Our team at Dr. Bobby Brown and Associates have been carefully selected, and trained to enable us to provide optimum quality and care to our patients. Morning meetings, seminars, conventions, team building courses, and having fun is an essential way we ensure that each and every team member has a similar work ethic and philosophy. Our long- term team members have built relationships with some of our patients for the last 10-23 years. We hope you have the opportunity to meet each member of our team and feel at ease to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
You the patient are the reason we come to work each day and we want to make your experiences with us as pleasant as possible. We understand that some of our patients have a certain level of fear and anxiety when coming in for a dental appointment, and we hope the more you get to know us as people we can change your outlook and make it a positive and ongoing experience for a lifetime.
