They say it takes a village to raise a child. But it takes a team when it comes to providing a great dental experience from start to finish.
It begins with dentists who lead by example and are committed to providing personalized, high-quality dentistry, like Drs. Alisa Reed and Stacey Smith at Dental Designs by Alisa Reed. Yet as a patient, you interface with the whole team, not just the dentists, which is why Dr. Reed has hand-selected a team that shares her patient-first approach and genuinely cares for and supports one another.
“I’m blessed to have such a remarkable team. Everyone has a genuine, heart-felt passion about caring for our patients and treating them like part of the family as well as one another,” Dr. Reed shares.
Dr. Smith adds, “We have a friendly, collaborative team that loves coming to work each day, and our patients absorb the good vibes. When you’re in a place that’s upbeat and happy, you can’t help but feel it, too.”
