“I think dentistry is the greatest hobby in the world. It offers more rewards and satisfaction than anything I can think of if we learn how to do it successfully with predictability. It also rewards good practitioners and staff with wonderful relationships that endure." - Dr. Pete Dawson
“I am truly passionate about providing exceptional, painless restorative dental care and its impact on the health and quality of life of my patients. As a child, I remember my fear of the dentist and having to chew on painful teeth, embarrassed by the black cavities in my front teeth and crooked smile. One compassionate dentist changed all that, alleviating my fears and restoring my diseased mouth. He taught me about cavities and prevention.
Later, braces gave me a comfortable, healthy, and confident smile. I want to do the same for my patients. I want to know their stories and goals for their health and smiles. I enjoy and understand the importance of spending time with my patients to educate them about the benefits of good oral health and prevention. I want to understand their concerns and create a customized plan to help meet their goals and objectives. Thereby providing long-lasting, comfortable, functional, confident smiles.”
