I became a part of the Lanier Valley Dentistry family in 2015 and have thoroughly enjoyed seeing a different, more pleasant side of dentistry, by combining both cutting edge technologies, with the finest, most gentle patient care. Being a part of the Lanier Valley Dentistry family Team means giving the best possible dental experience to our patients, by providing quality dentistry with confidence and ease.
