A note from the doctor:
“I am so happy that my career path has led me to Stanhope Family Dentistry. The principles that Stanhope Family Dentistry was built on – excellence in dentistry and the highest standard of patient care – are exactly the foundation on which I have been building my career in dentistry. Nothing makes me happier than to break down the walls of fear in patients, get them to trust and to give them their smiles back. It is very important to me to develop a personal relationship with my patients and to have them leave our office feeling as though they have received the best care, and more importantly, like they were treated like family. ”
