Dentistry with Integrity

Dentist Hoover

The 7 Pillars of Integrity

  • Honesty: Tell the truth, being open, and never take advantage of others. 
  • Respect:  Seek information, ask polite questions, and give the other person the opportunity to speak and explain. Respect can only be earned, and it is achieved when there is mutual effort applied.
  • Generating trust:  Trust develops when people demonstrate reliability and positive commitment. Actions do speak louder, in this instance, than words.
  • Pride:  Caring about an outcome, going to considerable effort to achieve that outcome, and knowing that you’ve made a valuable difference.
  • Responsibility:  Being responsible demonstrates awareness and caring for those around you and goes hand-in-hand with trust.  
  • Keeping promises:  If a promise is made, that promise will be kept.
  • Helping others:  A person is really only being helpful when someone has demonstrated a need.  Whether the goal is a more beautiful smile, to alleviate pain, the ability to chew more effectively, or addressing any other oral health concerns, we will always do everything we possibly can to help you achieve those goals.
