Our team is the bedrock of our practice!
Team members will always treat you as an individual, not just a name on a page, and consider you to be family. They will put you at ease from the very first visit through the treatment process, and even after as you come in for follow-up visits.
The majority of our team members have been part of our family for over ten years and some have been here since Dr. Jana McQueen started the practice. Many have seen Dr. Janelle McQueen grow up and are excited to now be working with her!
The entire team is truly a family and that is something people new to our practice immediately appreciate: We all work well together and have each other’s back. This allows us to provide the most welcome, stable, and friendly environment in which you’ll achieve your new smile!
~ Dr. Jana McQueen and Dr. Janelle “Dr. Jayy” McQueen
