Meet Our Team
Leola, Front Office Manager
“In our office, we are not just co-workers, we are more like a family. We love to do things together, even on our days off. Our entire team really cares about doing their best for our patients, all the time, whatever it takes. We love to help people smile, both as dental care professionals and as friends. We love to laugh, and that always brings a smile to everyone. I heard someone say a long time ago ‘If you see someone without a smile, give them one’, and that has stuck with me. I always try to greet our patients with a smile!!”

“I always tell my patients that I used to be afraid of going to the dentist too! I overcame my fears when my dentist listened to my concerns and made me comfortable, and I try to do this with all of my patients today.
We intentionally spend a little more time with each patient so that we can make certain their needs are fully met while they are in our care. We have such a great family atmosphere; we really do enjoy your visit when you come to see us – be sure to arrive early and bring photos!”
