About Us

What we Do Differently

The entire team at Family Smiles believes in treating you as one of our favorite family members – we educate you about your mouth, discuss treatment options with you, review financial matters and insurance concerns with you, and truly try to achieve the highest level of comprehensive dentistry on each and every patient. We pride ourselves in providing conservative dentistry that looks beautiful and healthy. Ultimately, it is YOUR mouth, and we want you to understand it and feel good about your smile. We also like to have fun and learn about you and your family!.
