Our Staff Sets a New Standard for Patient Care

Our staff is a major reason why our patients and referring doctors feel so comfortable with our practice. We choose and employ the very best people.

We encourage all members of our staff to get to know our patients and those who have referred them. We know this takes extra time and effort, but results in a greater understanding of patients’ needs.

Each staff member receives continuing education at regional and national dental meetings. In addition, we provide consistent clinical training and ongoing professional development.

All of our licensed dental assistants are proficient in procedures and protocols specific to root canal therapy. Our front office staff will help you understand your financial options for paying for treatment and can assist with dental benefits and insurance reimbursements.
