Sackheim Family

Our Practice Philosophy

It is the goal of both Drs. William and Lara Sackheim to provide you with the best possible dental care in a no stress, non-judgmental environment. We both truly enjoy and are passionate about Dentistry. We always strive to be up to date in both the latest technology and the most modern techniques and procedures in all areas of Dentistry. We care about your dental health and will help return your mouth and smile to its healthiest. We pride ourselves in practicing honest and conservative dentistry. You will only be planned for treatment you need. While we do offer many cosmetic services, we know that many people are happy with their smile and just want to keep and/or return their mouth to health and that is what we are here for. If a better smile is what you are looking for, we will be glad to discuss with you all your options. Pros and cons of all dental treatment options will be discussed thoroughly with you, and after being fully informed, it is your decision what treatment options you want to pursue.
