Meet the Team

"Thank you Dr. Moore and team..."

"This is my first time visiting Dr. Moore and let me tell you that this office is AWESOME! The hygienist is great, the receptionist is great, the assistant is great, everyone was great! I felt like I was getting my teeth cleaned at home amongst family and friends. The hygienist took her time cleaning my teeth and then explained various techniques and processes that I can use going forward to make sure they stay clean daily and before my next visit. I will continue to visit this office for my dental needs going forward and recommend that everyone make an appointment as soon as possible! Thank you Dr. Moore and team for an exciting dental experience!!!"
