WHAT DOES DR. BACON LIKE ABOUT BEING A DENTIST?

Dr. Bacon enjoys listening to what his patients want and communicating with them to make sure that they understand everything prior to receiving care. His primary concern is your dental health, and the entire office is oriented around prevention. If you’re not already in good health, he knows what to do to get you there and how you can maintain your health to minimize future needs. Many patients that came in with multiple problems now visit just to get their teeth cleaned and are seldom in need of more dental work.
