Our Staff

Share:

Our friendly staff is extremely effective in making patients feel right at home, especially those with the "dental jitters.” Our staff strives to be the eyes and ears of our practice. We encourage our patients to share with us personal events or celebrations, and equally can be a shoulder to lean on when things aren't going your way. Our connection to our patients is what develops a great relationship throughout treatment.

Our orthodontic assistants have years of experience in treating patients with excellent, compassionate care; their goal is to make your orthodontic experience a pleasant and comfortable one.
