About Us

We want your time with us to be relaxing. Sample a hot spiced cider or a cool glass of water as you peruse a magazine in the waiting area. Settle into our comfortable treatment chair and don a pair of headphones to listen to some of your favorite tunes. Look out upon our naturally landscaped shrubs and trees and maybe even see a deer or two. Our well trained and professional dental team will make you feel at ease before, during, and after your appointment. You can rest assured that you are in good hands.
