Meet Dr. Garr

My Personal Story…

“My interest in dentistry began as a young boy. At an early age I was inspired by my grandfather who was known as a perfectionist in his field. He worked as a dental technician for over 50 years. While dentistry is very technical and ever changing with new technology and materials, I believe the most important component to our practice is the relationship we build with our patients. Dentistry is really about people first. A successful outcome for me is a happy patient that I’ve been able to help along the path to optimum health. I believe the mouth is the window to the body. If the mouth is healthy, it’s far more likely that our body will be as well. I feel privileged to be able to assist others to achieve better health.”
