Luke Antonos Jr., DMD
From a technical stand point he is a perfectionist. He always strives to first take time to educate his patients fully and then to achieve the best possible results with the most conservative treatments available first. His most important goal is to treat his patients with compassion and a full understanding for his patients’ treatment needs and wants. As he had his fair share of dental problems as a young adult, he can easily place himself in his patient’s shoes, which constantly reminds him that the surgeries he performs are not routine from his patients’ perspectives. He can easily relate to some of the apprehensions and psychological concerns patients sometimes experience which allow him to always listen and address them with his patients. He believes that these skills allow him to provide better and more comfortable care.
