Being listed in our directory does NOT guarantee in any way that the practitioner follows all that our Standards of Practice advise. For no two dentists practice exactly the same way. This doesn’t mean that the care you receive from one will be better or worse than the care you receive from another, just different.
If you have special needs - for instance, a fragrance-free environment - we encourage you to ask questions before visiting any office.
