Our Staff

We are especially interested in making all our patients feel right at home! We put your needs first to achieve efficient and comprehensive treatment. Our staff is trained and skilled, and we strive to provide energetic and fun-loving service to each patient. Our clinical staff members possess privileges to dental assist in the Operating Room of the Children's Hospital of the King’s Daughters. They also possess the kind of personalities which interact well with children. It's the kind of job that SELECTS you, not that YOU select! We strive to stay abreast of the very latest in technology and advances by regularly attending local and regional continuing education courses and seminars.
