As a member of the team since 2008, I can honestly say, “I love going to work!” Our team is like One Big Happy Teeth Loving Family. Originally from Indianapolis Indiana, I relocated in 1992, one week before Hurricane Andrew… “Eeeek!” I still love visiting my “Indy” home with my 2 kids Hayli and Dhanin. My kiddos are also patient’s of the Doctors and they both have beautiful amazing Smiles. Dr’s W & R are the absolute best! We have the best patient’s and I always aim to do my best to ensure that each patient’s visit to our office is a pleasant and wonderful experience.
