What Our Clients Say About Us


"Dr. Pate restored my smile with an implant. I did not want a bridge because my good teeth would have to be cut down to place crowns that would be part of the bridge. The implant worked GREAT! It is easier to clean than a bridge and feels just like my own teeth. Thanks, Dr. Pate!" Learn More
