Dr. Kemp’s Dental Testimony
The fantastic thing about being a family dentist is that it gives me a unique opportunity to practice my passion of encouraging people along with providing a detailed service for my community. My reason for going into the profession of dentistry (after studying to be a research chemist) was that it ensured that I would be literally with people by helping them all day. I want to be a blessing for folks who were hurting.
My philosophy of care centers on encouragement and education. If we as a team can motivate a patient to improve their overall oral health, then their desire to embrace prevention will take root. Daily care habits will improve and their overall their dental experience will be much easier.
Throughout 2 decades of practicing dentistry and serving the community, I have continued to stay on the cutting edge of the delivery of the highest quality of dental care. From cosmetic, elective dentistry, oral surgery, placing dental implants, single visit crowns, to dentures, bridges and root canals I strive to provide the best service as personally as possible. I have treated children as young as age 2 to seniors in their 90’s – even a patient at the age of 100 years old. Our office is a safe, family environment where each patient is treated with respect of their desires, time and abilities.
