Meet Our Team
The dental team members are perhaps the greatest asset of our practice. On an individual basis, each team member is an exceptionally skilled and knowledgeable professional who exudes confidence and dependability. Everyone receives ongoing clinical education as well as advanced training in management skills, computer software updates, and guest services. Patients consistently comment on the levels of friendliness and personal attention they receive while in our care. We take great pride in our team’s ability to remain focused on both the patient’s clinical and personal needs.
