What made you choose dentistry?

Collaboration with dentists, hygienists and specialists.  I love that we make dentistry easy and accessible to our patients.

What do you enjoy most about being part of a group practice?
You have to enjoy people to work in a group practice, and we all do!  We laugh a lot while doing dentistry which makes it fun for patients and for our team members.
