Why I Serve

Smiles on Wings

I demonstrate proper dental hygiene techniques to underprivledged children overseas and teach them skills necessary to protect their dental health. Smiles on Wings targets populations with an identified need that are often a considerable distance away from a health care facility.

Thank You for Choosing Us

We want to extend a warm welcome to you and your family. Our dental practice is people-oriented, so we look forward to getting to know you, not only as patients but also as friends.

We believe there's only one way to practice dentistry: with compassion, clear communication, and clinical excellence. And our patients enjoy continuous care that is comfortable and friendly.

Our commitment to your health involves more than quality dentistry. In light of today's heightened awareness, we've established a sterilization program designed to ensure the safety of both patients and dental team. You'll probably notice our masks and gloves, but there's more to it than that. We're proud to insist on high - the highest- safety protocols.

It is our responsibility to help you plan for a future of good dental health while taking time to answer your questions and concerns. So if you need additional information, don't hesitate to ask. Let us know your thoughts about our practice and website. We want to keep you smiling!

 

Our Mission

To have a safe,

"Here, at whatever hour you come, you will find light and help, and human kindness."
