Meet the Staff

Being in a dental office can be unnerving at times and that is why Dr. Raulerson`s office staff is friendly, professional and helpful. The office has three hygienists, six dental assistants, three front desk receptionists, and one dental laboratory technician. They all have been working together as a team for a number of years and it feels like a big family.  The focus of the staff and the doctors is directed towards outstanding patient care with an emphasis on making the patient comfortable and top priority.

For us “ We Care “ it is not just a logo, it’s a practice.
