Mission Statement

After a decade of providing patient care in different environments such as military, private practice, clinics, and hospitals, it is certain to me that the most underserved population are the children, special needs patients, and patients with severe phobias for dental treatment.
We, at the Dental Surgical Center of Medina, recognize the importance of access to care for this unique patient population. Our mission is to provide the best patient care, where patient comfort and safety is our number one priority.
