Guiding Inspiration

“Aim to be in the top 10% of your profession; always do the right thing for every person, and treat every person as a child of God.”
~ Dr. Peter Dawson

“When a patient comes to your office and you fix their teeth, you’ll help them smile a little bigger. When a patient comes to your office and knows how much you care about them and others in your community, you’ll help them smile with more than just their teeth, you’ll help them smile with their heart.”
~ Wyman Hofeditz (Grandpa)
