I have enjoyed 34 ½ years dental assisting here and watched so many of our patients grow up, have kids and bring them into our office. We have a wonderful family practice and a great group of girls working here. I look forward to continuing the quality work and friendly atmosphere that we strive to provide our patients!Jodie Covington, CDA
