About Our Team

About Our Team

Dr. Patty’s staff is more a family than an office staff … in fact, some of us have been with her since the very beginning of the practice! We value our patients as our friends and will make you feel at home from the very first phone call. We have a lot of fun seeing many of our patients and their families outside the office when we’re involved at local community events, and have a reputation for making the best balloon animals around.  We love children and make learning the importance of taking care of their teeth fun! Of course, we love working with parents and grandparents, too, and we’d like to introduce ourselves. Come say hi!
