We were tired of the old model of dentistry, where patients could feel surprised by a diagnosis or sense judgment from their dental team. We’re human, too! We know life is complicated and there can be a lot of things that take priority over your dental health. Our job has always been to meet you where you are–no judgments here–and partner with you to make your smile amazing.
“A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.” –William Arthur Ward
