About Our Staff
Have you ever been reluctant to have your teeth cleaned? There is no reason why this should be uncomfortable. What you need is a hygienist who is thorough, yet gentle.

Our hygienist, Vicky, has been with me for over 30 years. She graduated number one in her class and knows her profession. She will often diagnose the patient's needs before I even enter the room. She has adopted our "tell, show, do" approach to dentistry, making your child's first experience one they will look forward to on future recalls. Vicky is a major asset in providing education and preventive dentistry to avoid unnecessary future problems. Vicky is certified to provide nitrous oxide "sweet air" to relax our patients as well as local anesthetics to numb you gums, if you request it for your cleanings. You will love having your teeth cleaned.

Our dental assistants are outstanding. Their skill, knowledge and empathy for the patient would make any dentist proud. Besides outstanding technical ability, they are helpful in answering your questions and relieving your concerns.

Our receptionist, Jay, is thoroughly knowledgeable and capable in the maze of insurance paperwork. Your forms are completed and sent out the same day. I can't overestimate the need for understanding the many insurance companies we deal with daily. Jay and Vicky have the experience and the expertise to maximize your benefit and minimize any out-of-pocket expense.

We never ask patients to lay out moneys their insurance company will eventually pay us. In many cases, we will suggest delaying certain treatments to the next calendar year to use your insurance more wisely. You don't have to be an insurance expert, that's our job.

Have a tough schedule? Jay will offer you an early morning appointment, lunch hour appointment or one on Saturday or in the evening. Do you prefer longer and fewer appointments, or a shorter appointment? Let Jay know your preference so she can be of maximum help with your busy schedule.

After hours, our special operators are available 24 hours - 7 days a week for any of our patients' emergencies.
