UPTOWN DENTISTRY IN A SMALL, HOMETOWN PRACTICE.
“I feel the dental profession has offered me so many rewards on a daily basis. It is a blessing to spend time with people you live with and care about, helping them with their health, their smiles, and their goals of being their best.
“I am honored to work with a genuinely caring staff that allows me to be my best every day. We treat people like we want to be treated and teach them about their health and their treatment options. We guide people with education to make the best choices for them and deliver the most current technology available.
“I genuinely believe that we make a difference and help people keep their teeth and smiles for a lifetime.” – Dr. Dunlap
