To Our Practice Family:

Patients who have been in our practice for years know that our practice is unique because we are size limited due to design, not necessity. We have been in practice over 20 years. Our philosophy is to enhance the circle of quality by staying away from a large overstaffed clinic setting. Our care is based heavily on European technology and quality materials along with Far Eastern and European work ethics. This allows for a type of practice where personal care is a standard.
As a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, I strongly share the Academy philosophy of responsible patient care through dedicated participation in lifelong continuing dental education.
To enhance the quality of care and comfort, improvements are constantly added to our repertoire.
Highlights include, and are not limited to:
