Devoted to Painless, Leading-Edge Care
I am proud to be part of the dental profession. It is an ever-changing and fascinating field with tremendous variety. Today we are able to save teeth and replace missing teeth more effectively than even 20 years ago. It’s exciting to re-design someone’s smile and give them the confidence they deserve. It’s just as exciting to relieve a person’s pain and restore them to comfortable chewing.
Dentistry is about caring for a person’s oral and overall health. The entire body is connected, and without good dental health, one cannot be in their best overall health. Likewise, an unhealthy body can leady to an unhealthy mouth. At Progressive Dental, we work with each patient to help them develop a healthy mouth and body. We spend a lot of time teaching and educating patients on proper home dental hygiene, good nutrition, and positive habits.
I truly enjoy the relationships that develop with my patients. As a family-friendly dental office, we care for the children, parents, and grandparents. My patients become my friends, and I like seeing them and their families grow and change. I look forward to each person’s visit as a time to hear what’s been happening with them and strengthen our bond. — Dr. John Skibiel
