Our Staff

Our friendly and competent staff is dedicated to patient comfort and quality of care. We provide gentle, family oriented dental care to adults and children. 

Our office is dedicated to giving our patients a H.U.G. each time they visit. That is our acronym for outstanding patient care. H.U.G. stands for Helping. Understanding. Guiding. First, we will Help our patients with all aspects of each and every visit, whether that entails helping to fill out a form, to helping file a dental insurance claim. Then, we aim to Understand what each patient's goals are and what motivates them fulfill their ideas of proper oral healthcare, and how we can get them where they want to be. Finally, once we have helped our patients give us a clear understanding of what they want, we Guide our patients every step of the way through the process, from Idealization to Realization.

Your smile is your first chance at a "good first impression."

A beautiful, healthy smile is one of your most valuable assets and should last a lifetime. Picking the right dentist is important in the maintenance of a valuable smile and for the overall health of your mouth.
We look forward to taking care of all your dentistry needs.

You don't have to brush all your teeth--just the ones you want to keep
