouble-free, pain-free, and fulfill their personal definition of attractive.
We believe that communication is paramount in achieving this. Should a dental problem arise, we will educate you about the issue occurring. We maintain a conservative treatment philosophy, but will review all realistic options to fix the problem, ranging from the most basic to the more complex. We will also discuss how to prevent future issues.
In short, we aim to empower you with knowledge to achieve dental health and invite you to actively participate! This collaborative approach reflects our beliefs and values as a dental practice, but we also hope that it establishes relationships that are long-lasting and fulfilling for you and us.
