meet the staff
Each staff member works to make your dental experiences positive and rewarding while providing the best possible care. From scheduling appointments, to performing cleanings and applying sealants, to assisting Dr. Sato, we strive to communicate well with our patients so you understand the purpose of techniques and treatments. We take time using models, pictures, and digital imaging to help you understand the best course of treatment for your dental health.
