Meet Our Team

Here at QC Family Dentistry, we’re committed to keeping up with the latest in dental techniques and technology. Our team members complete many hours of continued education each year, in order to bring the most up-to-date experience and knowledge to our patients. All five of our dental hygienists are trained to administer local anesthesia, so they’re always able to relax a patient who might be feeling a little discomfort. Our patients tell us this makes a huge difference in their appointments, because they never have to wait for relief -- it’s on the spot.
