Okay, it’s time to meet the team and come clean. Yes, we have an incredible dental practice that is the envy of most other dental practices in our state. But why? I’d like to think it is our fabulous facility or all the continuing education we pursue every year. It could be the high technological advances we employ or even our ability to perform some dental procedures rarely undertaken by other dentists. I’d like to think it is those things, but, alas, it’s not true.

The true secret to the success of our practice is the staff. Yes. I’ve finally said it. Our team is the reason you love coming to our office. Always greeting you with a smile. They are the people looking after your comforts. They are the ones who write the sweet cards, give you warm mouth wipes, and offer you a flower when you leave. Take a look at this picture. You are looking at a team of absolute “givers”. I wish I could say the reason our patients love coming to our practice is the doctors. Yet, the truth is, these ladies work hard every day to exceed your expectations on each and every patient visit. The credit goes to them.
