Our friendly and highly trained team

The Team

Specially trained to work with children in issues of behavior, self-esteem and motivation, we do more than work on smiles — we form lasting and trusting relationships with children and parents alike.

Our team is dedicated to your child’s care and treatment and will always be there to answer your questions and to explain treatment options. We’re here to make your time with us as comfortable as possible.

If you would like one of our health care educators to speak to your students or group, please contact us at 775-824-2323.  Our educators will provide an interactive learning experience for children about dental health care.  There is no charge as it is one of the ways we give back to our community.
