We Take Pride in Our Work and it Shows!
Why us? In a word, RESULTS. Good outcomes don’t happen by chance; they require time, skill, judgment, attention to detail, integrity, and for us, pride and joy. We live by the axiom that if you take pride in your work and love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.
We come from a family of three dentists with more on their way. We hold each other to very high standards and as you might expect, dentistry is the topic of discussion at family events. This synergy and the life changing joy our treatment brings to patients, is our families foundation.
Our associate dentist Troy Patterson, DDS comes from a family of five dentists and our Certified Dental Laboratory technician Ross Roshto, CDT comes from a family of three dental professionals.
When you visit us, you’ll enjoy the following:
- Private treatment rooms
- Digitally aided diagnosis and treatment presentations
- Patient education and information
- Onsite Lab
- 3D X-ray (costly and rare for a dental office, but indispensable for dental implant placement)
