For every one person you see, there are more behind the scenes.
When you’re with a dentist or hygienist, you’re actually being served by the whole team. Technicians, assistants, and receptionists are all busy in other rooms facilitating the time you spend in the chair. It takes everyone working together to create an environment for great dentistry and a place where you feel known beyond just dental.
