A note from Dr. Josh Willard

Dr WIllard

I love exceeding people’s expectations. I run my practice on excellence, education, compassion, and respect. I am committed to providing you with the best dental treatment possible. We use our mouths for nutrition, communication, and projection of emotions and confidence to the world. We take a healthy and beautiful smile, and a comfortable and functioning set of teeth for granted…. until it is gone. There is nothing like seeing somebody smile for the first time after we have restored their smile.  But there is nothing better in my practice, than keeping that smile healthy and beautiful year after year.

Nobody knows you better than you.  I believe that you should be involved in planning your oral health care.  This requires that I personally spend time with you to determine what your current health is, what your goals and challenges are, and how you and I will work together to optimize your oral health.  This is easily said, and seldom done these days.  I have assembled a team that knows that doing what is best for you, is our number one priority.  I have a network of trusted specialist that share my values. If you have experienced the high volume, high pressure, high turnover dental practice, I would like you to experience why my patient’s love our office and continue to refer their family and friends to us. 

Continuing to stay up-to-date in dentistry on latest techniques, technology, and materials is very important to me and my patients, aside from current courses I am taking, I am active in the post graduate Pankey Institute for comprehensive dental care, to provide you with the technical and artistic skill to keep your smile beautiful and functional.  Oral health isn’t simply about fixing cavities or broken teeth, it is about taking care of the entire oral system and learning how to care for yourself for years of health.  I will take the time to pay attention to you, answer questions, and explain your treatment options.
