Happy holidays to you and yours!
We hope this festive season finds you well and excited to welcome the new year. It may seem hard to believe that Christmas is only 25 days away, especially with this warm, dry weather we’ve been having. But don’t worry, we are here to help! We’ve found some local events that are sure to get you in the holiday spirit.
One last reminder, we will be moving our office over the holidays! We will close on December 22nd and re-open on January 8th at 3506 Lochwood Drive. Don’t worry, if you have a dental emergency over the holidays, we have you covered. We are so excited to welcome you to our new office, and we can’t wait to see you there!
