When I was three years old, my mom asked my brothers and me what we wanted to be when we grew up.
“A dog!”, I said.
“Hmmm, what kind of dog?”, she asked.
“A Blue Dog!!” I replied.
Years later, it was this simple idea from which Blue Dog Family Dentistry was born. Boy, were my family and friends surprised that I’m a Blue Dog after all. No, this Blue Dog is not furry, but friendly, passionate, and focused on bettering our community.
Here at Blue Dog Family Dentistry, we strive to treat our patients with respect, honesty, and compassion. We value working with you to help you make the best choices for your dental health. Our philosophy is to treat our patients as we would like to be treated, with genuine kindness and respect.
We won’t lead you astray.
We’d love to know, would you like to be a Blue Dog, too?
Gentle. Friendly. Genuine. Skilled.
