About Our Practice
New, State-of-the-Art Office | (top)
Our practice is devoted to comprehensive and preventive patient care because we understand that oral health impacts your overall health and well being. We also believe that building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success.
Our gentle doctor and staff take time to discuss your individual dental needs and to listen to your concerns. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience.
For the comfort of our patients, we built an office with a warm, inviting atmosphere and filled it with skilled people who genuinely care about the patients they serve. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
Family Care | (top)
We provide comprehensive dental care for patients of all ages. Children should begin dental visits when their baby teeth start to erupt for regular cleanings and to monitor development and spacing. Early dental care can help prevent problems in the permanent (adult) dentition. We encourage parents to bring their children in to the office to become familiar with the sights, sounds, and friendly helpers in our dental office.
Let us help your children learn the importance of optimal oral health from a young age. In some cases, we refer children to pedodontists, who are specialists in children’s dentistry. We will help you make the best choices for your child’s unique and precious personality.
We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you and your family!
