Talk to Deb about Invisalign...can you tell she is wearing clear braces?

Caring, courteous and professionally trained staff who will provide you with personal attention.

     We believe the doctor-patient relationship is very special. People come to us from a range of diverse backgrounds with one thing in common. They place their faith and trust in us to provide needed dental service for them and their loved ones. This is a responsibility we do not take lightly. We value each person and strive to provide faithful and high quality care.

      We embrace a modern approach to dental care and utilize some of the latest technologies available.  Although these enhancements are a amazing improvement in the way dentistry is carried out, they cannot replace the gentle touch of our compassionate staff.  We want to provide you with more than a "smile", we want to have a friendship partnership with each of our patients.

      There is a lot of laughing in our office.  We enjoy working with each other and supporting and encouraging each other.  Everyone in our office has respect for each other.  We are like a family and share the same goal to serve God and others.
