Caring and Professional

The Orchard Dental patient support crew is as caring as they are professional. Through frequent and ongoing participation in professional training, the entire Orchard team is dedicated to raising their professional knowledge and bringing current dental industry best practices into our office. Plus, they lead busy lives right here in our local communities. You’ll probably see them cheering along the sidelines of the youth ball fields, or riding on the bike paths.

Dental anxiety? We understand.

For many people, a visit to the dentist causes a certain amount of anxiety due to unpleasant past dental experiences. Our dental hygienists and office team will kindly alleviate your fears right from the start. Want a soothing blanket? Or shaded glasses to block the glare? Our team goes the extra mile to ease your stress as they collaborate with you from consultation to cleanings and beyond. Fear of the unknown can trigger or intensify dental anxiety. At Orchard, you’ll know what to expect before treatment begins.
