You should know what makes our office air safe! We have replaced or modified elements of our air conditioning system with a cold plasma proton device that uses ionization and upgraded filtration for the removal of particles, viruses, bacteria, and fungi from the air.
Our office has been retrofitted with custom glass doors on all treatment rooms and between the business and clinical sides of our office.
We celebrated 30 years in practice on January 28th, 2021. It has been a privilege to care for our patients and serve this community that we are lucky to call home. We are looking forward to many more years!
