Meet Our Waxhaw Dental Team
The warm, outgoing nature of our staff is key to our success. Many patients tell us that we had them at “hello.” We greet each patient by name and ensure our patients feel comfortable and cared for as soon as they step foot in our Waxhaw, NC dental office. But we’re also skilled professionals who bring extensive knowledge and experience to our work. We’re a close-knit team and, just like the three doctors, we’re good listeners who don’t rest until our patients are happy.
