Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Larson "I have been practicing dentistry for forty four years with one goal...to provide the highest quality service for the patients who have entrusted their care to me. Each patient is treated with the same regard as my family, for they are indeed my dental family. I use the most current and proven technology to ensure the most comfortable, esthetic and longest lasting restorations. I stress home-care and diligent maintenance to foster long term success.
