Each team member is working to make your child’s dental experiences positive and fun while providing the best possible care. From scheduling appointments to performing cleanings and applying sealants to assisting the doctors, we strive to communicate well with patients and their parents so you understand the purpose of techniques and treatments. We use proper terminology, show-and-tell, models, pictures, hand mirrors, etc. to help each patient understand what is happening on their own level.
We love children and are here to help. Please feel comfortable asking questions of both us and the doctors.
