About Us

Dr. PadenDr. Paden

My patients tell me that one of the biggest distinctions about my practice is my belief in co-diagnosis and how there are never any surprises. You’ll always know what to expect because you’ll always play a major part in your care. I thoroughly explain each treatment plan and encourage my patients to share their feelings, fears and expectations so that together we can create the smile they’ve always wanted.”
