Total Commitment to Quality Dentistry
Our dentist and caring staff understand that our job—our only job—is to make our patients feel comfortable, confident, and calm, while solving your dental issues.
Dr. Dougherty, our dental hygienists, our front desk and support staff are here to provide you with convenient appointment schedules, and quality comprehensive dental care ranging from general dental needs to cleanings, fillings, and oral exams, to cosmetic and full rehabilitation care, like dental bridges, dental braces, TMJ treatment, gum disease treatments, root canals, and veneers. And we’re always happy to answer any questions you might have about any procedures, because we understand the value of your complete understanding of your treatment.
Patients always come first
Working together to refine this dental practice over the years, we know what it takes to generate a feeling of confidence in our patients. From the comfort and calmness of our waiting room, to practice room cleanliness, to the practiced dental procedures, right on down to the smallest dental instruments. Everything has been examined, tested, and judged up to our standards.
We’ve always held our dental team to a higher standard. We’ve never allowed our practice to be acquired by a corporate dentistry conglomerate, turning patients into dollar signs and we’ve never lost sight of our #1 goal: Patients always come first.
