Doctors & Staff

Meet Our Dental Team


When we asked our patients what words would best describe our office, one word stood out: family.  We have been in Walnut Grove for over 20 years, adding more square footage and more staff as our practice grew over the years.  Our patients also appreciate seeing a familiar face when they visit our office.    At Walnut Grove Family Dental we appreciate the value our long term staff bring to the practice.  While most of our staff live in Walnut Grove, some live in Langley and Murrayville.  Allow us to introduce the staff at Walnut Grove Family Dental.
