Women, generally, prefer female dentists due to smaller, less threatening hands .  If a person  had a  poor childhood experience at the dental office,  the dentist was usually a male only because, until recently, almost all dentists were male.  Women are generally perceived as more sympathetic listeners and people are often embarrassed about the state of their mouth.  At our office,  we do not lecture or berate patients for their habits.  Our mission is to help.  Large numbers of people simply will not go to the dentist because their fear and anxiety prevent them from enjoying the benefits of a healthy smile.  A smile can open career opportunities, improve relationships, and increase confidence.  Overcome your reluctance to try the dentist and stop by for a tour of our comfortable office, and meet our friendly knowledgeable staff.  We offer gentle, caring dentistry.
