Meet the Niles Team

Niles Office

I bought this existing practice in Niles in 2015. I am very happy with the staff and I highly respect the fact that most patients have been coming here for many, many years. Patients seem very pleased and comfortable at this office. We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. We are committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
