"My mission is to educate patients regarding the synergistic relationship between oral health and overall wellness. To instill a mindset that prevention is truly the key. To treat people as I would like to be treated; with a genuine heart, authenticity of spirit, transparency, courtesy, warmth, a little bit of humor, lots of laughter, and the utmost of mutual respect and humility." When she isn't practicing dentistry, Dr. Dutton's life currently revolves around family time. Her husband, a retired dentist, is her best friend. Dr. Dutton and her husband are both foodies, and they love to critique the best of the best restaurants' cuisines with their three sons and their families. Together, they dote on their Rottweilers while sightseeing the country in their motorhome. In her spare time, Dr. Dutton enjoys gardening and spending quality time with her mother and grandchildren. She also declares herself a total info geek, as she loves reading and learning. Dr. Dutton has several websites featuring her favorite topics, like cooking, Paleo, large breed dogs, gardening, prevention, alternative medicine and living, and flying drones!
"We are passionate about providing patients with quality, comprehensive oral health care in a comfortable and welcoming environment."
