Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Phelan "Almost everyone that comes through our office door comments on what a beautiful building it is. We know the dental office is not everyone s favorite place so we work hard to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Live plants, soothing music, beverages, and current magazines all help create a relaxing atmosphere. Some patients even come early to catch a quiet moment with the daily paper. On the other side of the waiting room doors you ll find our experienced clinical team. Both doctors and staff take their continuing education seriously, constantly searching for new and better ways to help keep our patients in top oral health. We regularly attend courses and dental conventions, subscribe to a number of dental journals, and maintain memberships with various dental associations. The Drs. Phelan maintain a high standard of care for all their patients. Their greatest wish is to help patients keep their natural teeth for life. We value prevention, with a focus on oral hygiene."
