Hey, we're family.
Get to know us.
We have collectively over 100+ years of service behind our clinical and clerical team. This experience allows for seasoned employees to aid in the communication and service of your dental needs. Dental Assistants who have received additional training will also be able to provide services under the direct supervision of the dentist. Assistants also help communicate and organize dental treatment for you. Our hygienist will offer to use a camera that can take pictures inside of your mouth so you can see exactly what we see when your teeth are examined.
