in staying family-owned and community-centered. My brother, sister, and I would often visit him at the office, and we never knew anything different than the immense dedication of a family-owned dental practice. My dad was always focused on making sure his patients and staff felt appreciated and cared for because he believed everything else would then fall into place.

And as my dad taught us, everything else falls into place when you remain dedicated to others.
