What is the mission of your business?
Our mission is to give focused attention to each person and treat them with respect and integrity as we provide excellent dental care.
What do you like best about your line of work?
It is fulfilling to prevent and relieve pain and to help improve a person’s self-confidence by making their smile more beautiful. Our opportunity to improve a person’s quality of life, in addition to improving their health, is what motivates and inspires us.
How do you keep up with the latest advances in dentistry?
We invest heavily in continuing education and enjoy learning about more than “just teeth.” All of our doctors have delved into extensive education on the jaw joint and how to treat our patients’ dental needs holistically, instead of merely putting out fires with individual problem teeth.
What is it like to run a business and work side-by-side with your spouse?
When we are both in the office seeing patients, we hardly see each other. We have taken on different roles in handling the business management side of things, playing to our strengths and interests. The hardest part is picking a time and place to stop talking about work so that our three young daughters don’t grow up knowing about the ins-and-outs of root canals from age 2!
What is new for your business right now?
Six months ago, we added an additional dentist to our team: Dr. Natalia Antley. She is very well trained and has blended seamlessly with the culture of our practice. In November, we moved into a new facility that is beautiful, gives us more much-needed space, and provides the perfect setting for the type of care that we strive to deliver.
