Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McRae "I think the biggest misconception in dentistry today is that it's the same as it was 25 years ago. That is not the case, and here at McRae Dental, we are showing our patients that we can make things much more comfortable for them. I treat all of my patients with the same care that I would give to my own wife or kids if they were in the dental chair. I will do anything in my power to make a patient's visit the best dental experience they have ever had."
