Raising Awareness On Mental Health

Father, Speaker, Advocate

Dr. Randy is more than just a dentist— he’s a father, leader, speaker, and advocate for mental health awareness. During his time on 'Teen Mom 2', Dr. Randy watched his daughter suffer verbal and psychological abuse from her significant other. This experience pushed Dr. Randy to advocate for victims of "gas lighting" and mental health abuse shortly after the cameras stopped rolling.

Over the years, Dr. Randy has begun speaking publicly at various dental conferences to teach dentists, hygienists, and their staff how to recognize the signs of abuse in patients. Through these efforts, Dr. Randy hopes to empower dental professionals, validate victims, and create safe, thriving communities for all.

Our Patients Love Us!

My experience here has been without a doubt the best experience I have ever had with a dental office. Everyone here is friendly and they recognized me on my second visit!  Questions are answered and concerns are addressed in a friendly manner. I feel almost foolish for resisting my visit to a dentist for help with my teeth. Professional, friendly, and courteous.

This dentist and his staff are amazing.  I was traveling from PA and broke a tooth. They got me in, extracted the tooth and were very reasonably priced. The staff and dentist answered all questions  and were great. I can't say enough good about them.

Very good service! I was able to take care of my cavities on the first visit and in one visit. My old dentist tried to break it into several visits at a much higher cost.
