Our Philosophy

Comfortable Environment

The way you feel during your visit matters to us. We construct a relaxed and friendly environment with a caring team whose gentle touch comforts those with any level of dental anxiety. At All Smiles, we go above and beyond what is expected when it comes to our service and care for you.

Personalized Care

Some dentist offices feel like an assembly line — in and out with no personal care. That's not how we treat our patients here. We take the time to get to know you personally so we can create a customized plan to meet your unique needs. We enjoy building relationships that last. To us, you're family.

Prompt Treatment

We are conscientious of your busy schedule and strive to make sure appointments are on time and treatments are prompt. Additionally, we will never rush you. We pride ourselves in our ability to strike the balance of prompt and thorough care.

Knowledgeable Team

From the front desk to the treatment chair, our knowledgeable team is a reliable resource and will answer any questions you might have. We are more than happy to go over pricing and insurance before you begin your care, as well as provide a thorough explanation of your treatment plan. We want you to be well informed so you can feel secure and confident in every decision you make.
