The Team

Our clinicians and administration staff are kind and professional. We enjoy what we do and we think it shows. We hope our patients establish a friendship with their hygienists. Continuity of care can ease the stress commonly associated with dentistry. Many of our assistants have gone on to successful careers as hygienists and dentists. Our commitment is not only to your oral health, but also your overall health. As more and more studies are finding out, the mouth is the window to the rest of your body. With a healthy mouth you increase your health.


Education & Prevention

As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide "dental health care" vs "disease care". That’s why we focus on thorough exams every 6 months - checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we're also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
