Clayton Smiles
A Great Dentist

Meet the Team at Clayton Smiles

Your comfort is our priority at Clayton Smiles, and our dentists, hygienists, assistants, and front office team work together to provide a great dental experience. We’re all highly skilled professionals but know when to take time to share a joke with our patients or hear about their kids’ latest accomplishments.

You are so much more than your oral health, and we care about what matters to you and what drives your decisions about dental treatment. When developing your personalized treatment plan, we take all these factors into account and make recommendations that align with your unique needs.

Every member of our team is here because they love what they do, and we believe it shows in every interaction, starting with your first phone call. If you want to see the difference that this attitude has to your dental care, we invite you to call, text, or email us for an appointment.

We can’t wait to welcome you to Clayton Smiles!
