We are proud of our dental team!
We believe it is important to work together as a team, to provide you with the best of care. We have daily and weekly meetings to discuss our patients' needs and how we can improve. We participate in over 70 hours of continuing education courses per year (as a team) to keep current and to ensure high quality service. We have worked hard...and that is why we love our team! We value each other, because we know that each member is absolutely critical in how well we care for our patients.
