Message from Our Doctors....
Welcome to Loyal Dentistry! We deeply subscribe to three core values: Being Ethical, Being Compassionate and Being Quality Oriented. Some people feel dental visits are cumbersome and many people only go if there's pain. We want to break those stereotypes and create an environment where patients of all ages feel comfortable and relaxed in a dental setting. Our goal is for you to have a positive experience at every visit.
When you arrive at our office, you will be asked to fill out a health history form (or you may download the form from our website prior to coming in for your appointment--click on button below). Upon completion of necessary paperwork, we will review your health history form with you and discuss any concerns you may have in detail. We find that "listening" is just as important as "doing". We look forward to seeing you and starting a loyal relationship!
