Because we believe long-term relationships matter, nearly all of our team members (administrative, assistants, hygienists) have faithfully served our patients for almost a decade. Although their extensive experience is invaluable, it's their passion for people that makes your personalized dentistry a unique experience and leaves a legacy that goes beyond dental care.
