It is our purpose at this office to provide care to our patients much like we would for our own family. Family is a very meaningful word. It is family that you are deep down excited to see. It is family that you rush to be ready for. It is a family member that you want to help get exactly what they want. It is family that you care enough about to call after a tough procedure to make sure that they are comfortable.
It is our purpose at this office to offer you, our patient, this kind of care:
We hope that you will take from our office comfort, peace of mind, confidence in your dental health and appearance, and ultimately, added success in whatever you strive to do.
Established in 1989 by Dr. Smith, our philosophy here has always been “Preventative Family Dentistry” based on establishing each patient’s individual needs in a warm and caring atmosphere. The evolution of our clinic has never deviated from that philosophy, the patient experience is our number one priority. The atmosphere and philosophy have remained the same under the guidance of new owners, Adele and Geoff McIntosh.
We think you will appreciate the warm and friendly manner in which we treat our patients. Our commitment is to apply our dental knowledge and skills in a caring and gentle way, so you feel at ease as we help you attain the smile you desire.
Our main priority is to work with you to achieve a smile that can maximize your personal health, appearance, and raise your self-esteem.
We are also a kid-friendly office, and we want you to know that we enjoy patients of all ages!
