Dr. Justin and Dr. Brandon are cousins and have always had the goal to practice together. In the Spring of 2018, that goal became a reality. They both strive to foster a true family atmosphere with our dental team and patients. In 2022 we were fortunate enough to welcome Dr. Shayla Porter to our team. We pride ourselves in making every effort to help patients feel at home.
We offer evening and weekend appointments to better accommodate your schedule and are currently accepting new patients of all ages! We hope your first visit to our clinic will be the beginning of a long trusted relationship.
