Monica Vance, DDS

“For me, dentistry has always been about connecting with others. I enjoy working closely with my colleagues in the dental community on a daily basis, but I particularly enjoy collaborating with patients. I consider it a privilege to be trusted not only with a patient’s oral health, but also anything else they want to share. I want my patients to rest assured that I will always take the time to listen and that I will always work in their best interests.”

I am committed to continuing my education, to delivering the highest quality services and to treating my patients with the respect and compassion they deserve. In short, I strive to uphold the most rigorous professional standards for providing healthcare in order to be a consistently positive contributor to my community.”
