Back in the Day…

Well, back when we first graduated from dental school, we were bright-eyed and excited to save the world, one tooth at a time. However, like most new grads, we started out working for a corporate dental office. And, boy, did we get hit with the reality of what dentistry had become.We toiled in those overbook, windowless clinics with an ever revolving door of overworked and underappreciated staff.

Being True to Ourselves

There was barely any time to truly connect with our patients as we were rushed from one room to the next. Patients were seen more as numbers rather than precious human beings. It broke our hearts to not be able to treat our patients with the love and care that they deserved.

At the end of the long workday, we would go home feeling drained and defeated, just to wake up the next day to do it all over again. Was this really what we worked so hard our whole lives for?? 

Certainly, we couldn’t go on working this way – not being true to ourselves or our values. So, we decided it was up to us to change the game…

We are all put on this earth for a greater purpose than ourselves and ours was to create a dental practice that changes the lives of everyone it touches. A practice that reflects who we are and the core values we hold so close to our hearts: Honesty, Excellence, Family, and most of all, LOVE.

Our Mission: LOVE

In conclusion, our mission is simply to love. To nurture and empower families to THRIVE. 

It’s what we wake up every day thinking about and going to bed dreaming about.

We comfort your dental fears with compassion. We empower you with exceptional care and the tools for an amazing smile for LIFE. Because the world needs your light to shine in it, friend.

Thanks for taking a moment to let us share our heart with you.

So, what are you waiting for?? Come in to see us today!

We can’t wait to meet you!
