Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

We are a general dental office that provides comprehensive and honest service to motivated patients. We focus on educating patients regarding their dental options and help them make decisions that will benefit their overall health. Establishing lasting relationships with my patients, based on mutual trust and open communication, is an important factor in my practice.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

We are a general/family dentistry practice, so there are no specific areas we focus on. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and I think that shows in how our office is run.

What are you proud of in your practice?

The quality of care and how we treat our patients! The team we have established to make the overall dental experience a positive one.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy seeing every patient that comes to the practice. Every person is unique and I truly enjoy getting to know them and helping them to achieve their oral health goals. Establishing lasting relationships with my patients, based on mutual trust and open communication, is an important factor in my practice.

    Hadn't been to the dentist in about a year due to insurance changes but Brent and his team were awesome! My hygienist (I can't recall her name - sorry!) was great and explained everything she was doing so I was very comfortable. They had a TV so I could watch while she cleaned/X-rayed, which was pretty cool. Brent was personable and knowledgeable as well. Everyone here was fantastic!

    This was my first visit. The entire staff was incredibly sweet and welcoming. My appointment was right on time (not even a couple of minutes late) and was completed promptly. I have a follow up appointment scheduled with them in two weeks and I'm for once not dreading a Dentist visit. These guys know exactly what good service is.

    They were accommodating when I ran late due to traffic. Exam was thorough. Offered to numb my teeth when I said I had sensitivity.
