About Our Dental Office

Today, many dental offices schedule multiple patients for the same appointment time. That means you go from sitting in the waiting room to sitting in the dental exam room as the dentist and team members rush in and out. We do things a little differently. Our dentist and team members will take the time to get to know you personally, establishing relationships because we truly care about every person we treat. We’re also dedicated to your comfort throughout the time in our dental office. We offer free WiFi, so you can check your emails or watch your favorite cat videos, and you can use your own phone or tablet to play your favorite music in our treatment rooms. We also offer Netflix, Hulu, and Pandora in the exam rooms. In order to ensure you receive high quality, effective dental care, we utilize all the most innovative dentistry techniques and technologies.
