Words From Dr. Pavel: 

“To me, oral health and total health are synonymous—one is a reflection of the other. Self care and healthy living are some of my passions, and true joy comes from helping my patients make the best choices for their mouth, knowing that the ripple effect will undoubtedly enhance their quality of life. I want my patients to feel comfortable and empowered when they sit in the dental chair. Health, aesthetics, and function all go hand in hand, which is why I like to take a comprehensive assessment to uncover and help heal any dental problems at their source of disharmony while ensuring I help you achieve your personal smile goals. I want you to have a beautiful, healthy smile, and a beautiful, healthy life!”
