The team at Bright Healthy Smiles consists of hygienists, front desk coordinators, assistants, managers, and a nutritionist that have chosen to work with us because of their love for children. Every team member came on board with a specific set of expertise and personal characteristics that makes each and every one of them well suited to take care of our young patients and their families.
In addition, the entire team considers it a real privilege to take care of children; from the way our front desk welcomes our families to the way our assistants speak with the children. Our hygienists always find the best way to teach children oral health care. All the doctors have a common goal: to make your child’s experience and yours a very positive and useful one. The Bright Healthy Smiles team does not merely take care of patients but strives to build long lasting relationships and smiles.
