    Dr. Blake LaTendresse, DDS

    I believe that patients are entitled to three things, absolute honesty, my best care possible, and a healthier smile/life. I never want to lose sight of the person in the chair, and believe that patients should feel totally comfortable and confident. I truly believe that having a fantastic patient experience goes hand in hand with having successful clinical outcomes.

    My responsibility to dentistry is a perspective shift: of how patients view their oral health, how patients view dentistry, and how different the standard of care can be. I will care for the person first, while I treat what ails them.
