What We Are

Natural Smiles was created with the following in mind:

what-we-are1) To create a relationship based Salem dental office that focuses on optimal dental and denture care in a high tech and comfortable setting,

2) To be an integral part of the Salem community, supporting charities and causes important to both us and to the world at large,

3) To create a team of leaders committed to self-improvement both personally and professionally.

This is how we do it:

1) To create a relationship based dental office that focuses on optimal dental and denture care in a high tech and comfortable setting, Our team spend the necessary time “discovering” who our patients are as individuals and what they desire out of our professional relationship. We feel that everyone deserves to hear what their ideal smile looks like to them. Through our consultation process, the patients decide what works best for them in their current lifestyles and personal situations.

We focus on three aspects of dentistry that are necessary to provide optimal care

1) Health of the teeth and gums

2) The function of the teeth as they relate to the jaw joints (or TMJ)

3) The aesthetics of the smile

By focusing on the health, the function and the aesthetics, the dentistry that we provide will look exceptional and natural, and it will have the opportunity to be long-lasting with minimal problems.

2) To be an integral part of the Salem community, supporting charities and causes important to both us and to the world at large,

We wanted to create a viable business that was not only successful but also has great significance.

It brings us great joy in knowing that we are doing our part in making this world a better place. We encourage others to support organizations that are important to them.

3) We spend countless hours as a team training and identifying ways to better serve our patients. While we are growing personally to be the best individuals that we can be, we are able to be the best at our roles in serving you professionally.

We believe that effective communication is essential for our continued success as a great place to work and a stellar place to do business for all patients and team members.

We believe that teamwork is key to working effectively toward our mission, being committed to giving 100% and to working collaboratively with shared responsibility and accountability.

We believe that quality is a core value that enables us to strive continually toward reaching our mission and goals, and to achieving excellence in all that we do, resulting in our consistent feeling of pride in our work at Natural Smiles.

Mission Statement:

The mission of Natural Smiles is to create a lasting relationship built on trust, care, and an understanding that it takes a partnership to craft that unique smile that shows the world who you really are.
