Meet Dr. Jill Tetrick
“I hope to assist patients in creating healthy oral habits that will help maintain a good quality of life. I approach dental work conservatively, with a focus on prevention. Our goal is to give our patients positive experiences in a calming environment for a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles.” – Dr. Tetrick
