About the Dental Society

  • Place the needs of patients before needs of the practice.
  • Continually improve standards of care for all patients.
  • Serve only the true dental needs of patients.
  • Improve the dental health of residents in the community.
  • Maintain and improve professional knowledge and skills.
  • Allow other dentists to clinically review patient treatment.
  • Diligently oversee and direct the activities of other dental team members¬† in the office.
  • Share new knowledge with colleagues
