Our Philosophy

Dentistry may not excite some folks. And the thought of going to see your dentist may not have you canceling your golf tee time. We get that. And while we know we may not make a convert out of everybody, we think we were put here on the corner of 14th and Lovejoy to change that perception--and over fifteen years later, we’ve done a pretty good job of it too!

We take the advanced clinical stuff seriously. We geek out about the F-stops on our intra-oral photography and shade selection for our veneers, all the way to the latest research and the particular characteristics of the composites we use in our restorations. We’ve got the tech part down too: collaborating with the best labs that use 3D milling, safest in digital imaging, low-radiation dental CT units to plan for implant restorations, text appointment confirmations, paperless charts and cloud servers for our records.

But you know what sets us apart? Nice People. We specialize in those. Nice people with a smile on their faces who are happy to be of service. That is the first and most important part of what we do every day, and what motivates us. Payment options, insurance, billing, coding, forms, and all the stuff that give you a headache and keep you away: we’ll take care of them, so you don’t have to. You needed to get in yesterday-fast? Not a problem. You’ve been talked at, and not talked to, in the past? Call us and let us show you what you’ve been missing.

Nice looking office. Staff greated with a smile. Cleaning with Mandy was amazing. She was gentle yet thorough. Dr Young was amazing. He explained everything that needed to be done in a way anyone would understand. Looking forward to my next appointment.
