Meet The Staff

We are especially interested in making all our patients feel right at home! We put your needs first to achieve efficient and comprehensive treatment. Our staff is trained and skilled, and we strive to provide energetic and fun-loving service to each patient. Each member of our treatment team is a registered assistant or licensed hygienist, and our office staff has years of experience in treating patients with the highest level of care. We are patient oriented and truly care for our patients. We take the time necessary to thoroughly educate our patients of their treatment details and progress, and we are always available to discuss any questions or concerns one may have.

We strive to stay abreast of the latest in technological advances by regularly attending continuing education courses and seminars, including courses on CPR, patient management, new products and techniques and professional development.
