Working with You As a Partner in Your Health

As you know, your oral health and overall health are connected. From inflammation to heart disease, the health of your teeth and gums impact the health of the rest of your body. We help you to take charge of your dental health through advanced family dentistry.

Our Mission

At Metro East Dental, your body is your vehicle, helping you to live your life to the fullest. That’s why we do our best to deliver high quality, professional dental services to every patient who walks through our door. We want to help you live your best life! On top of that, our team believes that dental care should be ethical and non-judgmental. We won’t judge you or treat you differently if your at-home hygiene has been spotty. We’ll work with you to work toward optimal oral health. We want every patient to feel welcomed and taken care of and to know that they have a dentist who cares for their long-term health.

When you rely on Metro East Dental, you know that you’re partnering with a team who has passion and drive for what they do. Get your dental needs taken care of by a dental clinic that cares about the health of your teeth through outstanding dentistry.

May, a dentist who believes deeply in providing every person with not only professional dental services and tooth healing, but also with a human connection that makes them feel welcome. Metro East operates on these principles and continues to live up to this standard in everything we do.
