About Us

EXCEPTIONAL CARE FOR EXCEPTIONAL CASES

Patient-led dental care

We talk to many people. We know how many of you would rather wait at the DMV than go to the dentist. That’s why we are 100% committed to surprising your socks off! Our office is full of amazing people who truly care about you. From the way we remember your name when you walk in, to the coffee we offer in the lounge, the details matter. We also believe in patient-led care. That means you’re in charge of your health. You decide about procedures and next steps. You tell us what you want to achieve. We are here to provide guidance, expert advice and the tools you need to reach your goals. You won’t ever catch us nagging about flossing or pushing procedures you don’t want. Nope, that’s not who we are. And we’re proud of that
