Our clinic does not stop at providing quality dental care with top notch customer service.  We make it a point to contribute to the strong sense of community in the Fargo-Moorhead area.  It has been my mission to create a culture within our workplace that focuses on the important things in life.  On foundation day we set a goal to use our business as a platform to do good in our neighborhoods.  We use the negative news observed daily as incentive to create positive change.  I am very proud of our staff and how they have not only embraced the mission but invest their time and energy.  Our team has families and daily obligations to look after but they continue to make it a priority to volunteer.  I have found this involvement has allowed the good nature in our staff to present itself and be used in positive ways.  Our activities have no doubt boosted team morale and provide a welcomed distraction from daily routine.  We are repeatedly humbled and inspired by the great works being performed by so many volunteers in our area who do a great deal more work than we have so far. We look forward to many years of service and thank all who offer their energy to fostering our community.
