Michael Gwaltney, DDS

"Take care of your teeth, and they will take care of you."

My Mission

“I have always believed in treating patients like I would want to be treated. I do my best to put each patient at ease and explain all of the treatment options in terms he or she can easily understand. I also try to provide the best overall experience with the least anxiety and pain. I take the time to listen carefully and answer all questions to the best of my ability.

I have seen personally that when teeth are healthy, people are healthy. Teeth and gum issues can impact one’s overall health and sense of wellbeing. Aside from aesthetic issues, this can range from bad breath and poor oral function to health concerns such as dry mouth and heart disease.

I receive the greatest personal and professional satisfaction when I can fix a patient’s smile, relieve their pain, and improve their outlook on maintaining excellent oral health. My goal is to ensure that each patient is happy and satisfied at the end of their appointment.”
