“I became a dentist for many reasons but two stand above the rest. My number one reason is to get people out of pain. It is always such a personal reward when I see the relief in patients’ eyes after I have administered anesthesia, numbed the pain, and treated the problem. My number two reason is to make a difference in people’s lives with their smile. It really is amazing how you can affect someone’s self-esteem and quality of life by giving them both a beautiful and functional smile.”
Dr. Sammons and his team are committed to continuing education and exceed the required state post-graduate trainings to excel on all modern aspects of dentistry including: cosmetic straightening, dental implants, anxiety-free sedation, root canal therapies, teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, resin bonded fillings, periodontal therapies, TMD/TMJ treatment, and partials. Dr. Sammons’ calming demeanor will help ease the anxiety many individuals have when seeking dental treatment. He takes great pride in his work to exceed patient expectations.
