Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
When mobility and transportation difficulties arise, and getting to the dentist for cleanings and care is complicated, we bring our passion, equipment and palliative dental care right to the patient—in assisted living facilities and residential care homes. After delivering dental services for over 30 years, we noticed that long-standing patients were experiencing difficulties coming into the office, so the business found us.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
Besides individual care, we offer complimentary oral health screenings within care facilities to identify ongoing problems and unique dental features that may require specialized daily care. To better blend today’s caregiver and oral health maintenance principles, we also provide complimentary staff “in-service” training sessions.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
We’re a husband-and-wife team—I’m the dentist and Michele is a sought-after dental hygienist. She decided after years of in-office service that she wanted to take her passion and talents directly to individuals who struggle getting into the office. This takes a special provider, and she’s one in a million; she assists me and I assist her, so our clients get two for one.
What’s your hidden talent?
Michele cooks fabulously and entertains with ease, but her favorite is doing floral arrangements for weddings. Mine is believing anything is possible and finding the equivalent blessing when something doesn’t turn out as anticipated.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
Thai Basil for red curry and pad-kee-mow, Dos Coyotes for their Yucatan Chicken Salad, and McCormick and Schmick’s during Happy Hour for the cheeseburger.
