We are open! If you have missed your appointment during the mandated COVID-19 shutdown, we can’t express how important it is to come in for your checkup. It is now a year since your last checkup. We miss you and look forward to seeing you soon!
We have enjoyed living and practicing in this great community of Maple Grove, and we believe that this has been vital to our continued growth and success. We believe that as healthcare professionals, we all strive to provide the highest level of care using not only the latest but the most suitable materials and technologies available to us. But it is how we deliver our care to our patients that really makes us stand out. The old adage of "bedside manner" or in our case "chairside manner" can't always be taught or purchased, and I believe we possess this to cultivate the ever so important relationship between us and our patients.
