Elli

Certified Dental Assistant

Building relationships with my patients and sharing in their lives is what I love most about my job. Helping to make someone's dental experience easier and more comfortable for them is my daily goal. As the ortho assistant in the office I take pride in seeing the changes we make in kids’ lives as they transition from adolescents into young adults and the joyful confidence a beautiful smile brings. After all, your smile is the most beautiful thing you can wear!

Tara

Certified Dental Hygienist

My purpose is to help people achieve a state of optimal dental and oral health personally appropriate for them. By continually striving to provide excellence in personal and professional service, I intend to accomplish this in a gentle and caring manner, in turn enhancing my patients lives. You don't have to take care of all your teeth, just the ones you want to keep!

Krista

Practice Manager

Getting to know our patients and helping them to feel relaxed and comfortable in our office is the best part of my job.  Knowing that every member of our team puts our patient first and provides the very best dental care possible, makes this office a great place to work.  Clearly explaining dental treatment options, finances with and without insurance and fitting that into a budget that gives optimal care without breaking the bank is what our administrative team specializes in.
