Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Phelps III "Dental problems are personal and vary from person to person.  There may be the physical pain of a toothache, the inability to enjoy certain foods, or the distress and embarrassment of an unattractive smile.  A clear understanding of the full nature of your problems comes first.  Then, a plan can be designed specifically that addresses these issues and fits into your life circumstances.  When you visit Dr. Phelps, you receive the full, individualized attention you deserve.  We strive to provide you with extraordinary customer service, and we have a lengthy track record of doing just that. Our goal is to make you well and whole again."
