Meet Our Doctor

People often ask what we mean by “master.” In Bend’s sports community, a master is one who typically has deep history in an activity, continually learning and practicing to become their best for the simple purity of being the best one can be. Here, our art — our science — is optimizing dentistry for you, each of our clients. It is our art and our service.
