Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Thurber "I understand that oral health effects a patients overall health and well-being.   As such, my goal is to help each patient achieve their optimal level of oral health. This begins with preventive dentistry.  I strive to insure that each patient receives regular recall cleanings and exams. Patients do leave my office without having pain and infection addressed. This may include either dental treatment, antibiotic therapy, or both.  "
